Out of my six suggestions, I will probably complete three more before I decide on a new series. I'm already enamored with 'amulets' but I might change my mind before I finish the next three.

Exploring new directions following my list of six suggestions (Facebook June 4th) and along the way I believe I have found a creative expression in making amulets. In the ancient world there was a thin line between magic and medicine and calling on a "scorpion charmer" was common. This charmer would among other duties, create amulets for a patient for protection?! Ideas are developing but my best way is to plunge in and try this or that...this piece went several directions and I stopped at this point. I had fun stitching beads 'using up' small amounts of leftover glass and plastic beads.

I've been needing a new muse and I finally settled myself to creating one. My muses, as this one wear helmets (Norse warrior women) and usually have interesting hair styles. I keep a childlike approach as that appeals to me as inspirational. She stands before an open gate( A Dr. Seuss like gate) to guide me into new fabric work. This time she is outfitted with a candle for dark times. All this wrapped up in a heavy dose of courage, gratitude and probably hard work!
