Adventures in fostering...

It's difficult to weave with a 60lb foster puppy on your feet.

Do you know how difficult it is to weave with a 60lb foster puppy on your feet? Yeah.

I originally wove this cat blanket as a lap throw for myself. But both Morrigan and Miss Sassy started claiming it even before I'd finished tying the Phillipine edge on it.
Being made from border leicester wool and alpaca yarn , it's both soft and extra warm. Perfect for catnaps on my desk in front of a window.

This is a perfect example of why I do what I do- my husband thoroughly pleased with his 4th Doctor-esque handwoven #scarf . It's roughly 12 feet long and he proclaimed it perfect. Creating things that make others happy, makes me happy.

I tend to keep it simple in my photo set ups. Much of the time, I use my surroundings and since we've moved, Five Oaks has been an absolutely wonderful place to photograph my pieces. Currently I'm using the lovely pines out back as a backdrop for my woven pieces, such as this handwoven #shawl , "Water". For my #jewelry pieces, I have an antique slate roofing tile in a lovely dark grey that I use, as well as the cool grey cement of the front porch. I find simpler backgrounds make my pieces stand out more, allowing details to shine.

#CTMonthInTheLife, Day 14

Nearly halfway there! So far, so good...

The prompt for today is " Vignette"

Day 14 of the #ctmonthinthelife  #igchallenge @createandthrive , the #prompt is #vignette... This is a #workinprogress  look at a future #artquilt , combining #weaving with #fabric  The #layout is a general idea of what it may end up eventually looking li

This is a work in progress look at a future artquilt , combining weaving with fabric. The layout is a general idea of what it may end up eventually looking like as a wall hanging. Currently, I have finished the edge on the yellow woven square and have all but two of the woven green squares attached to each other, then need to finish the inside and outside edges. Then I'll figure out how exactly it'll look on the fabric, placement wise. Bright, funky colors that are out of my norm, I'm liking it.

#CTmonthinthelife day 3

Today's promt was 'Work In Progress'. I actually have three different projects in various stages of completion, so I did one for each.

#ctmonthinthelife  day 3- #workinprogress , part 1, since I actually have 3 projects going right now...  Playing around with some pin loom squares, eventually this will either become a light weight throw or a wall hanging.  @wildharefiber 100% merino #han

The first is a bunch of pin loom squares I'm working on. This will either become a wall hanging or maybe a lightweight throw if I decide I want to make lots more.}:P


#ctmonthinthelife  day 3, #workinprogress  part 3, since I actually have three projects in various stages of work... This one is a 7' shawl in progress on my large adjustable #triloom .  #handdyedyarn  by me, in 100% #merino. It's becoming decidedly plaid

The second is a 7' shawl on the big adjustable triangleloom. I'm using my own handdyed 100% merino wool yarn for this one. It's turning out decidedly plaid in patterning.


#ctmonthinthelife  day 3, part 2 of #workinprogress , since I actually have 3 projects going right now... This one is triple basketweave on my #rigidheddleloom . Eventually it should become an infinity scarf. @unplannedpeacock  #handdyedyarn Shimmer 50/50

The third is a triple basket weave on my rigidheddle. Eventually it will hopefully become an infinity scarf. 50/50 silk/merino blend yarn, it's so stupid silky soft.
