BUT. I am here, and this blog has been on my mind, I am always wondering what is "blog worthy".
Our Winter was long and cold. But thankfully not as snowy as the northeast...
We renovated our awful kitchen!!
Then the ceiling in our front room needed to be replaced, the cracks were growing and it seemed a good idea...the plaster was barely touched by the guy and this whole section came tumbling down!
Now the room is all nicely lit with new can lights and has a brand new insulated ceiling! This is the room that my big loom now lives in. (Thank goodness we did this work before I started weaving in there...someone could have been hurt!) We need to paint the walls but I am still thinking about colors...
Why is my big loom at home? And not at LibertyTown? Well I finally made the decision to move all my working spaces home. (There is still a selection of my work in the gallery) I spend more time throwing pottery out back these days, and when I have an hour or two to weave I just wasn't heading out to the Gallery. Now I spend all my creative moments at the house. With Layla.
She's 14 you know! The reno really stressed her out (though you can't tell from this picture!)
So what have I been working on? I did attend a weaving workshop on weaving figures into your weaving, an interesting boundweave technique.
Weaving some crazy happy bright towels at my little loom...
And I have been slowly getting ready for my next show on Saturday April 25! Good grief this coming Saturday! I am not a production style potter so I start my preparations months in advance....but if you are interested in these sweet new bud vases...
....come by the Powhatan Festival of Fiber this Saturday!
And hopefully I won't wait 4 months to post on this poor blog again.
