25 Random Facts About Me Meme Tag

Sharon tagged me with a meme tag for listing 25 random things about me. Check out her fabulous blog at http://www.sagecreekfarm.blogspot.com/ . The rules are that I make the list and then tag up to 25 other bloggers to do the same......I'm not sure I'll find 25....but, I'll sure tag a few.

Okay.....here we go.

1) I am a born again Christian!

2) I used to be one of those scary goth chicks.......:) Black lipstick and earrings everywhere;)

3) I learned to weave from a little tiny European woman who made me start all over if I made a mistake......best teacher in the world!!!

4) I have been knitting/crochet and cross stitch since I was six years old:)

5) I have a wonderful three year old who can talk anyone's head off.

6) My husband spent almost a year over seas in the current war on terror in Iraq and has since served his term in the military.........can you believe that he is thinking about re-enlisting?

7) I still have a LOT of earrings:)

8) My Dad is my best friend!!!!!

9) I hate pink:)

10) My favorite food in the whole world is meatloaf........I will even order it at a diner....ew!!!

11) Bologna, olives, salt, and tomatoes are of my least favorite foods BUT........I like oliveloaf and will eat a slice of tomato with salt on it......I can't even figure that one out.

12) I left the insurance business to stay home with my little boy but, found that I have a nasty case of ants in the pants so, that's how Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio got started:)

13) I'm not fond of blues.

14) Weaving is passion!!!!! I like spinning second but, weaving really really really is my passion.

15) I am the coordinating secretary for the Wurtsboro Arts Alliance.

16) I am one of two girls..........the other one is a successful 'controller' at a company that makes parts for the military.......she's a number cruncher.

17) I majored in electronics and couldn't tell you a thing about it. :) I had a 100 average (102 if you count in the extra credit assignments) .........if you don't use it, you loose it;)

18) I have lived in upstate New York my whole life and have no plans on leaving....I love it here.

19) I'm certainly a cat person and have never really liked dogs BUT, we got a South African Boerboel for Christmas (my husband did) and she has really grown on me.....she is 5 months old and weighs 65 lbs!!!! Right now she is snoring like my Grandpa used to:)

20) My son was named after the prophet Jeremiah........want to know what God said to him? This is so cool!!!!! "I know the plans I have for you. Plans for welfare and not for evil. To give you a future and a hope" I just love that!!!

21) I make my bed every morning but, hardly ever remember to take the clothes out of the washer and have to wash them again......what's up with that?

22) The furthest out of state that I have ever been south is Florida, east is New Jersey shore, North is Canada (Niagra Falls area) and west is Moorehead Minnesota.....two weeks there in a hotel because of broken lug nuts on a tire! oh boy!!!

23) I love the summer the best and love it when the humidity is extreme. The only reason I haven't moved to the Amazon is because they 1) don't really have a lot of books there 2) Winter gives me an excuse to not leave the house.

24) I clean houses.

25) My dream is to one day have a brick and mortar shop where I can teach folks (both adults and kids) various forms of fiber arts.

Ok.....I'll tag some other bloggers:)

I have been reading the results of this tag at various places including yours. It is very interesting to read little tidbits about everyone. -Renee

Fun list - thanks. I was surprised at all the things I learned about people when I thought I knew them. The list allows the trivia that doesn't fit the context of a blog. I make my bed every day too - I would never have thought to say that!!

How fun! What a neat way to learn more about you! Bless your hubby's heart... My nephew-in-law got back from his third (fourth?) tour in Iraq just before Christmas (he defuses IEDs - yikes). I can't imagine how you do it all with him gone - good for you! (Must be so hard for him, too!)

Two weeks in Moorehead Minnesota. I have a niece going to collage in Moorehead. I loved hearing about you and sure do admire both you and your husband. Sure must be hard being away from each other.

Shannon, thank you so much for your kind words on my blog this morning. Your warmth comes across even through the computer screen.

On a lighter note, I really enjoyed reading your trivia. We share African Dogs. Although, mine is a Rhodesian Ridgeback or South African Lion Dog. They, like yours, were a mixture of the Dutch colonists dogs, and the wild native dogs.

And -- I confess, I do the same thing with my laundry!! I agree--what's up with that??!! *grin*

A big thanks to your husband and to you for his service. The wives and family at home, are just as much a part and I truly appreciate the sacrifices that your young family has made.

Wishing you a wonderful, creative day,

Jane

Handwoven Store Up and Running!!!

Well, mission accomplished!  The Hand Woven store is up and running with some items that I've worked on recently.  The intent being to have a bit of variety and a splash or two of color.  There are some shibori scarves, chenille scarves, tencel scarves...scarves, scarves, scarves.  Just in time for this year's holiday season!














Yes.  Of course, there are towels as well but, I'll be adding them at a later time.  The Etsy store can be located right from this page by scrolling to the top and selecting the Hand Woven Store tab.  Well, back to the loom! :)

Waffle Weave Towels

There really is no greater therapy than creating.  There is something to be said when one can take time to create something and sit back and look at the results and be pleased.  I've been working through my stash of yarn and am nearing the end of it.  I'm getting to the colors that I'm not very fond of which is, in turn, making me look at the finished products and thinking 'meh'.  This last run of tencel scarves had me feeling that way.  I much prefer using rich colors as opposed to muted tones because the results are always pleasing to the eye.  Though these scarves have great luster due to the fiber content, they just lack the 'wow' I like to say when I'm finished.

     Switching gears and heading over to my Glimakra, I've decided to go with a run of waffle weave towels.  Since I don't have any unmercerized cotton left, I'm working with 5/2 mercerized cotton in teal and natural.

     As I was counting out the warp and listening to G…

Americana Chenille Scarves on Memorial Day

Still working through the stash of yarn that I already have, I've decided on a run of chenille scarves in red, white and blue!

There is so much to work through in my stash and at the rate I'm going, I may never have to buy yarn again!

I took pictures indoors on a dreary day so the colors don't pop like they would in natural sunlight but you get the idea.  I went with a classic plaid for two and a plain creamy white for the weft in the third.

This was a quick easy plain weave...just trying to cut down the stash!


The weather has finally broken!  An extra month of Winter was a little too much for me so, when I'm not home when I should be home, it's on the trail I am.  Lush green leaves are finally here :)
