Artworks Gallery welcomes new members Nan Leaman and Janet King as Featured Artist during the month of February.
Leaman, a fiber artist, creates one of a kind wearables. Nan says, “I love working with color and creating texture through color and various surface design techniques.” Nan’s pieces start out as white cloth, either wool or silk, then they are carefully dyed using a variety of techniques. King sculpts 3-D felt in unique abstract sculptures, traditional bowls and vessels, and illuminated structures covered with a sheer felt. Janet also makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces using extra soft merino, silk ribbons, natural stones, dichroic glass, fused glass and more. Janet says, “I love that everything I create is made from natural, organic and renewable raw materials.”

Explore the diverse media, creative techniques, and visual traditions in this exhibit of fiber surface design from artists living and working on Whidbey Island, WA.
Whidbey Island Surface Design is a group of artists living and working on a beautiful island in Puget Sound. All are members of the Surface Design Association an, while we work in many different media, techniques, and visual traditions, we share a fascination and ongoing interest in embellishing the surfaces of our artworks through the use of surface design techniques.
Surface design encompasses the coloring, patterning, and structuring of fiber and fabric. This involves creative exploration of processes such as dyeing, painting, printing, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, felting, and paper making.
Pre Holiday—Jewelry Show

The Purebreds are beginning to lamb and at 1am these two twins graced us with their unique beauty.
The photo above and below show the Teeswater twins at not yet a day old.
The first of the lambs began dropping March 28th, 2012.
This week began with two sets of twins and was shortly followed by two sets of triplets within two days of each other. The first set was ten, eleven and eight pounds. Two ewe lambs and a ram lamb, all healthy. The second set of triplets happened over a 2 hour period with an eleven pound ewe lamb, a fourteen pound ram lamb and a ten pound ram lamb.
We have 5 more Cross bred ewes expected to lamb before the big push next week when 17 Pure bred ewes are expected to start lambing.
It is an exciting time at Wild Rose Farm with round the clock watches on lambing activity in the barn.
So far everyone is healthy and happy with 100% successful births.
Not much more we can ask for, except maybe a little extra sleep.
