porch time at Barb’s

By |2016-10-25T16:52:16+00:00August 3rd, 2014|2nd Monday|2 Comments

It wouldn't be summer, without a lazy day, sitting on the porch at Barb and Harry's home; which is exactly what our weavers group did for our 2nd Monday gathering. Lots of projects to share, laughter and of course great food. Barb is as inspired of a cook as she is a weaver. I'm still [...]

it’s alive!

Collapse weave; another thing off my weavers bucket list of things to try.  As you can tell by the number of pictures I took, I was pretty excited about the results.  While most weaving transforms a bit when you finish it by washing, this actually came alive in my hands.  The first scarf that I [...]

catching up

It is finally time to post some of the weaving I did in preparation for the Driftless art fair in September.  That so traumatized me that I have only just now put something new on my loom and I am not all that happy about it.  Seems that I want to weave only something that [...]

magical day

By |2016-10-25T16:52:27+00:00July 21st, 2011|2nd Monday|2 Comments

Some days are more magical than others and our last 2nd Monday gathering of weavers and like minded fiber addicts, was just such a one.  In part every gathering is an explosive exchange of creative ideas and energy, riotous laughter and general mayhem as everyone tries to catch up with each others doings over the [...]

weaving music

I have been excited to try this weave ever since seeing the swatch in Malin Selanders book Swedish Swatches.  After a couple of mishaps on the warping reel,  a couple of slow starts having to rethink the threading for the black, I was finally weaving and watching the fabric grow.  And I don't know if [...]

think spring

Something about this thread made me take a lot of pictures of it. I couldn't even continue weaving for awhile, until I was done admiring its pattern...or something.So I was pretty happy weaving the pink and orange chenille scarves; the colors made me think of the tulips to come. Giving myself some credit or perhaps [...]
