This aspen tree is one of my “littles.” Painted on blue paper with acrylics, it is just 2 1/2″ x 2″.
On the right is a mural I did for the City of Aurora, Indiana. They wanted “Trades of the1800′s.” Because I am a hand spinner myself, I chose to paint a spinster.
This is my first oil painting in many years. It was fun experimenting! This painting is 8 inches by 10 inches.
This is one of my little pictures, just 2 1/2 inches by 2 inches. It is done with pen and colored pencil and will go on a gift tag.
Three necklaces I made with seed beads. The long black one has approximately 17,000 beads in it–each one strung by hand.
I made this 6 foot circular shawl from wool I spun myself on tiny drop spindles. Yes, I have a spinning wheel, but sometimes I like to use an older method to spin. Besides, with the small drop spindles, I can spin in the car while Ron drives! It took me almost a year to spin the wool and knit the shawl. The thread is very fine.
Below you can see two drop spindles. The bigger one is a Turkish spindle and is about the size of most drop spindles. The smaller one I am holding is the one I used to spin the wool for this shawl.
This is my “Crazy Scarf.” I had a lot of yarn scraps and decided to use them. I wove this on one of my little ridged heddle looms rather than one of my floor looms. I had no idea how it would turn out, but I figured, it’s just scrap yarn, anyway. But I like it!
