YARN LOVE – a song

Well, this is a bit out of my territory but a fun thing ( I hope) for everyone who loves yarn. Whether you knit or crochet, spin or weave, this song is for you! But first...a little back story...💖 I have the privilege of teaching ongoing small groups of women who knit and crochet. Several … Continue reading YARN LOVE – a song

Twist

I've been mulling over, spinning 'round in my head and heart, a thought. I don't know if I read it somewhere, or if it just floated into my head like a bit of woolly fluff. It's one of those thoughts that brings both a sigh and solace. It winds and weaves its way into the … Continue reading Twist

“I Will Never…”

I should have known better. It's happened a couple of times before. I said it years ago..."I will never knit socks." And then, somehow (I honestly don't remember what made me pick up teeny tiny needles and start knitting my first sock) I found myself knitting pairs of socks one right after the other. So … Continue reading “I Will Never…”

Filaments of Light

What is it about spinning? The wonder...the allure? Can someone even explain why? I will attempt to do so here, but at the end of it all...this fascination baffles me. From a certain viewpoint, taking fluff of various kinds and turning it into string seems incredibly strange, silly and perhaps even nonsensical. You know how … Continue reading Filaments of Light

Not Much & Everything

I'm popping in to say...well...not much. I just want to post. To touch base here on my blog, to any and all who might be visiting. To say life is grand when making things is heading in directions you love. To say that even when life isn't so grand, making things makes it more tolerable, … Continue reading Not Much & Everything

‘Round the World & Going Again

When I was a young girl, my dad had a sing-song chant he would say every now and then: Jennifer, Jennifer my girlfriend... 'Round the world and goin' again! I loved this little ditty and I looked forward to actually traveling around the world someday. Though I have not traveled nearly as much as I … Continue reading ‘Round the World & Going Again

Spinning My Wheels

I sit at a wheel running hither and yon over miles of asphalt ribbon Some so worn and shredded with potholes my car can scarcely bear the beating. *** Mile after mile, driving me from word to endless words.. I can hardly think, let alone tap into any source of light, joy, meaning. I sit … Continue reading Spinning My Wheels

A Return to Weaving

It was a year ago, just after finishing a series of nine tapestry weavings for Lent through Easter, that I packed up my weaving supplies and had no intention of revisiting them. I remember wondering why this was so. What had begun in January of 2017 as a total and complete love of weaving  (which … Continue reading A Return to Weaving

What if….?

What if you could create for just 7 days, a mere week of your life, and at the end of the week have a small series of works that hold together, have taught you a lot, and bring a smile to your face? And what if you didn't have to go anywhere or pay lots … Continue reading What if….?

Fiber As Medium

Making lines with a pen is grand. Splashing on a little watercolor is divine. But drawing and painting with fibers seems to take artistic expression to a different plane altogether. Freeform crochet allows me to create lines for sure. As I choose the yarns in all their varied colors and textures, it's as if my … Continue reading Fiber As Medium
