This is my most recent project. I have a patient that is a rock hound and he has been bringing me a few treasures when he comes in. I promised him I would make something special to thank him. It was to be a bracelet but ended as a necklace. Sometimes things take shape on their own. Thank you James.

In 2005 I attended Art and Soul, it is an art retreat in Portland, Oregon. When I was trying to decide what classes I wanted to take I came upon a class called SoulCollage. Well altered art has always been something really special to me. Whenever I would create a page, I would look for things that meant or held special thoughts to me. After taking the SoulCollage workshop, I wanted to share this speicial intuitive process with everyone. It was something I thought my cancer patient may be able to use for self exploration, creativity, relaxation. I am now able to go to a Facilitator training program, so I can actually implement this to our cancer support groups. I am really excited about this and just wanted to share this information with anyone that reads my blog. If your interested check out Seena Frost's web, www.soulcollage.com.

My sister called me the other day wanted to know if I had ever heard of Kanzashi. Well, I had not, but she said the recent Woman's Day magazine had an article in it that was pretty neat. I'm always looking for a challenge. So I googled and collected some information on Kanzashi. Here is my first try. Now the challenge is, what will I use it in?

Just to let everyone know I am still alive and well. Been busy with work and learning to knit. Well, I will post a picture of the vest when completed, however I quess it will hang in my craftroom because I think it will fit two people!!!! Tonight I am taking a soldering class, yeh. A few years ago took a Sally Jean class, but didn't do much with what I learned. But now is the time. Hope all is well, and happy.

Isn't this gorgeous? I am sooo proud of this bracelet. I was fortunate to be able to attend the Bead and Button Show in Wisconsin this year. What fun. I met my really good friend Arlene (great beader) and was able to see some great beading artists.
This bracelet was Designed by Kimberly Stathis (KJS Designs), I took two of her classes what a great teacher. Can't wait to meet up with her again. I will list her website so you all can look at what she has to offer. Thanks Kim.
The second bracelet is almost finished and will post pictures as soon as it is finished.

I work at the Charleston Cancer Center, administering chemotherapy agents to patients. Our chemo room is glass on one entire wall, that over looks a pond. Well this pond has a gator or two? This gator entertains our patients now since it has been getting warmer. He comes out swims around regularly. The girls have told me that a few years ago he (or she) has even walked up to the front door. I got a good picture of him resting on a small plat form. Enjoy I'll send more when he is sun bathing.

I took a class yesterday at the local bead shop Charleston Bead Company. It was a fun class, I always find I learn something new at any class I take. This bracelet is stitched with the peyote stitch throughout, you just change the size of beads to create the Bumps in the Road. It works up pretty fast, if your not spending most of your time tearing your mistakes out. Seems like I spend more time tearing things out regardless if I'm working on a quilt or beading. Oh well, my husband saids it keeps me out of the bars!!!

This is my first attempt with brazilian embroidery. It was a really fun project. I have her adorned with crystals and pearls. If you click on the picture, there is some really nice detail of the stitches used. I hope you enjoy her.
