The wool fumes are strong there

I have been looking forward to sharing a few (maybe more than a few) of my favorite pictures from a trip my husband and youngest daughter and I took to Scotland and Ireland in May.  It is hard to describe  why I felt so connected to the beauty of these countries, especially the highlands of Scotland.

2nd Monday gathering at Barb’s

With 2 significant snowstorms in April totaling more than we had received any other month this winter, our weaving group was thrilled to pile into Barb and Harry's warm and welcoming home.

Bound weave for the new year

This bound weave sampler has been a long time in the making.  I think once I figured out how the patterns are designed and realized how slow of a process this weaving was going to be, I lost my mojo.  Maybe a downside in having 3 looms set up is that I can ignore one for a couple of years [...]

hygge with friends

Happily this months weavers gathering ended up at my house at the last minute. Although I usually avoid hosting in the winter months due to a steep and often icy driveway, I was excited to have the group visit while our Christmas tree is up and decorated.
