Remember this guy? It was recently featured in @stlouismag along with a couple of questions I answered about my process and inspiration, so now I can finally share a pic of it finished and hanging! 🎉
Today I enjoyed a much needed mental health day and finally took this off the loom! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but it was so much fun to make and I love how it turned out - especially considering I was just playing with scraps! ➰〰➰
I'm really feelin this dramatic, gloomy light in the studio today. It makes the piece I made with the wrong color yarn for a big order look so much better 😁🤗✨
Unpacked the new studio just enough to add a lil to this ol thing (not pictured: bags and bags and bags of yarn)
There are a lot of looms out there to choose from. It can be intimidating for people wanting to give weaving a shot if they don't know what will work for them just yet. That's why I've created an online class that is not only completely introductory, but also teaches how to make and use a loom from cardboard (I know you have some of that)!
I'm so excited to share this class with you that I've offered a select number of FREE sign ups and there are still 15 spots left! (http://skl.sh/2adBiKt)
And when the free spots fill up, there are still deals to be had, don't worry! You can sign up for 3 months of @skillshare premium for just $0.99 - this gives you unlimited access to my class, as well as thousands of others on the site! (http://skl.sh/2advqRl)
Thanks so much to @skillshare for asking me to challenge myself and helping so much along the way 💖 I hope you all enjoy the class!
With so little time to weave, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. I miss sitting with a loom and the hours flying by, but between full-time work and school, it's just not in the cards for me rn. I beat myself up about how little I've created this past year, but I need to remember the whole point of being this busy is so that a few years down the road, I'll be this busy with weaving. I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on everything positive I've experienced in my lull and thank those who have shown me kindness, been patient with me (when I certainly am not myself) and have empowered me as a person and maker. @theenamelproject @collingarrity @smackclay @fibreshare @ashleylthurman @ugly_hank @fableandlore @lonewolfcollective @emmysu @ak_stainedglass @shannonleighcraig @elliedaye @chaupmamai @beanweb @lydmarr @dbatp ... And seriously, the list goes on. Thank you 💖
