Meet Kip

Diana went home. As much as we had our ups and downs (Diana and I), I do have to say that Leclerc and their customer service is absolutely phenomenal!!! I knew it was going to be a road trip to bring her back and was sure that I really should get something to go in her place. I thought for some time and ended up going with something that would work better for doing demonstrations and to bring along to 'weaving functions'. I decided on a Leclerc Compact so, I called my darling sister-in-law and we hopped in her car with my nephew and off we were!

Jaime was wonderful during picture taking time. She is always one to be counted on for new 'Vogue-like' poses. Here she is with the famous 'not now I have no make up on paparazzi' pose.


Here is my favorite little nephew showing Auntie what he is going to be doing the whole trip. Watching the best movie in the whole world (to him) Cars!!! Check out those eyes!!!!!

Who sleeps like this?! :)

So, the next thing to do is name the loom. Jaime says, "So what are you going to name this one?" Now, if anyone knows the story behind Ishmael and Isaac and knows the story behind the whole Diana (Ishmael) and Megado (Isaac), you know that these looms apparently live up to their names. I said after a long pause, "I don't know." Jaime then said about the funniest thing I have ever heard in my entire life........"How about Kip!"

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!

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 lea
