Another week full of interesting people, things and , of coarse, weaving. Here I am laughing it up at "Early Days" in San Juan Bautista with living history friends last weekend.
And for my son's 25th birthday on Wednesday we had this wonderful disfunctional family get- together that bent all the rules of what "family" means. (How many ex-es can you put in one room together?) In this group we are all related somehow by choice or by chance. My 3 kids got to re-connect with their half-sister and her mom who are visiting from England, where they live. They have not been together for 9 years! Truly amazing to see how much my kids Loved their little sister!
I got this photo e-mailed to me by a man in Australia asking if I could make him a guitar strap like the one in the picture. What a challenge!I told him that I couldn't replicate the pattern exactly, but perhaps, catch the flavor.
Here is what I wove. I want to call it "Life is a Carnival" after the song by "The Band".
The colors are just like some sort of a festive event.Here is a fine article about choosing colors in WeaveZine.
This morning I started weaving another Celtic knot strap and then saw this article in WeaveZine about weaving knotwork on a larger scale. Beautiful!
Who knows what next week will bring.....
