A Soprano's view of life, music, and handcrafts
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.
A journey toward a nomadic life.
