The Secret Project

Let me first start with the fact that the second issue of Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio was a great success. We got a lot of really wonderful feedback and suggestions. One of which was for a tutorial video of how to knit the continental way. I'm happy to announce, that is in the works. Honestly, at this point, it is simply a matter of understanding software......something that takes time:) So a big thank you to everyone with your phone calls and beautiful emails. They were so appreciated and it is very encouraging to us to have your support:)

The most current project has been kept secret because it is a gift. I apologize and wish greatly that I could post pictures because it is absolutely beautiful and cannot wait to once the gift is given.

Perhaps changing the 'up next' to 'maybe up next' will be more appropriate. As each project unfolds, I find myself constantly on the look out for new inspiration in books, outside, magazines, people, the stash, etc..... A very special person made me a raddle, the piece of the puzzle that was missing for me to warp back to front to break out of my weaver's rut. I would prefer to use it with a narrow small project and I am really leaning toward working on these purple towels. I very well may push warping back to front for another day. It's so easy to push off new things:) Thank you for your patience with me. Also, I apologize for no new picture.

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 like a pun)…

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 learn. …
