A large 2nd Monday weavers gathering met at Denise and Bill's sweet  and homey brick house overlooking the Kickapoo River in Gays Mills.  Such an idyllic setting.  While it is spectacular now in its winter whites I would love to see it again surrounded by the lovely shades of spring greens and knowing Denise; [...]

As the spring weather awakens a more colorful world, I thought I would share a couple of sites that I use for color inspiration in my dyeing and weaving, and truth be told to just play around on the computer. Gasp! I have just found design-seeds  and find them a good site for some color therapy. My [...]

My friend Carole and I found plenty to be inspired by; both in the artists we talked to and [...]

brave?fall shadowspatternsthe fairy forestsumacskywardsMy morning walk is a necessary realignment of my thought processes.  As long as I am listening to the wind in the trees and seeing the patterns in the shadows of the sunlit trees, I am inclined to leave at home, any of the day to day got- to- dos.   And [...]

 To celebrate a beautiful fall day and honor our 20th anniversary my hubby and I kayaked on the Mississippi River around Goose Island.  A fitting tribute to our honeymoon in the Boundary Waters; although that trip involved getting snowed on, nearly capsizing in howling winds with frozen fingers.Definitely memorable. This day was perfectly filled with [...]

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 [...]
