Merry Christmas!!!!!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!!!! It took Jeremiah three days to get through all of his presents! We had to open each one and then take it out of the box and play with it. :) One lesson I did learn this year was that he would have been fine with two or three fun toys instead of the ten that he did get from us. It was so easy to over do it and I think we would have been fine if only one of us shopped but, we went separately and on different days.......phew! Not to mention, the Grand parents all showered him with gifts too!!!
Here is a picture of Jeremiah with his cousin Jada at Iggy (what he calls his Grandmother.....and no one can figure out why!) and Pop's house on Christmas Eve opening presents. They were so much fun to watch and I was impressed that they were both so well behaved. :)
In other spinning/weaving news, I have been renewing items on Etsy instead of listing new items because we have been so busy with the hustle and bustle of Christmas, I haven't been able to spin or weave much. So, a new fresh start is on the way. Since there are currently two loom in the studio, I'm thinking that I may sell my 60" Nilus and look for something a tad smaller, perhaps 36" - 42" just to loosen up a little room in here. I have found that I'm not using the full 60". A matter of fact, the most I've used is around 36" for a baby blanket years ago. I did find a loom for sale local (I'll elaborate more once it's here....if I get it) that I think will be perfect;)
Well, I'm off to tend the tot and doggie.......I'm sure they are up to no good by now;)

Yep, Christmas is all about the kids. The grandgirls are coming today for our present opening. Big smiles for me.

What a sweet little man! I *love* that it took him days to open all his presents because he wanted to play with them as he went. :) Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas, surrounded by family, hooray!

And I hear you on the wider width loom - I don't use my 60" much either (I think I'd need a flying shuttle, it makes my back hurt when I do weave something wide for family - decrepit at 40, lol!)...

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?
