Good morning March
Hi everyone, and thank goodness March is here, bringing us that much closer to spring! I am trying to embrace the last days of winter...with new boots, enjoying company, playing games, and felting like crazy every day.
I have decided to become my own apprentice...studying my techniques to see what changes I can make to be a better felt maker. My pieces are becoming easier to make because of this, my arms are less tired, and with some new procedures in place, I can felt AND play with Max more... my pieces are more shimmering, more organic.
I know that spring is upon us, but this winter has been so snowy and cold, it's hard to imagine that the grass will be green soon, and we'll have warm evenings and sunny hot days.
After much thinking over which shows to apply for, I decided on just one so far. The FROM Scratch INDIEpendent handmade market on May 1 in Allentown. It looks just my speed, and at this type of Indie event, I always make new friends. I'm looking forward to that.
I hope everyone is happy and healthy and hanging in there. The flowers are blooming here at my house in Lancaster, and I'm looking forward to wonderful moments as the year continues.
