I'm Back!

Well, it has been a while! I apologize for the longer than anticipated absence. We have been busy getting our house on the market and it has been not only all-consuming, but grueling hard work. We do all the work ourselves rather than hire it out. Crazy, I know. Amazingly enough it all finally came together. There is still much to do but it is now listed and on the market!
I decided to keep my loom up and weave while waiting for the house to sell. I did this for two reasons. One is that it not only added to the ambiance of the house, it would keep me busy. The second reason is that as soon as I put a warp on it, the house is bound to sell. Sort of like if you bring an umbrella it probably won’t rain (we are in the Pacific Northwest) but forget to bring the umbrella and it will pour!
The last month or so has been one of saying our goodbyes. I had my final guild meeting of the year with the Skagit Valley Weavers Guild. I was president of the guild this past year and took advantage of having control over the microphone to say a proper goodbye. I know I am going to miss all my weaving friends very very much.
The picture above is one of many I took at the guild meeting. This was a loom controlled Ikat piece that Fran M. had woven and dyed. It not only looked beautiful but it looked like a lot of fun to weave.
The Monday after the guild meeting I went to my final spinning group meeting as well. I will have a few pictures of that and talk about what is going on the loom in the next post.
Summer is here at last! -Renee

I've been enjoying your blogs. What an exciting time to be moving on to new things. You will still be weaving won't you?
