Did you know?

A "Pandula" is a flower which blooms only in one's imagination.

Hi There!

August 27, 2013

I have been a very busy little beaver this last 2 wks.  I have created and even sold a few more baskets.  Some I didn't even have time to photograph. 

One was done in sky blue thread and had a center of Cedar the same as the one I did in the last post.

I have two larger than my norm pieces ready for the September 6, First Friday of the month Artwalk in St. Augustine.  They are indeed for sale if anyone is interested.  Just contact me via e mail at pandulaarts@yahoo.com for more details and or pricing.

Take a look, but do keep in mind that I am going for more 'showy', larger pieces.  I absolutely love love love the look of the one with the Philodendron sheath added to the rim.  If you look close you will even see that there are tiger eye beads nestled in the center of them.

Art Walk in St. Augustine, FL and a new basket.

August 8, 2013

Art Walk was a blast last Friday night.  I not only got my first showing of my baskets at the High Tide Gallery, but I also got to rub elbows with a lot of the local's from years gone by and of course the Artist's as well.  I really love the little gallery and the fact that Aimee, the owner, showcases only local artists.  There was lots of good music, comradery, food and fun for all.  I even saw some people I had not seen in many years.

I didn't sell anything, but I didn't really expect to the first go round.  Next month I will be more prepared as I want to make some larger, more showy pieces and now have the time to do it.  Here is a picture of my small display.

I also completed a slightly larger than usual basket this week.  I absolutely love, love, love the new wood centers.  All of this time I have been calling this Cedar wood, but it turnsout that it is Juniper.  I do think though that Juniper is a sister or close cousin to the Cedar.  The threads were chosen by my friend KraftyMax and I absolutely adore them with the Cedar.  Here are a few pictures of the almost completed basket.

These colors make me think of my friend Dana from Georgia...guess I need to make another!
