Troops Headed East

I’m headed East toward Rhinebeck, in the car typing this as the miles fly by. It takes two solid days of driving to get from Minnesota to Rhinebeck, New York and I’m fortunate to have many drivers on this trip this year. So, here I…

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

  It’s been a bit since I’ve written, so I thought I’d post a short hello and studio goings on, lest you think I’ve fallen into a bucket full of clay. Last weekend I was able to attend the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in…

Here’s a little preview of today’s update. It will be a mug fest. Lots of ready to ship mugs in a variety of designs. While there are a few one of a kind mugs and cups, I’ve made a small series of some of the more popular designs to help more people get the piece they’re hoping for!

A rest, of sorts 

I’m not currently in the studio, instead I’m taking a rest, of sorts. I’m finally fulfilling a long time dream to participate in the Des Moines Register Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa, but known as RAGBRAI.  It’s a phenomenal thing to be one of 10,000…

I’m a sucker for a good deadline. Always pulling term papers out in the final hours before a due date or tweaking a project with moments to spare, I like the energy of sucking the marrow of every second I have, it’s almost better than…

Bike buttons!
Bike buttons!

I’m working on another collaboration, this time featuring the ever popular bike button. Here’s a  peek at some of the colors that will be available in the kit, online, and at my booth in California at Stitches West. I’m a sucker for a good rainbow. Maybe my next sweater should have one of every color?

  One of the surprising benefits of my summer arm injury has been a refocusing of my creative process. It was initially immensely frustrating to cope with being unable to make and carve pots. I had to embrace other ways of creating the pattern and…
