Tons Done!

....I would first like to start with answering a question about the lace shawl that I knit over the winter. It is this pattern on Ravelry:


You need an account to see the pattern (I'm pretty sure) and you can't go wrong on Ravlery....I just love it!
I've been super busy between work and all of my fiber projects that I've neglected posting.....again! :) Issac (the Megado) is back up and running and I was able to finish the charcoal and black water spot scarves that were on it. I actually ended up finishing with a teal weft and thought that it turned out pretty fun:
I still have to twist the fringe on this one as well as the painted huck lace one I did a while back.
I got an order for another Waves and Water Shawl. Everyone eyeballs this at any show that I do. I originally made three one with black weft, purple weft, and green weft. They all sold except for the green so, I'm making another black, purple, and I'm thinking of a white to give it some 'zing' but, I may change my mind once I get to the third on this one:)
And finally here is what's on Kip (the Compact). I have my towels in my friend's gallery in Ulster Park and she's requested that I make more towels. Basket weave is a fun two treadle plain weave pattern. It's all just a matter of changing the colors......nice and easy and a nice stash reducer. I accidentally ordered 4 lbs of natural cotton a couple of years ago and I have about 2 lbs of this burnt orange and about another 2 lbs of hunter green. I'm planning on eventually weaving the same towels in green as well.
I have high hopes of taking pictures of all of the finished scarves on Monday! I can't wait because I really need to get some of the new items listed on Etsy. Keep your fingers crossed! :) Until next time!

Your scarves look wonderful and I'm looking forward to seeing them off loom and around your neck! You always seem to achieve such lovely looks in your photos!
As always I loved catching up on whats on your looms.

Lovely colors on your scarves! I love the sheen to the yarn and the color play across the fabric. Nice!

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. …
