The guild show is over, and it was a very successful venture. My stock of towels and möbius shawls is much depleted.
There are only 11 towels on my shelves, only because I didn't finish them in time to take them.
These turned out extra large.
DW aka Dirty White Boy, has warmed up to us quickly.
He now follows me around the yard, lets me pet him, and in the morning, he is at the door at 6am with the other two, waiting for breakfast.
He's very bony, and very obviously has not been neutered, but it's in his future, trust me.
Today I came in from outside, turned around, and he was in the dining room with me. He must have scooted through the door before it closed.
Thankfully, I got him outside before the three girls INSIDE saw him.
I think there would be war.
This is my new wall hanging, I have it over the couch. I bought it from a fellow weaver, at the guild show.
Those are twisted paper leaves hanging from the top. I love it.
I put together a warping trapeze, with L's help. We tried putting a warp on with it, but I did a lousy job of spreading the warp in the raddle, and we finally gave it up.
We'll try it again one of these days, and hopefully we will have better luck.
New warp on the AVL, this is going to be shawls.
My time weaving baby wraps has come to an end. It was nice while it lasted, but new regulations are making it impossible for small businesses like mine to make any money. The testing requirements are expensive and, in my opinion, cumbersome.
Too much trouble.
2018 is going to be a year of weaving just what I want.
I got sucked into the baby wrap world, it was fun for a while, but exhausting, too.
It's not what I want in my life right now, so the regulations have really made it easy to bow out.
Quiet days, weaving in my studio, that's perfect.
I don't really need much, I don't really want much.
I have a great family, and good friends.
I love my home.
I have lots of toys in my studio to keep me occupied and focused.
My "wish" of course, is a headache that I can live with.
It seems so simple.
But I know that it's not.
