Well, after wreaking havoc here for a few weeks, daughter Lisa is now winging her way back to the Bahamas but not before infecting her mother with a new passion- making bowls from clothes line cord! She is experimenting with different shapes and sizes and we came back from Halifax yesterday with about 5 miles of the stuff!
Here's a pic of some of the newest items.
This picture features three of the bowls along with two small paintings Vickie recently finished.
Also in the picture are the following:
Daughter Sandra's newest Mitchell Brook creations-a "Resatchel"- the perfect tote for you and the environment. Totally made from beautiful recycled fabric, it folds small enough to take anywhere but is large enough to hold all your stuff. She is also making the personalized leather coffee cup holder seen in the lower right hand corner. They are really something to see!
Also in the photo is a sterling silver ring I made using a piece of mookaite, a jasper from Australia, and a sampling of Vickie's latest knitting patterns.
The shop has also been totally restocked with Lisa's latest hand dyed yarn so if your travels take you to "The Neck" come by and say hi and pick up your free tumbled rock.
And if you have a few minutes, I'll show you what a professional lapidary shop looks like.
