Being Creative in Idaho
Lincoln fleece that had been in my attic and I'm currently spinning that into a thick singles that will be dyed.
BFL top in bright red, orange and yellow.
Back to tapestry weaving, I tried a couple of small samples at first and I simply sewed the ends to finish these samples.
Then I decided to play with it a bit-
On another day I pulled out my textile paints to recreate some Idaho scenery from one day of walking my dogs.
I think that I'll cut these apart to maybe create embroidered textile postcards. I carved a potato stamp to recreate the pod.
There's something quite inspiring about going on walks here in Idaho, and being able to explore the beauty of an Idaho winter.
Thanks for those of you who have helped me through the past several months after I tore my meniscus in my right knee while hiking with my dogs in late October. Thanks for letting me whine on about my injury and not being able to cycle/ski! Sometimes it's rather easy to drone on about health issues, so another huge thanks for listening. Since being injured I've learned to not take good health for granted, that's for sure. Thanks, too, for good doctors who listen to you when you say that you're hurting and they actually do something about making it better-caring medical people are truly a blessing! I have a surgery date for next Tuesday, so hopefully this injury will be fixed and I'll be able to get back to doing most of the things that I love. Not skiing this year, but there's always next year to dream of....
