Last post - I am moving to a new blog!

This is my last post on this blog. I am starting a new blog that will still have posts on my fiber interests (knitting and spinning) but will also include my other art interests (encaustic, collage, drawing, painting) and photos from my daily life and travels. It will be my all purpose blog where I can focus my energies.

You will find it at: Dreaming in Orange

My blog at Constant Bliss, is nearly complete. As I mentioned previously, I have been posting daily from four workshops that comprise the Wealthcare Program from Artella. The last one will end tomorrow. I will keep that blog alive indefinitely, so that you may use the programs at any time. The four programs: Gratitude Garland, Accounting Your Blessings, Miracle Soup, and Creative Manifestival, contain thought provoking questions and fun art exercises to help you to consciously create a life that you love. Following any, or all, of these programs will bring more joy into your life and will help you to manifest your dreams and desires.

I will also be keeping up my blog for my drawing class. It is a log of my work for the class. You can follow it here.

Peace and happiness,

Montpelier Sheep and Wool Festival

Yesterday I went to the Montpelier Sheep and Wool Festival in Virginia with my friends, Kim, Susan, Joyce, Connie, and Arnetta.

Here is a photo of the sheep herding.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day - cool in the morning, the sun shining and a cool breeze.

I am glad to say that I stuck to my budget and only bought a little fiber and some indigo dye. I have some plans to do some dyeing and will detail it in this blog in the near future.

Here are the fiber pics: 9.7 ounces of orange and red merino/bamboo/nylon fiber from the Hot Flash Fiber Company; 4 ounces of blue/yellow BFL from Pocket Meadow Farm; and 4 ounces of merino/silk plus 30 yards of matching dyed silk ribbon from River's Edge Fiber Arts. Enjoy the colors.
