Hanging proudly and landing softly

Well the day has finally arrived, I have four purses hanging on the wall of Treasure Gift shop in Wolfville, these are the first of the test bags that I have been weaving material for. I am very grateful to have them displayed in such a wonderful venue surround by many other variety's of wonderful handcrafted items. Treasures is definitely a great place to shop if you are in the market for a unique gift for that special someone. So if you are ever in Wolfville stop in and say hi to Michelle and her friendly staff and check out Kim Ellis Designs bags. OK enough of that, the count down is on three more sleeps before the big trip, I will be gone for eight days and will return with lots of pictures. Speaking of pictures I was in seventh heaven when this dragonfly was on my hand, they are only my most favorite flying critter in the world.

Before and After

Well it sure has been awhile since my last post, sorry for that. I have been working on a hand spun yarn that would be suitable for a chunky scarf and this is what it looks like so far. I have also been weaving and felting material to be used in the making of hand bags, (should have some pic's soon). That is on the studio front. The farm on the other hand is in the process of getting ready for winter, I can't believe that I just used that word but it is just around the corner and not being prepared really stinks. I am also getting ready to go on a eight day adventure and I am so excited I have never done anything like this before in my life, for know I will keep you guessing as to what it is, but believe me it is hard to contain myself... Well off I go to deliver the felted material to my seamstress and pick up a batch of hand bags already done, can not wait for you all to see them. Oh yes I have also joined an on line sketching group as this is also one of the many things I have always wanted to know if I could master, here's hoping.
