Cocoon

I feel like I am emerging from a cocoon.  In this case the cocoon was a 7 month long Pacific Northwest Winter – over 100 inches of rain since October and counting.  I really am grateful that the drought in the rest of California south if us has been declared over.  But I am more than ready for this long rainy winter to end.  The good news is that we are starting to get a few sun days in between stints of Spring showers.  Our yard is starting to come alive in flowers.  The camellias and native azaleas are blooming and so are the bluebells.

My English husband looks for these blooms each year to remind him of fields of them in his native Yorkshire when he was a boy.  Right now I am grateful to be sipping a glass of merlot as the sun baks through the clouds and lights up the corner windows as I write this.  Happy Spring all!!

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who sews my own clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin my own yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My recent claim to fame is my spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf on the Nov/Dec 2015 cover of Handwoven magazine. I have an eight shaft floor loom, eight shaft table loom, rigid heddle loom, inkle loom, backstrap loom, a pack of cards for card weaving, and a vintage tiny rigid heddle Weave Easy Hand Loom. Occasionally I will post about other crafts I make, especially ones involving sea shells. I belong to many Facebook weaving, spinning, dyeing & knitting groups. My two kitties Pablo and Sasha are littermates. My sister rescues homeless cats in San Diego and my sweet kitties were born at just the right time for me to adopt them. They enjoy my fiber arts endeavors as much as I do.
