Wheels and Rugs

This week we had a few more fiber artists - Val Fiddler and Pearl - working on spinning wheels and doing traditional rug hooking. Deb brought in an antique spinning wheel that had been in her family for ages for Val to look at.

Pearl uses very thin strips of cloth to make her pieces. This one will be a valance done in earth tones.

Laurie's wood spirit got her barefoot sandals this week. Check out the cute little toes!

And Laurie showed us what she has in mind for wings. They'll be floral wire between layers of wool and other small fiber bits.

To celebrate my own Excellent March (everyone needs to celebrate right?!) Cindy made me a strawberry shortcake. Now there's a work of art!


  1. It was a really fun way to spend the afternoon. And interesting to see everyones projects. The cake was delicious, thanks Cindy!
    Hope I can fit in some more Tuesdays With Laurie!

  2. Great work Elaine! It's great watching Lauries doll change and even more details!
