Naughty Me
I FINALLY started weaving my latest project today after 2 1/2 weeks of fighting with getting the loom warped properly. I am doing a twill pattern and I goofed the first time thru. What a serendipitous goof. I loved the way it looked so I kept right on *goofing.* I probably got 18" done in the 1 1/2 hours I actually was weaving. I have 2 weeks to get it done. Thankfully I can now go in other than during class time to work. Problem is, I am going to be gone from tomorrow morning until next Wednesday afternoon. So, I will have to work my not-so-little tushie off to finish. I have to say, my previous weaving was ok but I wasn't as excited by it as I am by quilting.....but, after today, I am hooked!!

Anyway, why am I naughty?? Well, I forgot my camera so you will have to wait until next week to see it.

Gretchen....thank you, thank you, thank you. You are a wonderful teacher. And you and Mary Ellen are great cheerleaders!!! I can't wait to get my own loom and learn how to use it.

    I started as a weaver - got my own loom in the early 70's and used to well stuff in the museum shop in Schenectady. When we moved to CA in the late 70's, I hardly ever used it! I finally sold it 3 years ago! But it is a craft that I still love.
    Anxious to see what you are doing.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
