Crazy as a Loom

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Finally, blogger let me publish.

Last week was a busy week, getting ready for the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival.
Set up was Friday, we were there all weekend, and Monday was spent putting the shop back together.

It was a nice weekend, the weather was gorgeous, and there were a lot of people out and about.

My friend and fellow weaver, Sue, demonstrated the band loom on Saturday.

 On Sunday, I did the demo, except when my grandgirl Ava took over for me.

She is my one hope that someone in my family will actually be a weaver.  She really is a natural.

Speaking of band looms.   I have TWO Glimakra Swedish band looms in the shop, in case anyone needs a new hobby.
They are wicked fun, and addictive.   I love mine.  I have made a guitar strap, a belt, some key fobs, and I'm not done yet!

My daughter, who was helping also, was very happy to see her niece, baby Dale.

Life is hard sometimes....really hard.

But I am grateful beyond belief.....for my incredible family, my friends, my life.
Every day is a gift.

YOU are a gift to us Hilary. You have no idea how much I admire your ability to keep on, keeping on. Love the photos and seeing your granddaughter at one of your looms! How I wish I could come and weave along with you (with proper instruction of course). Beautiful!

I am so sorry to have missed the Festival. The weekend was the only opening my farm sitter had, so there you go. Glad the weather was nice - and it looks like you had wonderful (and adorable) helpers.

Your booth is beautiful! Looks like such a wonderful festival and hope you did well. Hilary, whenever I think of you, you're tucked into prayer. Yes, life is hard but God is good, so very, very good. xoxo

Dale is adorable.. always a joy to see her. But Ava.. what a cutie. I love the concentration in her face.. and her sense of style.. boots and shorts. Gotta love that. :)
