Computer Stuff

Well, I guess it happens to the best of us. Yeah, you've got it. Time to update, fix, recolor (a little) and get the web site rocking and rolling. I have put it off WAY too long:) Due to some technical stuff with the shopping service we were using, we decided that it is in our best interest to use only Etsy as our online shopping cart at this time. Etsy has been absolutely wonderful to us and they offer a wonderful community environment. What better way to show our appreciation than to give back?

I can say that we are very thankful to the online community. It has been a wonderful pleasure exploring what all of the Internet has to offer. It's also very nice to actually meet people at shows, which we will continue to do and increase year to year. We also have in the works for next year a brand new line of painted roving, hand dyed yarn, hand spun yarn, and, of course, finished products online. Until this point a majority of the 'finished' items (hand wovens and knits) have been mostly only available in boutiques, galleries, and shows. Although these items will still be available in those locations, we are planning on showing more finished items for sale online.
Now to the fun stuff:) PICTURES!!!

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!

Happy Easter!!!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your families on this special Holiday;) We spent the end of the day with my Mother's side of the family watching a movie called Marley and Me. I'm not much of a movie watcher but, this movie was wonderful!!! I came home and hugged my doggie ;) A sure watch for everyone! I would also like to thank everyone for leaving such wonderful comments on my scarves:) It's so inspiring to read all of your blogs and I really appreciate that you take the time to look at mine......and then leave such great comments. I get all buttered up and want to weave weave weave:) I honestly don't know what we would all do without the Internet .....I mean......it's so great to just browse others blogs and projects;) So, here is the second scarf....the same peg plan using a black weft. And a close up of the detail. Ok ....I have a question.....I think we have all woven something that we are a little disappointed in, right?
