Wondrous Wednesdays: Guess what day it is….

okay, okay it is NOT Wednesday!

Let’s just move past that…

If my plight was that of being warped last week, this week, I am all strung out…

and ready to string the loom, that is.

The warp is wound.

I loved the feel of the lanolin as it flew through my fingers on the warping board; each yarn, a different fiber construct.  The anticipation for stringing truly left me all strung out…

The plan is to sleigh the reed on Friday, thread the heddles and finish the prep on Saturday. With the hope of enough physical energy, Monday I will begin to weave.

A little info on the yarns:

  • the warp consists of alpaca/silk (grey), bamboo (taupe) and silk (cream)
  • the weft will be alpaca, silk and merino

Here I go!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
