I just realized that I’ve never posted this new guy to the blog. It has been a big hit and Randy is being kept busy in the shop. They are cute, don’t you think? Anyway, this is the loom the previous blocks were woven on, in case you were curious.

I’m trying to show these on Raverly but I don’t know how it works so this is just an experiment! lol But the samples are fun, anyway.
…wait a day or two. The sun is shining and it’s in the upper 70′s today but the forecast is for maybe more snow by Wednesday! Oh well… I took a photo for cousin of the really new, tight buds on the lilac. She said she wants to be up here when they bloom. I [...]
It’s also Randy’s birthday and since their job is laying out a foundation on a clay hillside, he got his BD off this year, too. They are calling for more precip tonight, but I hope we don’t get much more white stuff or trees are going to start breaking. They’ve started leafing out and a [...]

I’ve been looking for this painting for a couple of years. It won a second prize at the county fair in the ’90′s. It disappeared sometime there after and I’ve been looking for it for the last two years. I was sure I didn’t sell it but could not think what could have happened to [...]
Aren’t they pretty! Daughter Karen planted these when she was in high school and I look forward to them every year! There are other bulbs up and blooming around the yard as well but this is my favorite picture. It was nearly 70 degrees today! Got lots done today and even opened up the house, [...]
This is how I spent my birthday! Crocheting this scarf out of the denim strips that didn’t work for the shawl, it’s the stretch denim that proved to be too fragile for weaving. Worked fine here, tho I did add a blue carry-yarn with it. I also did laundry and oiled some looms. A pretty [...]
