Scarab update

The weaving of the woven scarab is almost done. I hope to complete the piece in the coming week. I was really excited by the naalbinding technique - I'm going to add a neckpiece done in naalbinding plus an outline of the entire piece in naalbinding. The design has changed a bit since I started - you'll see.

I'll have a few new pieces to post on my website. I'll let you know when the new pieces are up on line.

I had a lot of problems with my hands during my 3 weeks of classes (starting the last 2 weeks of August). I have a referral to some University of Florida therapists who specialize in hand therapy. I'm sure the exercises will be valuable - I'll report on what I learn.

Not a lot of progress

I haven't made a lot of progress on this piece since returning from Wm. Holland and I have another week of classes at Wildacres coming up. These classes will involve totally different techniques. I'm looking forward to it - this will be my first time at Wildacres. Anyway, here's the promised shot of the weaving.

I'm back

I've done a bit more on the scarab weaving since returning home. I'll post a photo later today. Mostly, I've been sorting things out and getting my workbench set up again.
