trying again...

I don't know where my head is at the moment - not where it should be that's for sure. I warped up a frame to weave this piece on Tuesday, started weaving and only then realised that the frame wasn't big enough. I have just warped up a bigger frame and am about to try again.

I was cheered yesterday however to get a comment from Else who bought a piece last year at Origin - she said she treasures it. We make things, people buy them and that's often the end of it so I was very glad to know she's happy with her purchase and not thinking 'damn I could have got a really nice pair of shoes instead'!!

bin (or in french, poubelle)

This is a picture of an appalling little piece of weaving on it's way to the bin.... Why after over 20 years can I not see when something is a) not worth weaving, b) not suitable for weaving and c) do it anyway?

I have a card on my pinboard of a doughty looking woman holding a tea cup, it says 'With a cup of tea in your hand, anything is possible'. I've made one and we shall see...
