Hello, again from the beginning

I have been offline for quite awhile due to an administration problem.  I hope to get back into the blog format and to be visible often. Life continues to be busy and I am preparing for a trip to Olds, Alberta for Fibre Week and a twill workshop with Jane Stafford. I am excited to be doing this as she is a great teacher and sharer of information. I took The Delectable Sari a couple of years ago at Maiwa on Granville Island, Vancouver, BC.

I have been busy these past months working for the local libraries, teaching textile workshops such as felting, spinning, and knitting. These have been well received and very successful and I have been asked to continue in the fall. As the time and space is limited, I have to be quite creative in my planning. Felting has been the most popular so is what I will continue with. We did both traditional wet felt workshops and needlefelt workshops.  I took the last class samples to my Guild meeting today. I turned them into little bags, for iPods, change purse or small hand purse. Nice results.

I spent time with my friend who is just learning to weave and wanted help and company at her house. I took my Woolhouse loom to her place and wove several projects. I finished my Horoscope weave from last year’s conference and discovered that it has a wonderful potential as a summer shawl. Then I put on a waffle weave project which I wove off in linen and paper. That was successful as well. Next was a basket weave/twill bookmark project in black warp and space dyed crochet cotton. I was happy with the results of this one. Now, my loom has the warp for the workshop at Olds and is a twill gamp which looks interesting and will give me more ideas. My friend has not been available so I have forged ahead on my own and successfully completed several projects. Now, I need another impetus to finish my baby blankets on a large loom and a lace scarf on a smaller loom. And someone to encourage me to put rugs or blankets on my 60″ loom.
