Long time away from the blog

It has been a long time away from my blog. Life throws curve balls at you now and then and they can suck the creativity right out of you. It has been good to have time to just think about what I want to do and to re-evaluate my priorities when it comes to making art. I have been working more with my digital and photographic art instead of my fiber art or sewing. Trying out some of the online services that will print your art on various things--Gel-A-Skins, Zazzle and Cafe Press, and don't let me forget Spoonflower.  Now I am trying to get back into my fiber work. I am taking a great online class from Glennis Dolce and Richard Carbin on "Indigo Mandalas."  It has been a great motivator to get me back to indigo. No indigo planted this year. We have covered the bed and are letting it rest. I am working on getting a natural fermented vat going and my next posts will record the steps for that.

Spring is pushing its first blooms up from the warming earth.
