New Header!

Header/Banner, whatever they're called, don't you love my new one???? Made by my dear friend, Linda Fleming it's so beautiful it may just motivate me to post to this blog more often! I fell in love with the header Linda uses on her site and asked her to make me a similar one....I'm soooo happy with it!
I'm still knitting. Having arthritis in my lower back from too many years throwing pots on the wheel, I can't sit very long at a time at my studio work table doing the other art work I love. But knitting I can do in my easy chair and I can still feel creative in the process! I'm working on a sleeveless cardigan (vest?) right now and I''m very pleased with the way it's looking. I'll post a photo when I get a little further along with that.
Meantime, I'm taking Jean Bernard's Dress Form class....but am having to wait for supplies to be delivered so I can begin. We have no really good craft shops in this area, but I have to journey across the Bay Bridge next week, so I'll pop in to Michael's while I'm over there. Living in a semi-rural area is relaxing and comforting in retirement, but I do miss the shopping I used to enjoy!
Thank Peace........

She's back!

The Muse, that is. At least she has made a brief appearance and I hope she'll stick around for awhile this time!
I signed on for a swap with my sculpting group to make a card for spring. We were to include at least one sculpted element along with three other media in the construction. I used paper, clay, fabric(canvas, actually) and micro-beads. The beads don't show up much in the photo unfortunately. Now I'm not much of a card maker, but I gave it my best shot. I won't show the inside so Jacque will have at least that much surprise when she receives it! I got carried away with the inside and it got pretty busy I'm afraid, but I know she'll forgive me! LOL!
