I am just starting building my studio in a new room starting from scratch take a peek
My Happiness is one of the earliest recorded songs from Elvis in 1953. Recorded with just his guitar and voice in the key of C, My Happiness gives us a glimpse of his greatness to come.
For me however my happiness has come to mean a plethora of paints, piles of fabric, mounds of fibers, yards & yards of yarns, beads, threads, silks, gauze, metallics…Need I say more?
Some of you know my son was gravely ill with advanced cancer. After a short courageous battle, Sean passed away on October 25, 2014

One of my quilting groups theme is “An Elvis Presley Song” but which one? The most recorded voice in history ranging over several decades – how to choose?
I’m looking at “In the Ghetto” being a Chicagoan, we have terrible discrimination in our city.
Or perhaps “All Shook Up” but that’s such a well-known song. Hmm… Blue Suede Shoes? I used to have a pair – should have saved the leather.
We shall see…
Raw silk from a pack of silk hankies was spun into two separate single ply yarns. Then I spun the two single ply yarns onto a core yarn of orange/brown sari silk yarn. Making it thick & thin is easy just push the yarn toward the spindle to make thicker portions or even coils and balls.
Here it is. Now that’s better! I just love the messy texture.
Just bought an inexpensive drop spindle. It’s not as easy as the YouTube video’s make it look! Here is my first try, pretty lame but it’s a start.
