It is such a difference working with natural wool and cushing dyes, then poof! beautiful colors of soft sexy wool!  Easy to get overload as I look at the recipes and try to make a choice of what next!

I wish I could match Eddie's beautiful color combos!

This is a very important event for Barry, his book published, after years of work and tears.  The fictionalized story of a teen living in Iron Mountain Mi who, with a school friend, wins an award for wilderness camping survival. They journey to Ely MN and work as assistant guides at an outfitter for part of the summer, and the best part of all is camping with their teacher by end of summer out in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

life in stanley year one

well, it's been a year almost. and we are surviving in stanley wi, learning life in a little farming town has many blessings.
still doing some shows with Barry's baskets, and I'm learning the art of hand dyeing wool fabric. still selling my pottery that I had left on my etsy shop and adding wool listings too.
we have lovely neighbors, quiet street, (no more state hwy out our door) and a tidy little cottage with a new furnace/ac and many updates that we had put in prior to moving. we are blessed. the town has things like a rodeo with bucking broncos and cowboys, a fun library and a great pizza place.
stay tuned for more .......

New town, but still wonderful pottery!

After 20 years at our studio outside of Saint Germain, we had an opportunity too good to turn down. So now my pottery is only available at

It's been a frantic last 2 months, so now we continue to unpack into a small cottage in Stanley WI. And learn to live in a friendly town with neighbors who love the area. Now we live on a quiet street rather than a busy highway. We still will be doing a few art and craft shows, but not selling out of our home studio.

I will soon start posting some pictures of our new cottage and the town.
