Preparing for next Christmas

Tonight I took down and stored away my Christmas decorations. But I am still in the holiday spirit. I just finished cutting hundreds of holiday paper into 1/2" stripes ready to fold into origami stars for garland to sell next Christmas. I am all prepared for being productive during the slow months to come.

Living Room

I was in the mood for something new on my turquoise blue wall in my living room. My hope is to sell this piece, Green to Blue Gold to Purple to Red Three Handwoven Panels. From my experience,(9 out of 14)I have sold a piece soon after hanging it up in my house.

New "Snow Covered" Scarves and my first snow globe

I just finished weaving this scarf that I call "Snow Covered with White Handwoven Scarf". While photographing it I couldn't resist showing off my first snow globe I have ever owned. For so long I have been turned off by the cheesiness of most snow globes until last Christmas. I found one at Target just like this one except it had a cardinal. I bought it for my mom as an anniversary gift. My parents are huge bird admirers.

So, I was excited to see this one for sale this Christmas season at Target. I have to admit, there is something magical about a delicate snow globe. Especially when watching your children enjoying one.

A new project pulling threads once again

Well, here I am again facing another complicating piece once again. More than 1400 threads in the warp and half of them I am pulling them one by one down the weaving. What you see here is eight hours of work just pulling threads.
