I've been spending my time these past few weeks, while in between work projects, weaving some new items to get ready for the next jurying process with Foothills Craft Guild and reorganizing my home office and studio. Whew!  Both are major jobs and so far, neither is completed.

Two of the 5 Jury pieces are done, the third just needs some fancy finishing, the fourth is on the loom, ready to start.  And finally, after changing my mind loads of times, I'm satisfied with the design I've made for the 5th piece.  All I need to do now, is wind the warp and get back to work.  :D

My office and studio project is now going as smoothly.  I'm still in the middle of pulling things out and trying to find a place for them.  So, I have a mess!  But, I found a very good blog that I now follow that is written very well and offers many great organization ideas:



Great ideas.  Now, how am I going to organize all of those pieces of fabric that I now have stored in boxes?  I want to be able to see them.  There are several great blogs out there on the subject.  I have quite a few new ideas on how to display while I store my stash.  I need to get them out where I can see what I have to play with, while at the same time put them somewhere out of my way. 


This is an old blog.  But, has some terrific ideas.

I must admit, I have a problem with fabric.  I have not only my own personal stash, but that of my mother, my mother-in-law, a couple of my aunts, and even my grandmother's  stash.   I am a fabric horder and am proud of it!

We were on TV today


WBIR Live at Five had a piece about the Tuesday Weavers today.  Everyone shown looked great.  Many of us, though, were in the Pottery room taking a class from Carol.  Why didn't we think to go out to sit at our looms while the video crew were there filiming?  Oh well.  Probably because
Carol's class was so good.  It's been 30 years since I took a weaving class!  I highly recommend taking a class every now and then.  :D
