Something in the Water

A friend recently introduced me to the work of an amazing environmental activist artist named Wendy Osher (www.wendyosher.blogspot.com.) Currently, she is working on a new installation project called "Something in the Water." This will highlight the effects of plastics, etc on our environment.

She needs the help of crocheters to help realize this project. All you need is a crochet hook and some used plastic bags to participate. For more information, check out her Facebook page (Wendy Osher)for a link providing instructions and an outline of what you need. Hope you decide to participate.

It's a New Year!





A new year has begun and I'm looking forward to a lot of new adventures! This past year has brought some wonderful new friends into my life and strengthened old friendships. This caring circle gets together frequently to share our love of all things fibery! There is lots of laughter, tears, creativity and just plain hanging out together.

I have finished a couple of new sweaters and need to get photos so I can share them here. I've been doing lots of spinning, especially yarns for Waldorf doll makers. The delightful dolls really catch my imagination and have such a magical quality to them.

The weekend of January 22-23 is approaching and I am so excited to be co-hosting a Camp Pluckyfluff at The Shepherdess in San Diego. Lexi Boeger is an amazingly creative spirit and it shows in her yarns. These are truly little works of art! In addition, she is a delight to be around and she inspires spinners to tap into their own artistic well. If you are in the area, sign up and join us for a great weekend!

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year filled with joy, prosperity and creativity!
