I love painted buntings

I love painted buntings. We have so many beautiful birds here in the US, but not as many colorful ones like tropical parrots. This guy is definitely bringing it though.

Lavender and Baskets

I made this felted wool lavender from a kit by Wooly Pines. So cute and easy.

Inspector Jinx checking out the prototype. I’m teaching another workshop this summer at the John C. Campbell Folk School and have been busy trying out different projects for the beginner-level class. The title of the workshop is “Colorful Basketry Sampler”, so have been playing with lots of space-dyed reed.

Happy Easter!

 Happy Easter!

Sorry it takes me so long to actually write anything on these automated posts. I thought if I could link some of my Instagram posts to my blog I would actually be better at keeping content here fresh, but I that hasn't necessarily been the case.

Part of my lack of motivation is that a year ago Google/Blogger did something to the way their blogs are indexed in the search engine and it really screwed everything up. It isn't just me, it sounds like from reading the message boards that it adversely affected everyone. I went from my posts having 300 to 600 readers to now only 30-60 (if I am lucky). While I am not doing this just to have a big following, it is not very motivational to spend hours photographing baskets, editing them, writing about them, etc., only to have a hand-full of people even see them.

Anyway, thanks for hanging in there with me. I will keep plugging away.

Happy weaving,
