Great Sunday!

Pheasant Stroganoff prepared by hubby, r and r on my day of rest....Love it. Yesterday was a fantastic day.  Had many visitors at the galleery, did a demo on making a felted vessel for some seniors, had a visit from an excited teen ager who is going to study international studies at college who loves the Japanese culture. It was so much fun sharing stories with she and her Mom and sisters.

Birds are chirping...they must be very happy.  Thinking of making felted bird houses so mama bird can lay her eggs safely and keep them warm til they hatch. I am not sure what size the holes should be...if anyone has some suggestions, please let me know.

Whew! Finally settling down.

After a whirlwind learning experience in Chicago and Racine,WI, I am finally getting to try some of the new things I learned. I also have big plans to develop a lecture on the Japanese fiber arts in the future....but first must "Make some Art".  Just finished a pleated vessel in blue and purple.  Part of the creation of the vessel was done yesterday in front of the TV camera for possible inclusion in a commercial for Sarpy County amenities....stay tuned...will see if it makes the cut.
