Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere pumpkins! The needle felted pumpkin workshop happened today at the Beehive Wool Shop, and I think a good time was had by all. I was able to take pictures of the table before class, but unfortunately I forgot to charge my phone (a common occurrence), so I wasn’t able to take pictures of some of the finished pumpkins.

I was so impressed what people produced – each pumpkin was unique and dear and full of personality! Below is a picture of one of my pumpkins looking a little like it’s going to pounce on the chocolate pumpkin.

Now it’s time to start preparing for the Christmas ornament workshop!

It’s taken many years, but I have finally created a blog/website… Woohoo! For ages people have been asking if I had one and suggesting (strongly) that it would be a good idea. It took me a while to come around, but here I am. Hello there!
To find out all about me and what I do, please go to my “About” page… You may want to have a bit of time on your hands… I was wordy.
When I first began thinking about starting this blog, I spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out the purpose of it. The reasons I came up with were guilt and shame. Stay with me – I’m using guilt and shame in a positive way… I think it’s possible!
I am not always the most motivated of people. While at work, my mind races with thoughts of projects that I’ll start that evening. When I get home from work, I’m no longer excited to start working on anything except how cozy I can get on my recliner with a warm blanket and my lovely (albeit occasionally terrifying) cat on my lap (her name is Smudge, Princess of Darkness – I’m sure you’ll hear more about her in future posts).
To my way of thinking, to keep this blog interesting and relevant, I need to have new ideas and projects to discuss, and then I need to be able to show off completed work… If I don’t, ahhhh, the guilt and the shame. See… It all makes sense now!
Do other artists and crafters have this problem or are you all motivated all the time?
