Notions-Drye Goods Studio Diary

Thanks for checking in. I am a fiber artist and designer. My currant emphasis is on eco printing and other wildcraft with a touch of up-cycling thrown in. You can also catch up with my wanderings on my Facebook page Drye Goods Studio.

So what in the world happened to May?

Well, first there was the hysterectomy and the rather alarming post-op infection. That  is over now so I have more time to do things other than taking a bunch of pills and watching trash TV. Here is an overview of the month.

Breakfast anyone?


My husband felt sorry for me and made this lovely birdhouse!  He also spent Monday digging about a bzillion holes in the ground to get my dye plants planted (calendula and bachelor buttons mostly)-who is this strange man and what have you done with my husband? Maybe I should get sick and pathetic more often.


This little guy stared at me through the sliding glass door for 15 minutes the other day, it seems the bird feeder was empty.


I went out to collect leaves today. We have had an inordinate amount of pine pollen this year. It was floating around in a puddle on the asphalt, leaving this fun pattern. 


I have to be the only one in North America that is excited that the knapweed is this big already. Finally! Back to making art.
Anyway, if you are in Spokane you can catch up with me next weekend at Art Fest in Coeur d'Alene Park, Browne's Addition, Spokane: June 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I have decided not to sell on the web for a bit, I need to ponder some things on that front-so check the show calendar and come on out into the real world and see me there!

What it is Supposed to Look Like in Here!


Even though I feel like I will be out of commission for a while, this looks good to me. It will be waiting for me when I get back.
