"Way down below the ocean"

it has been such a long time since posting, but perhaps I have finally learned how to download photos onto my blog from my will be so much simpler that way...and so here is my first try at this...and here are some of my major obsessions this spring....the first is a stool which is for a fundraising auction for Grandmothers for Grandmothers
In July on our island they will auction off many chairs and stools which people have donated and others have volunteers their artwork, and thanks to a  great group of dedicated grandmothers they raise a substantial amount to send to the Stephen Lewis thus my stool....very barnacle  and underwater look and shibori felted the top and then did felting on the rungs etc....very fun and now the page won't s roll, so briefly my new blankets one mushroom indigo dyed..very light and airy
And who knew I would become weaving nine blankets later and I am trying to detAch and move into gourds again .....wish me luck so very hard to leave soft fibers and all that color butI do  love gourds ...and then felting dyeing eco printing.....please hold me is too fun...
