Being away for about a month is wonderful! I had such a good time with my family.
Coming home is just as good, but it sure takes awhile to get back into the swing of things.
I was so tired the first few days back!! I'm just now getting back into the rhythm of weaving and sewing! My project right now is for a piece to be in the members exhibit at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville. Every few years the Southern Highland Craft Guild has an exhibit for the members. This year it's called New Traditions: Wearable Art. It runs from Sept 11 til January 15.
I've woven fabric to make a jacket and it's already washed and ready to cut, serge and assemble! I spent Monday putting a narrow 9 inch, 3 yard warp onto my wolf pup and weaving it. I didn't take a picture of it because I forgot! I will use that fabric to make a small handbag to go with this jacket. Hopefully the finished product will do justice to the image in my mind!
The pieces have to be in Asheville by Sept 1!
Today school starts again for Maryville College where my DD goes. Life is back in full swing and it's good to be back into the rhythm of it all! Planning, however, is already in full swing for the trip to Canada next summer. Part of the fun of going is figuring out what to do and which projects to tackle once I'm up there!
