I am seriously behind on the Blog posts but I will catch up over time. I took the summer off and caught up on my home projects, visitors, one trip and some relaxation time.

Quail's Nest Studio Week - June 29th to Jul 3rd

Once again, our Guild booked a week at the Quail's Nest Studio for some intensive workshops and various personal projects.  It is a great opportunity to share knowledge and get in some visiting as members, guests or visitors drop in. I was there on Wed only to catch up and see the many dye projects in progress, a continuation from Tue! Here's a quick look into the dyeing process and the results.
