Beautiful Smocked Christmas ornaments
Christmas and New Years have come and gone, and we all had a delightful time at the Ricketts' household. Today, all three kiddos are back at work, and I'm back to the drawing board. Literally. I emailed in a magazine proposal, and will be working on a couple more after lunch.
In the meantime, I wanted to share these snaps with you that I took at the Minneapolis Weavers' Guild library in November. What a wonderful resource for weavers, knitters and any textile artist! They are located in a large building and have a full shop, workshop, and library. Workshop space is available for rent, and the library is an actual lending library for members. It is the largest textile lending library in the States! I was able to do some research there for a couple articles.
In the corner was a wonderfully decorated tree. I took these photos of individual ornaments, as I had just recently interviewed a smocker, several quilters, and even a button crafter on my cable TV show In the Loop with Laura.
