Purple Wisteria

I am home from Stitches South. Had a WONDERFUL time, spent way too much time ( and money) in the market place. Came home with yarn and ideas for myself and to sell (for my Etsy shop). In time I will show my workshop accomplishments, none of which are quite complete at this time. I took two entrelac workshops from a wonderful teacher, Gwen Bortiner, one of the nations top entrelac experts. She has an entrelac book coming out in August at Stitches Midwest, out for the general public in September. Sweaters, etc in this book, I can't wait to get my copy, but I won't be going to Stitches Midwest.
Oh yes, the purple wisteria above is not at my arbor, but in my backyard. It is from my mother's yard, which means it is from my Granny's yard. Wish I knew where all Granny's flowers originated, may be from several more generations of my family.

I bet you are excited to try out all your new found techniques - I've never even hear the word - entrelac ;-) But if you like it, I'm sure it will be amazing - haha.

Your wisteria pictures is just exquisite! That's one thing I love about the south - besides the gorgeous Live oaks - the fragrant, wonderful wisteria! I've been training a wisteria vine to be a tree and it hasn't bloomed yet. The nursery told me to keep giving it a big hair cut. I don't know if it'll ever bloom ;-)

Bird Girl - I do think the big haircut does help the wisteria bloom, but they have to get big enough to get the big haircut first. I read that somewhere

Sounds like you are really taking a liking to that felting, to invest so much time into it to learn more. Good for you! Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Gorgeous wisteria--I always wish I had some in my yard when I see it. Might help if I planted some.

Glad to hear you had a great time Leedra. Even tho it grows like crazy, wisteria really is so pretty.

The wisteria is beautiful, and knowing it came from your Granny's yard makes it much more special.

The purple wisteria is beautiful. Can't wait to see what projects you will do with all the yarn you bought in Atlanta.
