Warping Galore

Little Harrisville Designs at home...

Weavebird (and warping board) at studio...

LeClerc Colonial at studio.

Notice a theme here? Three looms and I'm in the process of warping *all* of them! LOL! (My thought was that, usually, I'd be warping/threading on one or so, weaving on others, so there's always something different to do, right? Not so, apparently!)

I'm under the gun, big time, and it's my own fault... I'm delivering an order to Art & Soul in Maynard this weekend, I'm going to be participating (by invitation, whoot!) in the deCordova Museum's Artists' Market and need to deliver a whole bunch of items by the end of the month, I've got a show in Holliston in late-ish November, the Winter Lights show at the Loading Dock Gallery at WAS in late November - December (even though I'm not listed on their webpage at the moment, hmph), and then two weekend-long Open Studios at WAS in December! Oh, and I need to follow up with 13 Forest, a gallery in Arlington, too. And my second lecture for the New Hampshire Weavers' Guild is in two weeks. Ahhhhh!!!!

Biting off a bit more than I can chew is always a fabulous motivator for me. Obviously. (LOL!)

OK, here's something to get our minds off the stressful couple of months that are looming (har) (yes, pun intended).

Yay Fall! (Can't believe how big they're getting.)

And, on a happy personal front - Mr. SkiingWeaver and I celebrated out 9th anniversary this week (more like 16, actually, but we took a long time to get around to making it official). We actually went out. Together. Without the kids. Had a conversation without somebody interrupting every three minutes. Wow. Thank you, thank you, Mum, for watching them!!

Happy Anniversary!!! Jim and I took a long time to get married I still sometimes say things like "We've been together more than 20 years" or whatever. Even though we're coming up on our 15th anniversary - which isn't too shabby any more!!

You do have a lot going on. Hopefully that will mostly be motivating, not overwhelming.

I heard nothing but good comments from people who took your NHWG class last month. And I look forward to attending your class this month!! (I'm such an etsy newby. I placed my first order there today.)

See you in a few weeks!

Congrats on both the anniversary and the invite to the deCordova Museum. I grew up very near to them ( right across the Lincoln line in Wayland MA and can remember when they were very very small. Certainly not like they are today.Looks like a lot on your plate.
Happy , BUSY Autumn!
