I Love to work with Fiber and Love Upcycling / Recycling. I consider myself an Artist, I have the soul of one anyway...I have a huge compulsion to shop in Thrift stores and bring home large bags of old coats, wool sweaters, fabrics and Vintage Treasures. The colors and patterns thrill me. Once home I am faced with endless possibilities! Where to begin?

First Student arrives tomorrow morning!
Ok, so I am tired of being alone in my love for Penny Rugs around here....I placed an ad on Kijiji offering to teach not knowing what to expect. Nobody seems to know what a Penny Rug is. I was pleasantly surprised to recive an immediate response from a very nice lady who wanted to learn the craft. She came over for an initial Hi, how are you. She is coming over tomorrow morning for her first lesson. I have put together a small kit to get her started. Making a small rug for use as a hot pad or candle mat, 7 pennies in total with a background and backing. I haven't really taught any crafts since I was a Brownie leader. She seems to be quited excited to get going, so am I!
