Blog Hop!

I was invited to join this blog hop by a wonderful artist -Gurli Gregersen. Take a look at her blog and see what she has been up to lately! Beautiful watercolors, arashi shibori and so much more at  http://gurligregersen.com/2014/10/20/around-the-world-blog-hop/

Next week on November 3rd be sure to hop over to LC’s Cottage where Laura Conowitch will continue the hop with a blog hop post of her own. I love Laura’s modern way of working out traditional quilt blocks.

Here is what I have been working on lately, silk dyeing and soap making.I guess it’s all about transformation  Lye into soap and dyeing to cope. An old rest home with a new look that is really the old original house. Forward, ever forward.best11hampshirescarf1marjiewithsoap

About a year and a half ago, Peter and I moved to the country after living together in the city our entire married life. We raised three kids in Brooklyn NY and now we live in Shelburne Falls, MA. We bought an old, old house that was used as a rest home. It has about twenty rooms. Here is the most recent room renovation, just finished last week.

  1. Margie, I really love reading your blog entries! Love all the photos of art & renovation. So Inspiring! My Groovin’ on a Sunday website will be up in a day or so. Hope to do an occasional blog entry as well.

    A few more ducks to get in the row and then, turning my ship northward, too. So. VT is so close to your lovely town. We’ll be able to meet for coffee!
