Bookmark Exchange

I'm really excited about threading Isaac for this bookmark exchange. All of the heddles are on and he works like a charm.........now to weave! I have come up with a pattern for the bookmark using all 32 shafts. I thought it would be a great first project. I've been reading Bonnie Inouye's book, Exploring Multi Shaft Design and have come up with the 'tie up' using the method in the first chapter of the book. I tend to do things like studies in bits and pieces so, since I don't sit down at 7am and work until 5pm, it's hard to get in a 'days work' and study. Usually I get 3 hours here 2 hours there......which means at least a half hour of review:) So, this study has taken a while and I'm thrilled to finally see the first chapter manifest in this project.

I'm going to use 20/2 tencel for the warp in white and I'm going to dye the weft in a royal blue.

As for Diana, the entire top or 'guts' is going to be replaced by Leclerc. If it wasn't for their fantastic support team, I would have called it quits with her months ago. I've posted a couple of videos for them to see what is happening and apparently the knife and hammers are not interacting the way that they should.

I'll be posting more on the bookmarks as they unfold.

What a great pattern. What are you setting your 20/2 tencel at?

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?
