I started warping/dressing my loom on Sunday afternoon. Um...I made a few mistakes.
We have 138 people in the Knitting Community who admit to being weavers or are interested in weaving. Did you know we now have a Weave Along, where you can share information and encouragement with other weavers? Come join up and start sharing here:
Here's what I've been working…Continue
Wednesday, Deanna, my weaving teacher, came to my house to help me set up my loom and give me a lesson.
We picked up my new loom on Wednesday and set it up in the living room until spring.Continue
This week I decided to work on my "Delectable Pathways" quilt for a bit.
The quilting bug has hit me again:
I just finished this quilt top which will be a topper for our little table in the living room. The quilt contains several fabrics I received for Christmas along with some I bought when I visited DS1 and DDIL1 in Kokomo last year.
The sewing "fit" followed a…Continue
It has been a busy week! Soren's Baby Surprise Jacket (BSJ) is finished. Here's the front.
I'm using the instructions in Elizabeth Zimmermann's…
We were supposed to have Vintage Stitchers at my house last Thursday, but DH is still down with a bad cold, one we would rather not share with our friends. Barbara stepped in (she was my backup in case of snow) and hosted us at her house. Ellen is back in town and brought her Hibiscus quilt top to give to Julie for quilting.…Continue
I was too sick to enjoy my birthday, but I'm enjoying it now. This was my big present from DH, for a big birthday (hint: it has a "0" in it).
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
Christmas was good, but my birthday, which started at a few minutes after 10:00 PM, which was a few minutes after midnight in Florida, where I was born many, many years ago, sucked! Well, this was supposed to be the "Big 70." It was, actually 70, but it was by far the worst birthday of my life, if you don't…Continue

I can't believe that a week from today will be Christmas Eve!
The realization is sinking in, though. We had Sundance volunteer sign-up on Monday, in preparation for the festival in January. Another reminder was holiday parties have been taking place with greater frequency. It's great to see old friends and relatively new but very special friends as…Continue
Happy Hanukkah, everyone! Zachary and Daphne got to celebrate with "Bubbye" and "Zayde" by way of Skype. What would we do without Skype?
When they come here, we will celebrate Christmas. Lucky kids, get to have Hanukkah and Christmas both!
Speaking of Christmas, I have…Continue
The big news on the fiber front this week is my Dogwood Blossoms. The steeks are done.
In the photo, you can just see the front is cut open. The armscye steeks are also cut. I used my sewing machine to sew on each side of the cutting line before I took the scissors to it. I'm getting pretty…Continue
It's Thanksgiving time, and I'm feeling grateful for the roof over my head and food on my table. Not everyone is so lucky. When I drive to Salt Lake City, I often run into people with signs that say, "Homeless. Please help."
Friends have told me that they are reluctant to give money to these people, because they are concerned that it won't be used for food. Even if they use it to buy food at a fast food restaurant or convenience store, they won't get much for their…Continue
After the long trip home from Golden, Colorado, I had to get up in the morning to go to Vintage Stitchers. It was worth it, though. Brenda had this wonderful tesselation quilt to show off. She's putting the binding on now.
Rebecca has started a new appliqué project (of course)! She has all the pieces glued…Continue
Common Threads met on Thursday at Jean's. She has made progress on her blanket made of leftover sock yarn:
While we were there, a couple of moose paid a visit.…Continue
We've had some progress on all fronts here. First, we finally got our first snowfall of the season. This was my back yard:
The resorts are happy. Now if it will stay cold enough, maybe they can keep some of it to form the base they will add to when they make snow. (All of our local…Continue
