Since I'm not weaving at the moment I thought I'd share a few other items I worked on for my presentation on surface design. The bookmarks are what I made as a gift for everyone who attended. On wool felt I first did rubbings using Shiva Paintstiks, then I stamped on top of those with Lumiere paint, and finally foiled on top of that. I bonded the wool felt to cardstock to give the bookmarks a bit more body.

The second picture is of 3 black silk scarves that I played with Shiva Paintstiks on - I'm sorry the picture doesn't do them justice. I'm working on an entire series of scarves along these lines. They will all be up for sale in the near future.

So, the fun news of the day is that my handwoven peach huck lace towels are featured in an Etsy Treasury through Saturday evening. So, please go take a peek, click on my towel as well as all the other towels. The more hits they get the bigger the chance we have of making the front page of Etsy. I think this is my 4th time having an item picked out of my shop for an etsy treasury.


  1. Congratulations are in order for your Treasury picks, I am sure they are lovely, but the list had expired when I looked. The scarves are simply beautiful, don't worry about them not showing well, I love them. I love paintsticks too, they always make beautiful art!

  2. Thanks Kim! I just checked out your blog - love what you're doing! I've done a bit of appliqueing with wool felt and buttonhole stitching - it is so fun and I so enjoyed seeing some of your work. Cindie
