I have tried weaving once when I was a teenager and I absolutely loved it.;) xo

I recognise that expression, I see it reflected in the monitor when I've got twenty layers open and been too idle to name them. What the hell's that one do!!

That was a charming post. I look forward to the result.

Greetings from London.

Hurrah! for finding what you should be doing! I am happy for you! Weaving is such a cool thing as well!

Tara Thayer said...

Stiletto said...

Wow! Looks like a massive project to me involving many, many woman-hours. may you perservere.

Elizabeth said...

Just to see you so concentrated with a little smile, wonderful. It's a good time to try new things.

How wonderful! I can see this becoming addicting. What a fun thing to learn. Very sweet little post, as well. Put a smile on my face. :o)

I love the meditative nature of weaving. To me it's very Zen-like, getting into the rhythm of the shuttle going back and forth. But I confess I have no patience for dressing the loom. Hence, I'm a failed weaver. *sigh*

I've always wanted to do that because my mom told me that is is really FUN FUN FUN! Too cool! Love the pic...great angle.

I wove at camp one time. I really enjoyed it. I wish I could go back and do it again because right now, I fear it would be one more distraction and I don't want it to be a distraction.

Hey! I have a great idea. You can do it. And don't let it be a distraction for you. And I will feel...better.

we have a weaver's society here and they do such beautiful work, even spinning their own yarn.

yay for finding a calling

kristina said...

ooh, I'd love to learn that! great photos of you :-) hope norway is treating you ok!

Polly said...

you look very focused in that second one. are you sure you know what you're doing?

Just Jules said...

wow, um wow! that is a big commitment! can you rent the looms ;) I do know what you mean. I have sat at one and had a pro at my elbow. It is amazing - instant gratification. Looking forward to see what comes of this (are you sure you aren't just jet lagged?)

Optimistic Pessimist said...

i honestly can't wait to see what comes of this!

MW said...

That is so neat. I have always wanted to give that a whirl. I cannot wait to hear more.

cheekyketek said...

That looks like it could be either crazy-making or intensely therapeutic. Let us know which one, okay?

Loredana said...

Oh that looks like so much fun! Show us how it turned out when you're done.
