Last week, a friend asked me what I was working on these days.
In response, I rattled off a list of projects and tasks that is the length of my arm.
The next day, as I was leaving the dentist, he drove up to the stop sign, he said: ‘Oh yah, you say you’re working on all these things, but here you are, just walking down the street!’
Um… if I could master the transporter, I would! Zap! into the dentist chair! Zap! Home again! Sparkle sparkle zing.
I would like that….
Anyhow, here are some of the things that are happening in my studio right now….
(Not ~ all ~ the things that are happening, as I can’t show projects that I am designing for magazines etc- the editors would be smacking me on the side of the head if I did….)
(and I am working on some stuff that I need to not talk about until it ripens. You know how it is.)
Okay… first things first…
We have adopted an adorable little rescue…. he’s 4 1/2 years old and is just wonderful.
(except for being a cat botherer… that is NOT good :( ) This is him (in his fetching blue harness) with his adopted big brother. (Our dear old chihuahua/daschund cross).
Ah, well, other than being oh so barkie about the cats, he is completely adorable. As you can see, he has settled in beautifully.
Although, every adoption takes time and patience and attention….
Alright…. a brief zip around the studio:
Okay, in the southeast corner, there’s a big project happening on my tri loom (configured to the 3 foot size).
I’ll be posting more about this as the project moves closer to the finish line:
My tri loom is from Dewberry Ridge looms, and it’s beautifully crafted. I love it.
I have other projects on the go on Dewberry Ridge looms:
I am weaving a scarf for my daughter on the 14 inch tri loom. Link to another post about this scarf: linkie
And, I am using a Dewberry Ridge Potholder loom for a new design that I will be releasing soon:
And, I am still working on my husband’s vest on the Structo Loom:
And…. I am working on several new tapestries in my series of ‘Woven Women’-
I have two ‘new to me’ looms that I bought from other weavers who didn’t bond with them:
I am delighted with my ‘new to me’ Mirrix ‘Joni’ tapestry loom. I am just singing Joni’s praises!
I am loving working with her! Perfection!
At the same time that I bought Joni Mirrix, I spotted a little wooden tapestry loom on Kijiji, and happily bought her.
This is a very slow little loom to work with, as there are no built in shedding devices, just good old fashioned weaving swords and string heddles.
Even though, I quite love this little loom and am enjoying working on her.
And………… I am also working on a whole buncha other stuff, that I’ll be telling you more about later.
Until then, may the sun shine softly upon you!
