We had a beautiful snowfall over the weekend, my husband and I took a walk through our state park where we take the grand kids camping every summer. The snow gave the park a magical look, it was quiet and peaceful, nothing like in the summer when it's full of life with campers.
Having grown up with a creek in our backyard and one in the woods behind our house, it's one of my favorite places to walk. We followed this creek as far as we could.
The hillside was heavy with snow.
This time I didn't use as many colors on each piece, the first was black cherry with eggplant. The second was eggplant with orange, which gave brown tones when the colors mixed.
And the third was my dye rag that in the end I shoved it in a cup and poured the left over bright orange and black cherry dyes on it.
We visited our friends, Lou who has Native American in his heritage is a wonderful beader and spends many hours on the craft. Theses are a few of his pieces. This top picture is a walking stick with a hand carved eagle head (from a deer antler) at the top.
Laying on this table are an assortment of dance sticks and drum sticks he's beaded.
This is his work table with a staff in progress. I like how his wife sewed a covering with pockets along the sides.
