Colorful Yarn

Yesterday I took a yarn dyeing class at the St. Lawrence County Arts Council. I have never done this before and went on the invite of a friend. What fun. I thought my yarn came out beautifully. I hope my beginning knitting skills improve quickly so that I can make something worthy of this lovely yarn.

Scenes from my Studio Tour

Here are some of my displays for The St. Lawrence County Artists' Studio Tour. You can see our pastures outside through the window. My studio is in a renovated barn that was originally built in about 1850. There are many of the large hand hewn beams still to be seen.
Here is a close up from the photo above featuring two strung necklaces and two of my felted flowers brooches.

This photo captures several of my free form peyote bracelets and two peyote stitch necklaces.
It was a wonderful time for all. Many people came and tried out fused glass and ceramic bead making. Everyone who came was very supportive of my work and I thank all for making my studio tour this year such a success.
Later this week I will post some of my guests' creative work in glass and ceramic beads.
