Keeping in mind my goal of posting more often, here’s a little preview of what I’m working on, plus a little tip. I finally got a gripper frame and I love it. The problem is when working on smaller pieces you waste your weaver’s cloth. So this picture shows two projects in process. It delays the end time, but saves cloth. A tip I remember from Rebecca at A Simple Quiet: keep your weavers cloth scraps and use them to stuff 3D pieces. Happy Friday to all of you still punching in every day.
It is such an accomplishment to put the final touches to the pieces patiently waiting. I still have a number of pieces to get to. Also I’m managing two posts in two days.
These little bunnies are racing to Mr. Magregor’s garden. Better protect those carrots! Thank you to Cathy Sower for the sketch she so generously gave me.
I was hoping to find a little bench or perhaps some oil cans. No luck, but I did score these great frames. They measure three by six inches. Now I need to think of something to punch and frame.
Well, Ground Hog Day has come and gone and we find ourselves with six more weeks of covid, I mean winter. Back in the day growing up in the far north county of Keweenaw we were always happy that it was only six more weeks of winter. I hope you are all doing well and making it through these times. My husband, a veteran has been vaccinated at the VA hospital. Being in that over-65 category, I’m lucky to have one scheduled for March 5. I’m counting the days like its a vacation coming up. With age comes some perks, I guess. You need to balance all that time you spend looking for your glasses or trying to remember why you just came into the kitchen.
On to happier conversation. I continue to love my punching and have a few things to share with you. It looks pretty white and snowy outside, so I did some flower bowl fillers. They are stuffed with balsam, one of my favorite scents’
These little doorknob hangers and patriotic sheep are on their way to Spring Run Farm in Lowell, Indiana. These are my drawings as well as the bowl fillers above.
I really enjoyed working on The Patriot, a pattern from Colleen King Colaizzi. I learned a new method of finishing and for my first attempt, I think it worked out pretty well. In the background you see Lori RIppey’s horse with jingle bells. Guess you can tell I like horses.
I have another little spring chicken almost completed. I hope to have new pictures in a couple days. Enjoy your week. I’m about to visit the Sunday morning flea market at our local Farmers Market. I hope I find some goodies.
