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!
