The Beginning of it all

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

I have been persuaded (thanks Kate) to start this blog to show some things that I make, sew, knit, or otherwise create...I have lots of skills, but don't really concentrate on any one area.

I have my Grandmother's loom, a floor loom that is really big and takes up most of my spare bedroom which we now call the sewing room. I have not recently done any weaving because I need to warp the loom, which is a huge undertaking, so no current projects there.

I also have a serger sewing machine (Baby Lock Imagine) and a really nice Pfaff quilting machine which I use for regular sewing tasks. I have been sewing a lot lately because I have been off work because of a back injury. My sewing machines are now in my living room (thanks to my niece Ruth and my sister Carol who carried them downstairs), so it is very convenient to sit and sew for a while.

I have also been knitting a lot son had baseball tryouts a few weeks ago and I would sit and wait for him in the car and knit while I was watching him tryout.

I will post photos as I can to show you my endeavors!
