oh where oh where have u gone?

I'm back in the studio...after 2 years of baby raising. Darling son is now old enough to come in with me and keep busy playing in the all the yarn - and in the loom.

Christmas sales are fast approaching. It's the last week of September and the first sale is November 5. This year I'm trying something new...scarves. I've made them before, so they're not new, new. But I've never focused so much time and energy into making them for a sales. My second decision was to limit myself to my yarn stash. So far so good. I'm on warp #4 and have one more ready to go after this one. Then I'll make some more warps and get working again.

I'm hoping to take photos later - it's a beautiful sunny September day.

Keep posted for those the very, very near future!!

Well, hello there!

my little helper

I have been away from this blog for far too long. It all comes down to not being in the studio. But now I'm back in. I finished my teaching degree this year and am now a supply teacher. To fill my time between supply calls, I'm weaving. The best part? My little guy likes to come in the studio with me to play at the "woom" (aka loom). He's a great helper.

September featured a piece of mine in an alumnae show at UNB, ars de centum.

So, I'm making scarves. Oodles and oodles of velvety scarves. I'm not usually a scarf weaver, but I am prepping for Christmas sales, and they are a good item to have on my table. They make a great, practical, fashionable gift.

Stay tuned to see what's new!
