Hasn’t it been a long winter? In many ways beautiful, and in some ways lllooonnnngggg… I know I will better appreciate the spring when if comes!
So….no images of snow here! Just a few things that define my February.
Threaded and ready to begin a boundweave wall hanging on my wonderful hand-me-down Toika.
My 2-yr. old camellia blooming for the first time! A wonderful pink for these grey/white days. It’s called “Kramer’s Delight” and it is delighting me!
A frequent visitor to our woods, but my first success at catching him on film! (Actually, my husband’s success, not mine.)
A newly finished bracelet. Two rows of Right angle weave attached, beginning to end, to form a closed ring, then crystals are added. You can tell I was thinking of spring when I chose these colors!

I just watched this video three times. The woven image is beautiful and the filming is so well done. Marvelous! It makes me want to get my big Shannock warped!

You can't trust the sun
this time of year; it's bright light
holds a bitter cold
A scene from our recent trip to the vineyards on the North Fork of Long Island. We missed getting any photographs in sun, although it was sunny during part of our stay. I have an image in my head of rows of dark vines casting clear blue shadow patterns on the brilliantly sunlit snow .

A friend of mine pointed out to me today that I have not posted a photo of my finished “Medieval Spinner.” I was certain I had….
Actually, I haven’t spent any time weaving tapestry for the past couple of months. I have been decidedly ‘under the weather.’
Today I had to miss my class with Archie and Susan due having quite a bad cough left over from my recent bout with the flu.
So I spent some time working on an unfinished tapestry and making plans for my next tapestry warp.
I have to admit I am pretty intimidated by my never-used Shannock loom. The heddles need to be re-made, and I’m not sure I can figure that out. I know I can use the loom without the heddles, but….
If I can conquer my fears, maybe I can get the full sized Medieval spinner warped this weekend.
Can you see her? I can just barely see her if I ‘bigify.’
