Yes, I know. I am adorable. It just happened that way. Tobee kept needle felting along determined to make something of me and here I am, in my glory, ready for Springtime, maybe for Laurie or to the Etsy shop I go!

i sent this pin onto my two young friends i hope to see again sometime soon!
interview with a pin:
ME: Hi Pin! You are so cute. What can you tell us about yourself?
Squirrel Pin: Well, first off thanks for the interview. Second, I am so cute I can hardly get over myself. Third, great going on how you used recycled cereal box cardboard using your kewl colored pencil techniques and glazing so I am like a piece of stained glass when propped next to a window.
Me: You are so welcome! Thank YOU.

My studio is in newburyport ~ i teach piano, guitar and fiddle and use a looper recording device to burn cds right there - especially when a student is ready to write something on the spot or put down a piece they have been working on for weeks or months or a year.
My studio hours run Tues - Saturday.

caution, if you let your fluff be over fluffly and out of control you might pick up some dust you are not happy with. better to keep your fluff in fluffly awareness and walk intentionally with joy.

i am loving the way my work has been coming together for me. finally i am making sense of all the sketches that come to me and then how to combine them in a way with paint on a specially treated secret wood surface...chugging along.

these were my very first brood of chickens. i put in an order for 12 and got a great mixed batch; rhode islands red, a black chicken, a bunch of whites, some black and white and a beautiful rooster.
i kept them in the dining room that fall and winter, first in a big aquarium and then in a refrigerator wooden crate i fixed up with a hinged door so they could sit on the edge during the day. Once they were big enough i kept them on the enclosed front porch and they would look at me through the window.
