A Weaver's Heart - One Thousand Gifts

Image
Sorry I've been gone for so long. Life has been interfering with my blogging time. So much has happened since my last post that my head is still spinning lol. Every since I was ten years old I have wanted to do Floor loom weaving. I had gone on a field trip and a woman demonstrated Weaving and I was in love. I never took the time as I grew to follow that love until last weekend. I found the Reno Weavers Guild and joined then took a beginners class! Yay I love it. In June I take two more days to finish. Below is "Warping the Loom." Next month is Threading my loom and then weaving! I am sooooo excited :-)


You cannot tell by the look on my face that I am happy... I should have smiled bigger lol. This is a practice loom and I did pretty well for my first time ever weaving (I hope my arm doesn't break patting myself on the back) :-D
# 659 I had the best day... I can't wait until I've saved enough to purchase my first loom

Pineapple Plant update

Image
First off let me apologize for not cleaning up before I took the pictures below, I was tired and had replanted all my indoor plants. Here is this plant when it first started. It's really growing large and fast so I needed to re-pot it. I still have about two years to go before it fruits! I am so excited
Look at those roots! Looks like a nice healthy pineapple plant!

Plarn Mats

Image
I think that my mother is so clever! She is spending time making Plarn Mat's that can be used for camping, or for the many homeless people here in Reno. It's my mothers goal to hand these out to those who sleep under the night sky along with other useful items. The plarn mat is a very light weight material and another plus in making these mat are that she is up-cycling plastic bags keeping them out of the land fill. Way to go mom! I love it
