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! Only time will tell but, I feel that this is what is best..............I will get caught up on reading blogs and posting as soon as I'm settled in;) Best to you all!!!

Good luck with your move and new apartment.
I think being under pressure and under stress are two different things and it sounds like you've been under a lot of stress which isn't good for you mental and physically.
I'll be wait for your next post and hopefully pictures of your new home.

Holding you and your son in my thoughts and prayers, and hoping you will have a positive outcome in your life. A loom in the living room is a Good Thing!

I turned my living room into my weaving studio, and new living room upstairs (about to be moved to another room) will have one or two looms in it.

Your weaving is beautiful, you are working hard, be sure to take care of yourself, too.

I'm sorry to hear your under stress, that is definately soulsucking. I'll keep you both in my prayers. You know a loom in the living room is a great decorating accessory (hugs)

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)…

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. …
