This is the view looking up from the studio to the main level of our house. I collect old purses and display the ones that aren't too fragile. Included are ones I've made or been given. It sure beats hiding them in a drawer and this way I can enjoy them.

Blogger is playing with me again and these are sideways. Oh well, it wins this time. This is the second book I made in Margaret Applin's class at www.joggles.com It was a lot of fun to try different ways to decorate the pages and bind the two books.
Inside each page is a pocket to store treasures. The size of the pages could be altered-must try that.

I knit these all the time to fill moments when other things don't work and was on the last of my yarn when I went to Joanne's Saturday. I think it's meant that I do this, because there were two colors of the Fun Fur that I use that were on sale for 75 cents each. It takes 60 grams for a medium and the ball is 50 grams-good marketing! I also had leftovers at home and can make two of each color now.

The big dog is 70 lbs. to give you an idea of the size of the tree. The good thing about it is it didn't hit any structures but the fence which is an easier repair. We chopped and stacked the limbs, cut up the trunk. Now we have fire wood for next winter.

I transferred some of the screen printed on deli paper images to my book pages. The black image is from a Dover book.
The fish is a Thermofax screen image given me by Wendy Huhn when she taught a class for Columbia Fiberarts Guild several years ago. Fish swim through all the pages on that side of the book.
I do love online classes. They give me something to look forward to and a way to learn new things without hauling tons of stuff-never the right stuff either-and driving long ways on the freeway.
