MUCH Going On:)

Sooooooo much going on! Wow! I honestly don't even know where to start! This year has been absolutely the busiest I've ever been in my life! :) I have roughly 15 handwoven items in my possession! I seriously can't even believe that! I look at my inventory and just say...."wow"....with a long pause before and after. My dear friend Lynn from New Prospect Pottery and I have grabbed the show bull by the horns and ran with it. Teaming up has been wonderful, to say the least! .........there's someone there to watch the table when you have to use the little girls room;)

With that being said, it's time to make more! :) The one major thing I've learned through this season is that time management is essential. Being over scheduled and tired is not conducive to productivity! So, I'm currently in the processes of finding my balance........and including more of the work that I love.......the design that puts me at ease.........or as some put it......my zen. Which is a term I had to look up. It apparently refers to a type of religious meditation...........I think they have me pegged! This was realized in my abrupt move! Who moves in one day!!?!??!?!? I've always done it a piece at a time.....here a little there a little. In the one day move, it put me out of weaving, spinning, and design commission for almost a week. Lock me up! Put me in a straight jacket and throw away the key if I can't do what I was made to do! :) By the way.....the move was planned.....I just thought I would move over a two week period. Thanks to well organized friends, I was out in one day. So two Honda Civics and a van and I was packed and moved in one day.......ok ok.....maybe not 'packed' but close enough.....who needs boxes anyway?! ....thanks Vanessa;) ox!

The new studio, which is still not all together, is located in my hometown. I'm thrilled to be back on 'this side of the mountain' and in such a lovely community. The studio should be open by appointment only after the first of the year. Doing show locally has shown me that there is an interest in this ancient yet modern art......people want to see how it's done:) And although I don't need an open all day access point for my work, I'm looking forward to live demonstrations:)

So...in a nutshell that's about it! I'm dearly sorry for not posting any pictures. I always feel like that's the best part! See ya next time!

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?
