Complex Weavers

The latest Complex Weavers Journal was in my mail yesterday, complete with the program and registration for the 2010 seminar, with my name in it! This is very exciting – I’ve been teaching for a long time, but this is my first time as instructor at a national conference. You should all come! The seminar […]

Amsterdam, Part II

And the second half of the Amsterdam highlight photos. See you tomorrow/next year!

Amsterdam, Part I

This happens every year: end-of-year hell. Last year the powers that be moved the end of the year from, well, the end of the year to the end of the fiscal year, which is different. I like this system better, since now crunch time doesn’t come during the holidays, but it’s still crunchy. You mean […]

Back. Exhausted.

Got home at 3:30 this morning, after an airline incident involving “precautionary fire trucks”. All was fine – that announcement from the pilot was the scariest part of the whole thing. The extra five hours was the worst part – that made the whole trip (bus, train, plane) a 24-hour marathon. It will take a […]

Friday photo-essay

I’m leaving for Amsterdam oh-so-early tomorrow morning. I’ve got my passport, plane tix and credit card – what more could a girl want? I’ve been trying to get a head start on the jet lag problem by getting up earlier and earlier. This hasn’t worked so well, since other obligations have prevented me from going […]

String Adventures

The Schlow Library demo was Monday evening. This year’s adult summer reading program theme is “Get creative at your library”, and Linda has been scheduling artists to give talks. I was listed as talking about the sheep-to-sweater process, but I thought there might be something more exciting than talking about spinning and knitting to a […]

Minnesota adventures

I’m having a bit of trouble with the photo card reader. Nothing that will result in losing precious images, but enough to make blogging annoying. I did get a few though, enough to give you all a feel for my brief vacation. Friends. The Famous Exploding Knife, annotated edition. My new buddy, Cabal the Wonder […]

Popping in

Er, hi. I’ve been on a Grand Tour of lower Michigan, and not blogging. (You may have noticed.) View Larger Map I have lots of photos from all around the state, and tales to go with them. A few from Grand Rapids are here, but you’ll have to wait for the rest, and for the […]

Tablet weaving class

A bit of advertising: There are still a few seats left at the weekend tablet weaving workshop hosted by the Butler County Spinners and Weavers Guild, March 21-22. I’ll be teaching a day of general tablet weaving – equipment, setup, following patterns, drafting simple patterns – with an emphasis on understanding how it all works. […]

Friday the thirteenth

I’m confused. Wednesday: record-breaking 64F temperatures. Thursday: 50 mile an hour winds. Friday: snow. But I saw the first tiny snowdrop shoot this morning, so perhaps it will settle down into spring sooner rather than later. The peanut gallery has been clamoring for a return of Friday photos. A quick dig in the archives found […]
