A Little Christmas Cheer

Every year the US Forestry Service puts up a Christmas display in Washington DC. Every state has a tree and 12 artists from each state are asked to contribute an ornament. This year I was delighted to be asked to contribute my art.

Yes, I have been known to do a little felting from time to time. Plus some beading! It was fun. Now I am considering buying ornaments and making some for my family. I couldn't find the ornaments at Pat Catans but you can find everything on Amazon.

Totally not what I was going to do at first but it came to me as I was going to sleep one night. All I had to do was buy some pony beads. US Forestry supplied the 5.5" plastic ornaments.

I have finished 26 Tires And just need to get a good photo of it. It's time to enter a few shows, Artist as Quiltmaker and Ohio +5 to name two good shows. Fingers crossed. And there is promise of a solo show at the Elyria Public Library next summer.

Thanks Ohio Craft Museum for asking me to do this.
