Now that my Level 3 Stitch class is finished, the exhibitions – in person and online – completed, I am going to show my work from the class.
The last time I showed this portrait, she looked like this. I was very unhappy with the angle of the mouth and she just didn’t look right. So what to do. I made this in 2020, so the obvious answer…
Add a mask! That takes away the bad mouth and definitely relates to how I felt about the pandemic. So here’s “Covid Girl”. I guess the moral to the story is, never give up. There is always a solution!
Hello, I checked your felting book out of the library last week and was so impressed that I bought one right away. I have a yarn shop in the Sf bay area and do alot of felting, weaving, knitting and crochet but just to inspire students and customers at my shop. I have a cabin at Swan Lake, MT and will be there in a couple of weeks and wondered if we could get together to chat. I am inspired by your work. (I grew up in Great Falls and return to MT every year. I have alot of relatives there too.) I also carry yarn and fiber from the Flathead Lake area. Would love to meet you.

Thanks Andrea! I’m glad that you appreciate my book. And your day job sounds pretty fun 🙂 I would be glad to meet up with you while you’re here in Montana. Please email me at laneruthe @ gmail and we can set something up.
Terrific Ruth! Love the update to the portrait! Her hair is wonderful.
Thank you! The entire idea for the portrait started from the hair idea and morphed from there.
Oh Ruth….just brilliant….you brought a smile & chuckle to me & many more I’m sure. You say above that the hair was the main idea & starting point….well now it does really stand out as a feature. Xx
Antje, thanks, glad I could bring you a smile.
