- Fleur de Lis, by Laura Perin
This is a Cyberclass I’ve been doing with Laura Perin called Fleur de Lis. All the stitches are composite, you put down layer after layer. It reminds me of a medieval illuminated manuscript and has been tremendous fun to stitch. It’s also been the proof of concept for my ability to stitch after my cataract surgery!
Today I received a mailing from a local arts center and they listed some new classes, including “Introductory Jewelry-Making for Seniors (60+).”
Whoa, my 60th is next week. Am I a senior already?
I did some snow-dyeing this weekend, and here are the results:
I was somewhat disappointed by the amount of undyed fabric this time, but perhaps this is a good thing in disguise. I’m already thinking of what I might do to add interest to the pieces, rather than hoarding them as is — always a danger if the piece turns out TOO good.
I’ve documented my process in case you’re interested.

I found this video by Ken Robinson about our educational system really interesting. Since I don’t have children in school, I’ve felt kind of unqualified to comment on the goings-on surrounding educational “reform” over the past few years. But of course, I was once a student!
