I thought I’d post a little catch up since my dad (of all people) has been complaining that I’m not posting often enough anymore.
I’ve been insanely busy for the last several months. In October I left my relationship, my house, and my puppies, which was of course, incredibly difficult. I got an adorable new place (a two story garage apartment, so I still have a craft room) and started dating again (and have since met someone fantastic). Since June I’ve been the Vice President of my weaving guild which is the position in charge of organizing all of our monthly programs. Then in the fall our President had a family emergency that required her leaving the state, so I’ve taken on her responsibilities of running the regular meetings and the board meetings too. In January I returned to my night job for an additional 12 hours a week. Plus I’ve been writing articles for a group library blog and making sure to make time to see my friends. I feel like there’s more, but I guess that’s plenty. So with all of that going on, crafting time has been scarce.
But there’s a weaving conference coming up and I was determined to have my skirt finished for the fashion show. (Scroll through the posts marked weaving for pictures of the fabric being woven.) I was up until 3am on Tuesday to make the postmark date.
I also picked up some fabric at a local shop’s going out of business sale. I think I’m a little shy of 2 yards. I just bought what was left on the bolt. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, but I’ve always loved bandanna fabric.
And I’ve been working on my dishcloth a little at some weaving guild events:
I forget if I mentioned it, but I got that yarn from a shop during a yarn crawl. Here was the rest of my haul that day:
