Crazy as a Loom

Weave, weave, weave.

Sydney says:

Where's Olivia???

Oh, Syd.  You look so sad.  She might not come today if it's going to rain.

 Wait.  Did you hear the door??

Yup.   It's her.

HEY Olivia.

Can't spend too much time schmoozing, got some weaving to do.

It's never too soon to be exposed to weaving.

You never know when a weaver is "in the making".

Oh, Olivia, you are too beautiful.

Today might have been gray and gloomy, even rainy, but we were swimming in color, lots of it.
L and I made this 5'x7' cotton rug.
Sure to cheer anyone up.

These are the rugs that are just too much fun.   Since they are going up on my web site for sale, and they aren't being made for someone specifically, we got to choose whatever colors we wanted.
Takes the pressure off.
And who needs pressure.
Not me.

I love the colours in that rug. Just beautiful. And then there's Syndey. Just beautiful. And Olivia? Perfection. That little one is a heart-melter. How do you keep from constantly kissing those cheeks? Either set. :)

You take so many amazing photos but the first one in this post of Sydney is amazing. The colors pop and the shift of his eyes is just fantastic! I hope you get some relief from these headaches soon.

Welcome to my world.
