Crazy as a Loom

Time for a break

L and I have been busting our butts with shows. I don’t know if she’s as exhausted as I am,

But truly, I’m fried.

In between shows, I’ve been cleaning, downsizing, and organizing.

Inside porch/dyeing room is looking so much nicer. New flooring.



DH is a hoarder wannabe. He procures minutia and I get rid of it.

It’s a fine balance, ongoing.

This week I said goodbye to another kitty, sweet Jinxie. Always a little  a lot terrified and feral, with some kind of spinal issue that got worse every year, she still had the sweetest way about her.

I already miss hearing her lurch through the upstairs.

It’s the real downside of loving your pet friends.

Made this Spicy Zucchini Soup/Chili that I got from blogger/FB friend Di, it’s awesome.

I just changed it up and used veg crumbles instead of sausage.


I made four of these Möbi Shrugs and sold all four as soon as they were finished.

So you can be sure these are on my list of things to do.


Busy week around here, having a tree in the front yard taken down.  Nerve wracking, close to the house the power lines, fencing.  I breathed a sigh of relief when they were finished.

Yesterday was the last show until the end of September.

This was in Speculator, NY, on Lake Pleasant. Beautiful summer day in the Adirondacks.


Unfortunately, it got very hot in the afternoon, and my head doesn’t care for the heat.

So by the time I got home, I had the HFH, you got it......the headache from hell.

I can’t wait til my appt in Sept to get approved for MM ( medical marijuana)

I don’t want to take it  every day but I would love to have something that really worked when those 

headaches  come along.

Sounds like heaven.

I say it’s worth a try.

Definitely worth a try. I hear nothing but good about it for all manner of things. Sadly none of my problems! Your creations are lovely. Would love to be nearer to see them.

Love the whole concept of mobi shrugs. You are creative, indeed. And although I tend to stay away from earth tones, the one in this post is really lovely.

Hope the MM helps! September is just around the corner.

Yes, loving our furry friends is a trial when it comes to their leaving us. I hope Naya is doing well, you didn't mention her and that made me miss her. :-)

So glad you are going to give MM a try. It just might be the ticket! LOVE your new shrug...what a great use of beautiful handwoven cloth!

How fun the mobeius stays in fashion.

Aw, I'm so sorry about Jinxie. :-( (((hugs)))
The mobi-shrug is gorgeous. Is it one piece?

I hear you on the heat - I don't do well - hope the headache is subsiding. Hope you get the MM approved sooner rather than later. And hope it helps.
