Creating color.

This was a good week for finishing my super secret project.  I dyed three beautiful pieces of wool with what I call the Primary Dye Job.  It’s a succession of dyeing the wool first blue, then red, and then yellow.  You end up with an amazing piece of wool with not only the primary colors, but also the secondary colors.  What a fun way to dye.  I have posted a photo of the back of my project.

Also this week was the opening of an art show at the Perry County Council of the Arts Gallery in Newport PA.  The theme is “Off the Page”, featuring pieces inspired by books, poetry and other writings.  I entered two of my Aesop Fables pieces: The Fox and the Crow and The Fox and the Grapes.  The opening reception was on Friday night and a nice sized group of interested people showed up.

I’m saving the binding of my Snow Angel rug to do at the Woolwrights Hook-In next month. This hook-in is lots of fun and such a busy day filled with seeing friends, networking and shopping.  I like taking something that doesn’t require much thinking or the lugging of lots of equipment, so binding a rug is perfect.

My home is always filled with hearts, and below are some photos of them in honor of St. Valentine’s Day tomorrow.  I “heart” hearts!

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the heart of my home.
