What's weavin'? 

What's weavin'? 

When I first started the blog, I only focused on my weaving projects. And these days, I’m branching out to include “day in the life of an artist” types of stories. But, I don’t want to cut out all the fun weaving going on simultaneously! So, I think the plan will be to sprinkle projects in randomly, providing much needed color/pattern/texture into our lives. Yay! 

Last week, I wrapped up my green project on the demonstration loom. I had originally set it up for the American Craft Council Show in Atlanta in March. But, it’s been sitting around looking pretty ever since! So, I finally finished it!

I am about halfway through dressing the floor loom with a new project, which is always exciting! It’s a little red & sky blue action this time!

And that, my friends, is what’s weavin’! I’ll keep you posted on how things progress! 

How are your projects going?

    I, for one, am in favor of posts about weaving! It’s always so fun to see what others are doing at their looms!
