From Sheris Studio .
I will be back in school soon
enough. Summer always goes so fast, but I was
able to do most everything on my list; such as, spend time in the sun reading, get Pronto
Pups (corn dogs) and ice cream at the local stand (Dairy
Treat if you are ever in Grand Haven, Michigan), plus eat at a few of our favorite
summer hot spots. My husband and I even
traveled again on the Badger, a coal ferry ship across
I went antiquing with one basket girlfriend, attended a daughters wedding of another and traveled to a Scrapbook Convention with yet another. I enjoyed going junking (garage sales) and to the Flea Market on Wednesdays. I went to visit my sister; Kathys new Quilt Shop in New Era, MI. (www.fabricquiltscissors.com) and even went out to lunch several times with my Mom. I took my granddaughter, Katelynn to the zoo and Back to School shopping. I framed Artwork for the permanent Gallery Collection at the High School where I teach and bought a 12 outdoor sculpture for the front entry with wonderful donations. I did some weaving and crafting at workshopsall of which was truly inspiring.
yard looks very different as we were only going to take out 2 trees; we were growing moss
in the back yard and on the roof, but ended up taking out about 42! Now you see our house
from the road. A well and underground sprinkling was put in. I have now been planting
sun flowers and redoing all my plants. I felt so excited as I worked one night
and saw several lightening bugs a few nights in a row. This really brought me
back to my childhood days of trying to catch these bugs; since we had such a hot summer,
they were out flying about.
So yes, this Summer has flown by and I
have enjoyed the moments. Now this Issue will get you ready for Fall weavings.
My Apple for the Teacher is a fun challenge in shaping your basket. Woven in natural and then tossed into a red dye pot, this basket can sit or hang on your door or wall. A stem, leaves, and raffia is added to complete this Back to School basket for kids treats or your favorite Teachers desk.
My Southwest Rabbit Trail is a sturdy basket with a foot added on the base and a grapevine lashed to the rim. Southwestern colors are twined in the middle and leather rabbits and beads are tied with waxed linen as accents all around the sides.
My Snake Charmer is a unique Gourd that was selected to wood burn design patterns of a black diamond snake. Taking my Granddaughter to the zoo inspired me to complete this project. Katelynn loves snakes and even petted a real snake out of its case! Although snakes are not my favorite of Gods creatures, this was a fun learning experience.
