Commision Project

Hooray!!! I love when someone makes a special request! There was a tencel scarf that sold a while back on Etsy that I wove called Gothic Cross from a pattern from the Weaver's Book of 8 Shaft Patterns. Between each fringe I had put a little strand of beads, you can see it here. I should have this current scarf, in charcoal and silver, finished Tuesday or Wednesday.....all depending on the fringe and beading. :)

Here is a picture of the start.
As for the Louet Megado!!!! Well, it's all together EXCEPT for one piece which was missing from that shredded box. Oh boy! I had to order a replacement part from Louet and they said that it will take about 6 to 8 weeks for me to get it so, they are lending me the piece from their floor model! How absolutely amazing is that!? The piece that is missing is the front right beater post so, I wouldn't be able to weave without it..........it would be really hard to weave without a reed:)
The next couple of shots are of Isaac (the Megado) in the studio. Since I took these pictures at night, the flash really makes everything very yellow......oh, and I have no curtains on my windows in the studio because I have yet to weave them.........something I'm planning on this summer.

The scarf on your loom is beautiful!!! Louet sure is amazing!!! I've never heard of a company who would lend you a piece from their own looms. Congrats on your sucess with your Etsy sales.

I love your fancy twill pattern, so beautiful. I am so pleased that you also have had good experiences with Louet - they have treated me exceptionally well too.

I just love twill patterns and they look particularly lovely in tencel. I also have enjoyed using drafts from the Weaver's Book of 8 shaft patterns. Can hardly wait to see what you weave on Isaac! I am glad to continue to hear and read good things about Louet.
Looking forward to seeing the finished scarf, -Renee

Thanks for the pictures of your looms. They are beautiful, as, of course, is your scarf.

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. …
