After six days and five nights, I found Pretty Boy!!  Lots of people in the Washington area were looking, lots of helpful calls, I so appreciate all their help.  He was hiding out around the Washington Pond area, and with all the rain we have had this past week he was pretty sad looking. 
A warm bath, warm blow dryer and a good meal, he is recovering.  I love a happy ending, don't you?

It's Been a Long Time

My last post was almost a year ago and I have decided to give it another go, this time with a more consistent approach.  In my defense, much has happened in the past year, not the least being our recent  move to Newburgh, Maine, which is in the Bangor area.  Life happens to everyone, not just me, so I'll move forward!  I have been busy this past year and I have posted some of the projects I have worked on.

 A batch of mittens made from recycled sweaters.  Delivered and sold to Archipelago last fall/winter

 Playing with recycled plastic bags.  I first laminated, then cut, then did some weaving to create this bag.  Not great, but I will continue to experiment.
This is one of my latest pieces, entitled Spring.  The beadwork actually spells Spring in braille. I am not finished with the quilting yet, trying to decide what next.
