Dotted tree

[Karen Barbé · Textile designer · Dotted tree] [Karen Barbé · Textile designer · Dotted tree] [Karen Barbé · Textile designer · Dotted tree] [Karen Barbé · Textile designer · Dotted tree] The plastic dots are finally up in the tree. All made with plastic bottles and a cap as a topper. Cheap but a little time-consuming.

Karen, I have been busy working in my own version of "Santa's workshop" mainly knitting and crocheting and painting Christmas cards ... and them I click over to your marvelous site and see this delightful tree!

You are so clever in your use of all sorts of materials. I love the idea of sitting in a rescued old arm chair and looking out the window and thinking, thinking, letting the mind travel. Clearly that armchair is a launching pad for many wonderful creative ideas in your beautiful mind.
