Memorial Day!!!

What Memorial Day means in my neck of the woods is all of the 'city people' come up to stay until Labor Day or so. My normally quiet town hustles and bustles and comes alive. People walk the main strip hitting the quaint stores that put Wurtsboro on the map. Really, it's a wonderful thing! Jeremiah was in a parade and was so funny to watch. He just waved his little flag all over the place and hasn't stopped talking about it since!

The Picnic Towels are off the loom and in the dryer as we speak! (.....yes....I know it's 12:13am! Call me crazy!) I ended up weaving four sets of two and each with a different pattern. I thought I had taken pictures of all of them but, this is the only one on the camera.....strange! I'll take better pictures tomorrow:)
And now for the Waves and Water series! I'm so excited about these shawls, they are finally coming into play and I'm really happy with the results!!! Here is the first one, with a black weft. In the picture it's slightly transparent so that pattern is a little difficult to see. Often times I weave at night and lighting is not always the best at that time to take pictures:)
This is the one I finished this evening with a purple weft.....the next one......a suprise;)

Your son is a real cutie patootie!

Your weaving is beautiful (as usual!) The shawls are going to make someone feel extra special wearing them.

That new loom seems to be agreeing with you :)

Lovely shawls!! :) And, hey, we are so on the same wavelength - I've got some pinwheels going right now on my Colonial, lol. :)

Nothing better than being in a parade - all the pomp and circumstance is so much fun for a child.
Love, love, love the shawl - you are really smokin' on that loom!

I enjoy the chance to see the difference results - both are lovely. I hope you will show them all when you finish the series. I'd like to see how each weft appears on the black warp - a mini lesson for me.

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. …
