Learning new skills . . . enjoying the tried and true

I am trying to combine some newly acquired and admittedly shaky tech skills with my more familiar and comfortable fiber techniques as I set up my shop on Etsy. I have reached a point where I am excited to get some of my work out there for you all to see. The holiday "JOY" pin is an example from my WIORD work, free formed wire words and quotes. These hand shaped wire words look eerily like my handwriting!

This log cabin runner was one of the first woven pieces I listed for sale. I love the colors and the interplay of the patterning. My shop is listed under the name KristiePeters with the shop title Fringe Fiber. I am just starting to get a variety of my work listed. I hope you will check out my shop soon and let me know what you think.

This is one of my WIORD word combos, "peace. . . love. . .hope". It is hanging in my work cube and it makes me feel good to look up and read it. More of these will be listed in my shop soon, too.

I am excited and nervous and a little intimidated by this new venture. It has been a long time since I have put my work out there for sale. But at the same time it feels like a good stretch and it has set my mind going in all kinds of new directions.

I look forward to sharing more. . . . . . . . . thanks for watching and reading.
