My trip to San Cristobal, Mexico

I had the most amazing time in San Cristobal, Mexico.  I'm still basking in the memories of everything!  This was a trip, so amazing, colorful and eye opening fun.  Amazed at how little English was spoken and how we all managed.

Well, it helped that some of the ladies knew Spanish and I did a lot of pointing and shaking my head because i did not understand, but all worked out in the end.  Colleen, did an amazing job organizing this event and our guide Cesar was very knowledgable and patient.  Which could not have been an easy task with 20 woman.

I came home with a new meaning for life, new friendships, textile and so much more.  My heart is full!

To see more pics go to my FB page, there I have made and Album entitled "San Cristobal, Mexico".

Alabama Chanin Apron

Yesterday I finished my Alabama Chanin Apron.  Made from Jersey Knit, Potato stamped with Acrylic paints and a lot of hand stitching.  It'll be fun wearing this.

January 2017

Year of the Rooster.  So I got out my paper and colors and made a Rooster.

Picked a perfect day to go to the beach and found these amazing Cairns.

Potato stamped some Jersey Knit fabric to make an Alabama Chanin Apron.

Took a four hour drive to Mammoth to take time out of life and go skiing.  And we had a blast!!

Took a warped piece plywood and turned in to a piece of art.   It's been a fun and busy January!

Today.............some different kind of fun

Today, with the help of my husband I had some different kind of fun.  Took an old pallet and turned it into a Tree.  I'm very thrilled with the out come and can't wait to find rust bits and whatnots to put on it.

Troll King

Today I put the finishing touches on my "Troll King".  I don't ever think, that I've been so hooked on a Troll.  Kind of like reading a good book and you just can't put it down.  That was the case here.  I would go to bed at night thinking how to make something.

And then the next day I'd go to work.  I'm very pleased with his out come.

And he now has a head.

It was time to do the head, so this afternoon that is exactly what I did.  I'm trying on this beard, to see if I like it.  This is where I leave it for today.  Tomorrow, ears and face coloring, some more hair, earring and who knows what else. 

Now I must think about his crown.

Photo bombed, by z Kitty Cat

Look who photo bombed my pic.  LOL  My O'mally hangs out in the studio most days and some days he has to get in on the action.  Today I made the second shoe, added a pocket and filled it with trinkets.  

I think it might be time to start thinking about making the head.  Never in all my years of Troll making was the head the last thing to be created..

It was actually kind of a unique experience, because nothing was dictating the direction.  I was free to use the sketch and my imagination.  Very freeing!
