This is my new tractor. It was my dad's tractor for many years and now I will have it. I always wanted it. It runs like a top from what I hear.
I was happy to see the sun shine for a couple days in the last few weeks (after the snow fall). I took advantage of some nice days to make three Icelandic felt pelts and a large Dalesbred fleece I picked out at the class I taught in Maryland last month.
In late September I taught my felt pelt class again for Sherry Tenney in Maryland.
It's always fun to share the magic of felt pelts and traveling is a great way to meet some very interesting people.
After returning home, I did three respite sessions with area seniors and their helpers through an East Central Regional Arts Council grant written by Lakes and Pines Community Action Council.
Next are four sessions with Head Start kids, 3-5 years old.I'm adjusting the project after the first session proved to be too much for the kids and the teacher. :-) Hopefully by starting out with some pre-felts, the project will match their attention spans better.
Oh, there is still room in the Raw Felted Fleece Chair Pad or Pillow Top class I am teaching at the Textile Center in Minneapolis on November 9th. Here's a link to sign up if you're interested. https://textilecentermn.org/product/raw-felted-fleece/ I have lots of Cheviot fleeces that will make for some nice cushions, but students can bring their own raw fleece too.
Have a great week everyone!
