One of the local art galleries is asking artists to make award plaques from cd’s to be awarded to the winners in the juried show in Sept. (They get a more substantial prize as well, of course) So of course I had to play! This one is 2 cd’s and a double layer dvd…the purple. [...]

This one is 4 cd/dvd’s and some sheer ribbon. Plus the little broach in the center.
Wow! It really felted. I really didn’t think it would get this small. It’s about the same size as the Pink one I wove on the 7″ loom. Well, when it dries I’ll do some embellishing and see what i come up with but I’m going to have to find a new yarn to try [...]

Tazeron & Robin sitting on the back step enjoying the last of the evening sunshine. It was a little smoky again today. Not as bad as it was earlier, but not as nice has it has been all last week. Still, we rode up Bonanza King to visit one of the old copper mines and [...]
