Visiting Family

I am visiting my family in Spokane for a few days. It is like a winter wonderland here. This is the spectacular view from my sister and Pete's home. Yesterday morning it was spectacular the sun was shining and all the trees and plants were covered in icicles. It was hard to capture the beauty with my little camera but I hope get the idea.
They have a large barn on their property which they renovated this summer. What a fabulous space to work! Wendy now has her own a dye room and wool room. If you did not know we do all our dyeing in house. Wendy does all the wool and velvets for the website and kits with a little help from my kids Aimee and Jason.
In the other sections of the barn is a pottery room and encaustics room for my dad a huge space for jewelry and print making for Wendy and a metal shop for Pete.
Wendy has a large amount of one off pieces of wool from testing wool colors. Pete and her have been working through this huge table of wool making similar size stacks. Wouldn't these make unique scrap bags for applique!
I can't believe how wonderful this work space is now. The whole family including my kids love to come out here to create. They are always joined by their four legged friends Shumba, Morgan and Boekie.
Take care
