Good morning! This week I have made progress on several fronts. I have signed up for a pottery class at www.claygroundonline.com in Elllicott City, MD. I am excited to try my hand at the wheel, which I have not done in a long time. I also got basket reeds in the mail, so I can make a reed basket. I will go to a friend’s house soon and gather berry brambles to dry for a different look. Everything I have read says that willow is hard to work with because it is physically demanding, so I will try some more pliable materials first, to practice techniques. Later today I will start my first basket, so updates soon on that. Third, I have been getting lots of fun packages in the mail to assemble all of the materials for HRM Adelhait’s (mka Ash Terrell) new trossfrau dress, which we have decided to call the phoenix dress. I am uber excited to get started on this fun project! She is so fun and encouraging, and making clothes for her will satisfy my need to sew while I am taking a break from making my own clothes. I have lost a lot of weight, but I am only about 60% to goal, so new clothes now would be something of a waste 🙂 Look for new folders for each project, with pictures etc, for documentation images and process images.
