This is what I've been up to. I've been extruding clay to my heart's delight and my fingers' despair. Even with a Makin's Clay extruder (my favorite!), these were painful to create. But oh, how I love them. I have such plans for my little colorful clay threads!!

Visit her etsy store and her flickr page!
Here are threads she made as a result of a class she took with Cynthia Toops:

Now, mind you, this is not what I have in mind for my threads. Not exactly, anyway. My ideas are still in the planning stage, experimentation to come!!! I think I need to extrude more colors. Yes. More colors....
