Our weavers gathering for January was a rather large group , hosted at fellow weavers, Katherine’s lovely restored farmhouse.

My weaving contribution was the final bamboo m’s and o’s scarves off the loom, leaving me only a few days to weave something for a group show at Viva Gallery. My idea for an image transfer onto a weaving that looked like birch bark was only partially successful. It was lots of fun to think of my weaving in an “out of the box” kind of way. My next post will be about this weaving.

Judging from the amount of work that I photographed at this gathering, not everyone was suffering from the same, post traumatic Christmas syndrome; that I was. I should be over it any time now. There were so many projects flying about, I am lucky if I saw half of them. Thanks Kathleen and Bob, for hosting our gaggle of weavers. It is funny though, how the husbands and sometimes the dogs disappear into the nether regions of the house, while we are there. Appearing briefly to do their outdoor chores, dog in tow. I am thinking that en masse, we are a bit fiber fanatical to seem entirely “safe” to those not similarity afflicted.

Pomegranate pear salsa, maple syrup pie and a lovely cake that for some reason looks fiberyish to me
