Oh, the Places I Go!

Scarlett Runner Band
I’m in catch-up mode again with my photos. I went to Altu’s on Saturday to hear Scarlet Runner String Band Play. They did a great job. Here’s a close up of the guys playing.

Sunday I went to Working Women Artists. The project of the month was gourd art. Oh, my! I had no idea. You can carve them, dye them, color in other ways, drill holes in the edges for added basketweaving (or crochet/knit though nobody did that). Some of the patterning added was wonderfully detailed. I actually sat and knitted (I’m really trying to finish a lot of my promises so I can knit for myself again) but watching was a feast for the eyes. Other folks took photos, but I don’t have any of my own.

felt projectsMonday (before my computer classes in Haslett) I taught a wet-felting class at Rae’s. This was a wonderful thing, where Betsy and Erin wrote me an email asking for a class. We found a day when we all 3 were available, and then I called Rae (she was geographically in the right neck o’the woods for me to teach and then pop over to Haslett and teach my night classes). Rae had room in her classroom so we made it happen.

I will do this for any two or more students wanting a particular class… let me know how many are guaranteed and what class you want, I’ll find the most appropriate location for a classroom and we’ll make it happen.

Photos: 1) Scarlet Runner String Band at Altu’s. 2) Betsy and Erin’s feltmaking projects. They first made small mug-rug type multicolored pieces. Then they made small felt balls, followed by felt-covered Orangina drink bottles, and finished with some alpaca-blend fiber (the darker honey colored items) where we made little pouches out of felt.
