Fringe Twisting Frenzy

It all started with last night.......twisting twisting twisting. This is what happens when I save all of the twisting the fringe for one night, something I don't see myself doing again:) A total of 8 sashes and 4 scarves. The sashes were 16 twists each and the scarves were 32. That's a total of 256!!! (If my math is right;) I saved the last four for tonight and they are all done, wet finished, and hanging on the racks by an open window as opposed to the normal next to the fire since the weather is nice. Phew!!! Check that one off the list.

I do not have finished pictures of the sashes mentioned earlier in the blog, I will have some shortly, but I do have some of a plain blue and white sash. Before I pop this picture up.....there is a little story......

I was looking around for someone to be a model for the sashes. It wasn't a big deal to get the picture done right away so, I kind of sat on the idea not rushing it. Every time that was opportune, I didn't bring the camera or something didn't work out, etc. Again, no biggie. I spoke someone to explain what I needed her to wear and what it was for, etc. Explaining that I will cut off her head (not literally:) and it should just take a couple minutes, wear something black, etc. She agreed and then to confirm she said, "So you want me to be, like a mannequin?" After a fit of laughter, I responded "You're hired!!"

Needless to say, it didn't work out and I got one of my favorite people to pose for the picture instead and yes, I chopped off her head:)

At last..................the (basic blue) sash.

Pine cones, Gingerbread Men, Maple Leaves, ?

I was asked if I can weave pine cones onto towels by a very influential woman of God in my life. Of course, I said "Yeah! Sure!". Knowing full well that with a little bit of research and effort, I would be able to weave just about any image out there with a 3/1 twill. Well, I think I have what I'm looking for. These are screen shots of the front and back of the image. So....I was wondering.......what do you think? Does it look like a pine cone ? I have the loom beamed, as of last night, in a point twill 1-32 and am planning on a natural cotton with a band on either side of the towel with a strip of pine cones . Since I put enough on the loom for four sets of two, I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and make my mother-in-law a set of gingerbread men towels for her kitchen. She's a little obsessed with gingerbread men....it's her kitchen theme that has spilled into the dinning room and living room :) Gotta love her!!! That leaves (ha ha ha sounds lik

I Guess That's Just Life

I will be posting again soon. I'm in the midst of a move. Sometimes the choices we make in life don't turn out as planned......or don't turn out at all. I have come to the hard decision that leaving my current residence and moving to an apartment with my son (and two cats) is best for our family. The past six years have been fairly difficult and the last two have been slightly overbearing. I think I'm writing all of this here because I feel that the stress I have been feeling has prevented me from being as productive as I can be. Some people are good 'under pressure' but, I find that I am about the worst 'under pressure'. I have been searching for a new place for about six months and finally came across something within reasonable distance from my sub job with the Post Office, cleaning jobs, and family. There is plenty of room for Jeremiah, myself, and (of course) my two looms:) One of which I will ecstatically set up in the living room area!

March!

I would like to thank EVERYONE for your kind words and thoughts and prayers and blessings;) Jeremiah and I are doing fabulous at our new location...........as the wrinkles of life get their due ironing, I'm finding my place and trying my hardest to settle in with the new adjustments. I've found one thing for sure........I have 'free time' or rather, time to work, where I didn't have it before. :) As the last bits of snow fall from the sky this morning, I had some time to work on some new draft ideas............and I am liking the results for sure:) I'm going to commit to working on my COE ......I just have to send away for the info.............I've never been so inspired in all my life to create..............woo! Weavecast (I'm like two years behind on episodes:) has a wonderful episode featuring information on completing a COE and the one thing I heard over and over was that most of the weavers wished that they would have used the COE process to lea
