New Muse in Town

I don't know her name but she makes me want to paint and hum....
Her wing span is 15" and she stands 25" tall.

She flew into town on resin wings just in time for Art and Soul.

The Inventor

Reginald Q. Wickham born to British parents in India was making great strides with the parallel circuit, he heard of Edison’s achievements with the incandescent electric light. But when he learned that Edison had overtaken him in the improvement of the dynamo he was utterly shattered. This is when he put on his light bulb hat and dedicated his live to time travel.
Reginald (Reggie to us who know him) stands on an 1886 cigar box. Gears, gauges, wires and an old light bulb help activate the magic ball he is holding. If it ever starts to spin Reggie will be off to the future, maybe.
Little known fact: Reggie coined the phrase "Damn the Dynamo"

I’m having fun getting ready for my crow class at Art and Soul. These are little bags made of clothpaper to hold all the goodies we will be using. I started out with the idea of making a plain canvas bag….but this is so much more fun.

Fiddling and Knitting

If some how you get a chance to see this show with Topol maybe in another city go he is so good, I think I'm in love. His voice you could listen to forever. The set was very nice and fascinating how they interchanged it all.

Knitting class is over but I think I'm hooked.

Just being around all the color and texture in a yarn shop is worth it.

The class laid out their handy work.

My sister Becky's beautiful scarf, she will still drop the stitches and then the real magic happens.

My scarf, knit 5, purl 5, add color and texture, drop a stitch and it makes its own fringe. OK now to remember it all.....
