Header/Banner, whatever they're called, don't you love my new one???? Made by my dear friend, Linda Fleming http://customblogheadersandbanners.blogspot.com/ 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!

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!
