New tools changing the shape of my creations. Drilling holes in rocks, and freezing my hands off.
Full moon over the desert. #naturallydyed moonscape with #blackwalnut #sandalwood and #pecan dyed fibers.
Coffee & spinning this morning, hoping the warm New Mexico sun comes out from the clouds long enough to heat up my studio. 🌞
I’ve always been a rock collector. On all my travels, whether living out of a backpack, minivan or house, I’ve gathered special rocks. I can’t help it….I have been known to carry them home on a run or backpacking trip. This piece of #selenite was found here in our local mountains and I am finally able to use it as adornment thanks to the newest tool in my life. Woohoo! After years of pondering, we got an attachment for a drill press that allows me to drill holes into stone. I am SO excited to use these precious treasures I’ve found to create magical arrangements to be worn.

Last step in finishing my #handbound #book . Pondering how I can incorporate these new things I learned into clothing and adornment…..
Today I took a #bookbinding class with the wonderful Priscilla Spitler here in #truthorconsequences #newmexico 🌞 Our community is so lucky to have here here. Photos of the finished #handbound book coming tomorrow
The first weaving of 2019 is being woven with a weft of naturally dyed raw silk and will be available for sale via random draw.
Love 💚 Love 💚 Love beyond imagination. Yesterday was my first day back at the loom in this new year. I’m taking it slowly, getting to know myself again.
