A Chill in the Air

It's cold out and the smell of Autumn is in the air. The days are still warm but, nights are pretty chilly. Do you know what that means?!?!?!? The Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival is almost here!!!! Hooray!!! It's a piece of spinner's heaven right here on Earth!!! I have only missed one year since I started serious fiber work and that was because I was VERY pregnant:) In the anticipation I have been spinning like a mad woman.......seriously!!! Before I whip out pictures of some new fun yarn I thought I would share two of the finished tencel scarves.
They are both on the dark side but, right up my alley:) The third is gold and charcoal and I hope to get around to taking more pictures of that one tomorrow.

This fantastic colorway is for the October Challenge for EtsyFAST, which is candy. Candy corn.......made with real corn syrup, so it has to be good for you!
Election yarn just for s and g's.

Finally, next Monday I will be picking up my new darling:) Tom Beaudet built this loom for me and I have been almost literally ripping my hair out with anticipation to pick it up.....next Monday.....show time!!!
It's funny because there are several other weaver's blogs that I read and the talk is in the air of new looms all over! Three to be exact! What a treat not only to work with new equipment but to watch others work with their new 'toys' as well:) How much fun is that?!?!

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. …
