About Me:
Artist new to knitting.

I am retired from the U.S Air National Guard and from the civilian workforce, so I can devote my time to my family and arts and crafts. There still isn't enough time in each day to do all I want to do.

I taught myself to crochet and knit back in 1970, while I was at college, on weekends when I could not go home. I knitted an afghan for my mother and did very little in the years in between. I did a lot of crochet and most of it fine thread lace items. Now I crochet beads into bangles. I do a lot of off loom bead weaving and love book making, particularly journals and watercolor journals. I also love to share my knowledge of fine art and journaling, as a volunteer at my local public library. I started a program called "Open Studio" about four years ago, where I invite the public to explore the combination of fine art and journaling. I hope to get it going again this summer.

I have a wonderful husband that is so supportive of my creative endeavors. He is very creative with song writing and composing. He uses his talents to give back to God to use as a ministry in a couple of local nursing homes. I have a grown son that is also very talented in drawing and songwriting/composing. To round out my immediate family we have a very smart Maltese named Casper. He can teach any human to do his bidding, but it is our cockatiel C.C. that keeps him running in circles.

If you visit my blog at blogspot you may see examples of my fine art, journaling and some of my handmade jewelry. I hope you enjoy visiting.

Studio Makeover and ArtFire Shop

Posted on September 17, 2010 at 3:39am 8 Comments

Here are the photos of my studio makeover. I am almost finished with the major painting. I still need to paint the shelves which I hope to do today. Gee, I hope these pics aren't too big. They look monstorous in the blog editor. It has been a labor of love. I would love to have it finished that is.…

Busy, Busy, But Not Too Busy for Friends!!!

Posted on July 30, 2010 at 2:38pm 7 Comments

Dear friends,

I have been very busy with a new website, and online store, and setting up some social networking. I really am trying to get my online business off the ground so to speak. I have not been neglecting you on purpose. I have been following your activities, but just not taking the time to post or blog until things settle down.

If you want a sneak peep of my new website here is a link,…

You're Never Far From My Thoughts.

Posted on April 8, 2010 at 7:30pm 9 Comments

Dear needles and wip's,

You have not been forgotten. I yearn to hold you in my hands. You are neatly tucked away, but still in plain sight and by my side. I had to give you a rest in order to fullfill an obligation to my other craft. You are not so unalike the two of you. Both of you share the fiber arts, in a way, if I think of it in a creative manner. I still use needles and fiber, albeit tiny needles and almost microscopic fiber, at least it seems so, late at night when I try to…

Spring/Already Behind

Posted on March 29, 2010 at 12:49am 5 Comments

The first week of Spring already finished and I'm behind. My gardens aren't ready. Oak leaves still cover the beds, but that doesn't deter the Jonquils or Hyacinths. Their beauty makes the winter dress look pretty shabby.

I still haven't given Hannah, my hedgehog her face yet and she still looks malnurished for lack of stuffing. My mittens, still on needles, are unfinished, while my brain skips ahead toward future projects. I miss them all, but I must slow down (it's a…

Good morning! I'm not always an early bird, but today for some reason I'm up early and planning my day. I use chat a little, but ususally the people I want to talk to aren't on... so leaving messages is better for that! See you later! ♥s

Hi Pat- No, I didn't make the beaded pig. My sister gave him to me. As Peggy, I have been nicknamed some form of 'piggy' since birth. I so enjoyed your last blog post about your beading (and thus letting your knitting rest) that I tried to click on 'follow' so I'd be emailed whenever you posted, but it wouldn't give me that option. I thought maybe it would let me if we were friends. :) And it did. Thanks for your note. -Peggy

I'd never seen so much snow in the short amount of time, here, you had even more, we are so glad it is gone to, but due rain today and tomorrow. guess we need some now to make up for the summer. . I grew up with aunts and uncles and cousins by the dozens, and now people are so scattered. Irene

Thanks so much for the note, Pat! Doing what you suggested got me to where I needed to be! Thanks again!

Hello Pat, The dyeing will wait... gotta take care of you first! I finished one of the fingerless mitts I'm knitting for my oldest granddaughter for her 15th birthday next month. Then I spent today spinning what I thought was the end of my fiber for a shawl I'm knitting for me. But I have another spindle full that will have to wait for tomorrow.

I have the Options set, and a few of the Harmonies and Zephyrs... love them all. I bought a set of the Options for my daughter, and she loves them! I agree that they are much easier to use than the straights. Can't wait to see your blog. I'll be watching for it. Mine will have to wait at least until I finish the end of the spinning. You have a good week too!

Be sure to use nearly boiling water for your dye bath, and add some white vinegar - the vinegar helps with soaking up the dye. KoolAid works, but just regular food coloring will do the same thing I found. I did a blog back in the late summer to early fall on my two dyeing experiments. It was a lot of fun! You will love it. Never thought of using red clay mud - that is a novel idea. You can also use regular tea bags to make an ecru color - thought I haven't tried this yet. You also should soak your thread/yarn/fiber in a very hot soapy (a little dishwashing liquid) bath for at least 30 minutes before dyeing. Do not rinse the soap out, just put the thread directly into the dye bath. I think that is all of the tips I can remember. Good luck! --S
