Bran-doodle-new

So I went for a new layout:) What do you think? I was thinking this was much brighter and cheerier than the last! Perfect for this fabulous 90 degree weather that we've been having as well!!! I've promised myself that this is a time to 'kick it up a notch' so, I've really been on the ball with pictures and updating......at least compared to how I've lacked recently:)


Since the weather was nice, I was able to get some pictures taken outside in the fabulous bright sun!!! I just love this time of year and am one of those people that just can't sweat enough. Honestly, I should live in the Amazon:) So, here is the beginning results of pictures......next time I'll charge the battery BEFORE. Nothing like planning head;)


Plaited twill echo weave. Yellow and orange warp, blue weft.

Rust water spots!!!!!!!!!


Waves and water with a key lime weft! I just love this one in the sun!


Basket weave towels in burnt orange and natural!

These above items will be available on Etsy soon:)


Finally here is what is on the Compact loom (Kip). A set of rep weave runners for my friend Lynn. She has a house to die for......honestly, the moment you step in you are greeted with Southern style hospitality (even though she's a NYC gal) and art covers the place like a blanket of fresh snow. She's a fabulous potter and has a personality that's so infectious that you can't help but drive home only to 'create':)

This is my first bout with rep weave. So far okay.....I wasn't thrilled about beaming the warp, the sett is 30 with 3/2 cotton!!! ;) I can do this......I can do this!!!! ;)

Happy summer!!!

Wow doesn't even begin to cover it! I love, love, love the plaited twill echo weave scarf! Seems I've got some figuring out to do... Echo Weave is a real passion with me and I hadn't thought to try it with a true twill weave structure.

I love what you did to your blog! The live traffic thing is the bomb! I'll have to add that to mine. Love your latest weaving exploits and I have my eye on one of your handspuns in your Etsy shoppe. ;)

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?
