New Beginnings

Spring is a time of new beginnings.  We are blessed in our community to have a seed exchange hosted by one of the vendors at our local Farmer’s Market.  She and her family have been hosting the event for the last 5 years.  Every Spring we gather for a potluck, fellowship, gardening stories and tables set up in their garage with a wide array of seeds everyone has brought to share,

This year we brought several varieties of native plant seeds gathered form our own plants and the area.  In addition to the wealth of seeds there were cabbage starts and onion sets that someone brought as well as raspberry canes.

After a sun-drenched afternoon we hurried home.  David went staright out into the back yard to put his newly acquired seedlings into one of the raised beds.  I watched from the window of my studio as I cut out fabric for 2 new quilting projects I have in process.

Life is truly a blessed event.

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who likes to weave fabric for clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf appeared on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Handwoven magazine. I invented the freeform overshot weaving technique with which I wove my Mermaid Scarf. I sell weaving patterns and instructional booklets in my Etsy shop. Visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens. Join my Facebook group Weave Along With Lisa Rayner for weaving instruction and inspiration. You'll also find Lisa Rayner Handwovens on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. I like complex patterns, hand dyed yarns, high quality fibers and customers who want me to make them something special. I am not a production weaver. All items are custom made.
