Kaysa models the needle felted design published by Ashford of New Zealand in The Wheel magazine out in October. The design is felted in 3-D from Ashford roving hand-dyed by Lisa with Ashford colors. The rose design was developed at the request of Elizabeth Ashford, president of the company which manufactures quality spinning wheels and accessories and offers fiber for spinning and related arts.

Through Lisa's encouragement, friend KAREN ECKMEIER has included a wonderful hat from Lisa's sewing patterns in her latest book of quilting techniques, Layered Waves. Karen's talent, mannerisms and unique approach never cease to amaze her following and her latest book is no exception. Karen made waves into a charming and useful garden hat from Lisa's Wide Brim Hat pattern. Lisa gifted Karen the corsage for embellishing the hat on her birthday. A winning combination!
