What A Perfect Day!

We got some early snow this year and what better weather to start a new project!  Here's a shot of my home studio.  I have plenty of light and high ceilings, which makes me very happy :)

Handwoven Store Up and Running!!!

Well, mission accomplished!  The Hand Woven store is up and running with some items that I've worked on recently.  The intent being to have a bit of variety and a splash or two of color.  There are some shibori scarves, chenille scarves, tencel scarves...scarves, scarves, scarves.  Just in time for this year's holiday season!
