Fun Summer!!!

Well those shawls are off of the loom! I was so happy with the second run! Apparently this design is quite popular.....which makes me one happy gal! When I set up 'shop' for a show I normally try to put the most eye catching designs in the front. I have one green Waves and Water left and most of the time people look at that first!
I did a run of three, with the first here in white.
The next in a purple weft.
And this with a black weft.
I'm working in more shows this year. Typically I'll do one or two during the cooler weather but, decided to 'kick it up a notch' with some more shows. Opting to take the 'smaller' ones and utilize them for the exposure. I thoroughly enjoy doing the shows so I'm actually looking forward to the 'extras'.
The June show was the Pine Bush Art Tour. This is their second year and I was pleased to find that I would be set up on the Pine Bush Bed and Breakfast porch! I should have taken a picture of the full building. It's a beautiful place with manicured landscaping and an overall Victorian theme that literally knocked my socks off! It rained in the morning so I was thrilled to be under this wonderful roof!
Scarf racks:)
Yarn rack, more scarves, towels, and my 'post'.
In family news, we went for a class trip to the Land of Make Believe! I really didn't know what to expect but, it is in fact a 'real place'. :) I was certain we were going to be pretending that we were on a school trip:) Jeremiah spent time with his little friends. It's so cute to watch them:)
This picture just cracks me up!!! Looks like he's really flying, right?! :)
And finally I had to throw this one in here. I guess I didn't realize how long my hair was! It's longer than my own kid!!! Time for a hair cut? Hmmmmmmmm.
Well, next to get those towels off the loom so I can start a set of runners:) Happy weaving!

What a great set up for you. I love the racks you have to display your items. Your son is adorable and looks like he had a blast.

What a great display you set up! It's very inviting and you are showing your shawls so beautifully. Hope it was a financial success too!

Lovely shawls and I like the one with the black warp, especially!

These shawls are STUNNING!!! And how you achieved that pattern is boggling my mind! I do most of my weaving on a 4-harness, but recently bought a vintage 8-harness, and haven't figured out the planning for it at all yet. Are you willing to share your threading/tie up?

I'm curious about your computer program, too. I, too have Fiberwerks, and I do like it, but it looks like you drew the design first, then the computer figured out threading/treadling. Is that true? Will Fiberwerks work that way?

Thanks!

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?
