Lovely Festival Day

The weather was perfect and the setting divine for this lovely little Festival of Arts at the Pasadena Waldorf School on Saturday. It was wonderful to see lots of old friends. I have been doing Waldorf School shows for a long time and it amazes me that some of the kids are now graduating from college! It is always good to see them coming back to visit. There were some fabulous artists at this show with beautiful items to tempt festival goers.

I have included a few photos of the grounds of the school which is just magical for a school environment in my opinion. The hollyhocks were just starting to bloom which are one of my favorite flowers. There is a picture of my booth and a darling little girl in one of my rag hats, just precious as well a photo of part of the campus. It was just a glorious day that had me smiling and joyful.

Festival of Arts upcoming!

Come and join me at the Pasadena Waldorf School Festival of Arts on Saturday, April 25, 2009, 10A-5P at 209 E. Mariposa St, Altadena, CA (exit at Lake on the 210 fwy and go north towards the mountains, turn left at Mariposa) It is a beautiful setting for a show with lots of wonderful trees and a lovely old Craftsman home. There will be lots of great entertainment as well as talented artists and crafts including paintings, glass, jewelry, spinning, felting, knitting and crocheting as well as handmade dolls and toys. Best of all - admission is FREE!

I love doing shows at this school because it is always a delight and they do things with a definite flair. You will be able to see some of my brand new designs as I will be offering knitted and crocheted hats, garments, bags, handspun yarns, spinning wheels and drop spindles, hand-dyed wool rovings, fibers and hemp and wool/mohair yarns to sell. It promises to be a lovely day with good weather and lots of fun. Hope to see you! I included a few photos of items I will be selling.

Bad, bad blogger

I have been a bad, bad blogger and haven't posted for a while. I do have an excuse though - five new knit designs! Wahoo! All it took was a little hermit mode for me to rekindle my creativity. I have sent most of them out for professional photos but I do have some new pics so you can see at least a little of what I have been up to these days.

The weather has been a bit chilly and so that has kind of kept me indoors. No housework, a little soup making and lots of knitting and crocheting with some spinning thrown in for good measure is the perfect recipe for happiness in my opinion. It has certainly reinvigorated my spirit! Also, I have been knitting from my stash which has encouraged experimentation and the results I will leave to your imagination until the photos come back.

Hope you like the new little leaf capelet and some new photos of some of my favs. I must get back to the sketch books and see what direction to go next.
