Eggs lay foundation for crafting


Jane and Ernie Turner show crafts and treats they make that will be sold at Saturday’s Community Christmas Bazaar. The Pilot/Jane Stebbins

Jane Turner doesn’t think of herself as an artist.

Yet she mills natural, aromatic glycerine soaps, paints zany fish sculptures and mobiles, makes creamy truffles and sweet candies and a hearty granola. And don’t forget the pickled quail eggs that are so popular, the 40 birds she and her husband raise can’t keep up with demand.

“I don’t feel like I’m artistic,” she said. “To me, I don’t even feel it’s art. It’s not even crafty. I guess I make … ideas.”

There's something about the smell of warm, wet wool that brings a smile to Melanie Rutledge's face. The Brookings woman spent a recent morning outside, dipping beige worsted wool into vats of dye, preparing skeins of yarn for the annual Brookings-Harbor Holiday Christmas Bazaar.

Rutledge will be there for the first time, with her bins of hand-dyed yarn in a palette of colors: honey mustard, pecan brown, cabernet, peacock blue and the brights of Easter egg dye among them.

“It’s all experimentation,” she said, stuffing a tress of twisted licorice yarn into a quart jar on her outdoor stove. “It’s all trying to get the right recipe down.”
