    1. Hello Catherine. I read somewhere about a man who paints using spiders webs in his pictures he somehow picks them up and puts them on his paper - what a wonderful thought.

  10. Dear Betty - my first visit to your lovely blog has been a real treat. Your silk paintings are so beautiful. I too live in a woods and enjoy nature's gifts. Took time to check out your silk tutorial. You make it look easy but I am sure it is not. Thanks for sharing your art. Have a great day.

  11. Hiya Betty, you asked how much fibre it takes to make a large piece of felt, well I weighed mine for you at it was less than 400grms. You don't use very much, the skill is in teasing it out into fine whispy strands. Just don't work in front of an open window, lol.
