Today was a welcome relieve after non-stop activity since Sunday. I got about 16 inches of weaving done now (out of approximately 2 yards) and am enjoying trying out the different patterns. I've added some of my own yarns in lighter colors to ... Read more

Such an exciting day I can hardly settle down. First the "Inspire Your Creativity" Group did polymer clay. It was great! They are such crafty people to start with...give them a medium and they go wild. Then my Weaving Teacher came to l... Read more

My day is focused on the Super Bowl. I've watch the Seahawks all season and love to watch when Russell Wilson gets going. That will be my exercise today. Walking to the Senior Center (2 miles), taking my pot luck chocolate chip cookies (Spark... Read more
A Weaving Day

I had a weaving day all right! I am scheduled to take the Beginning Weavers class March 1-15 and so asked my friend Jane for the 4-harness loom (loaned to us from the Weavers Guild). She had just re-warped it to make a scarf, but couldn't do m... Read more

This was the first day of trying out the new menus. Of course, it's Wednesday and the end of the month. When I looked at the Menu I had made for Ed, the vegetable was wax beans. (He only likes a limited number of vegetables.) Not a can of wa... Read more

Polymer Clay

Today I took a class on Polymer Clay. The teacher brought lots and lots of clay--every color under the sun. Then she showed us how to mix them, lots of pictures of what could be made, and let us loose. I made a butterfly, a rose, and about a ... Read more
Tapestry Day

Today is the monthly meeting of our Tapestry Group. I didn't go because I didn't want to be gone for hours yet. Ed is doing better today than the last few days. Still, I like to be near. Besides, the TV computer repairman was coming. Now my... Read more
Scarf Day
Friday, January 23, 2015      5 comments

Today was the day to think about scarves. I was nervous. Ed had a relapse and has slept most of the last two days. I'm more anxious than usual, and found I wanted to eat, eat, eat. Instead, I made a scarf. My working "craft bag" with all my ... Read more
TV Troubles

I plan to make some stellar yarns this year and use them in my weaving. To do that, I'll use my spindles and learn to use this beautiful spinning wheel. Hope to convince my spinning teacher to take some money for the Spinning Wheel so it can be ... Read more
Olympia Meetup
Saturday, January 17, 2015      5 comments

Today was the Olympia WA Spark Meetup. I've advertised it on the Team Board for over a month. I had a few people who told me they wouldn't be able to make it. No one said they would be there. Still, I hoped.... Our Team has 288 people i... Read more
