I have been making coffee cup sleeves for a friend who is planning on giving them away as holliday gifts and just finished them yesterday.  I wanted to take a couple pictures of them with our new camera since the whole lot of them looked so pretty together.   I love this new camera!

I am working on finishing up a series of all tonal white quilts heres a shot of some of them waiting to be worked on.

these quilts I made in the colors of the “national terror alert system” which is supposed to help us understand the state of risk we are in. to me this was the most ridiculous thing I had heard. I made these awkward sized quilts of different weight fabrics and batting equipped with different supplies one might need during the appropriate color of terror.

Here are some photos of the embroidery process I used to create the fleas.   I am changing the way I do this because I feel that these lose the feeling of hand made with how sewn they are. its very difficult to see the stitches in photo but its also difficult to see them in life since they are pretty dense, the next batch will be looser and have more of a hand quality.

I have been on the hunt for a small “portable” or table top loom ever since I took a weaving class several months ago. I really enjoyed weaving and think about it all the time but with little knowledge of looms and of weaving itself I didnt feel comfortable buying a new fancy loom. I had been searching craigs list and newspapers online with no luck. Well the other day I bumped into a woman who I have taken some fibers classes with a few years ago and mentioned to her that I was searching for an affordable table loom. she put me in touch with a good friend of hers who just so happened to have a Leclerc table loom in her garage that was lonely. This woman was so friendly and welcoming to me. She told me that she would be happy to loan this old loom to me so that I may become familiar with weaving and was just happy to have someone to love it again. She invited me to her home to pick it up and she talked to me about weaving and helped me to remember how to dress the loom, she is absolutely the nicest person I have met in years! The kind of person that makes you happy for days. So thank you Phillippa for being so generous, trusting and wonderful!!!! here are some photos of my new friend, I havent yet had the chance to dress him (Mr. Leclerc) but am hoping to do so next week or this weekend after the craft fair. I am so excited to start playing I just cant wait!!
