My daughter and I recently went to a full day women’s retreat geared toward socializing, painting rocks, and playing games. Held outdoors in one of Oregon’s beautiful national parks we had fun hanging out in the pavilion, eating snacks, and getting to know each other better.
I got a little carried away and ended up with a flamboyant woman in a bikini as my rock painting project. Once she was created, she attracted a muscle bound male who just had to show off his muscles for her.
I have an idea to decorate the horses and use dreadlocks that are decorated to clip onto their tails and manes to make them look dressed up. I am thinking about riding in a parade or going to the park to let children pet them and give the children rides. I want to make the experience fantastical for the children; something they will remember for the rest of their lives as magical and beautiful.
I am thinking of decorating these with light brown and glittery accents.
After building the half wall and fitting in my work table, I realized the wall was in my way! I took it out, and built up the beam above so I could also take out the center support post in the middle of my studio, which was in my way also.
I like this so much better, and it only took some thinking to figure our how to arrange my shelves so there is no loss of shelf space.
After removing the divider wall I had put in previously, and rearranging my supplies, I was ready for the first felting workshop in my new studio. With a heater, electricity, hot and cold running water and a microwave, we had all the conveniences of being in the house.
It was a pleasure meeting Diane and she worked on a beautiful merino wool and silk scarf using the soft felting technique. The little locks of wool she added along the edges were from a different type of sheep I dyed last season..
