I see from my blog list that so many of you have been busy weaving and dyeing this summer. Alas I have not! It has been a while since I posted mainly because I have been enjoying the coast and exploring many other things besides fiber.
We spent a month near Astoria, Oregon. It is an interesting town. The people who live there must be very hardy. The elements get pretty rough there, particularly in the winter. They have a wonderful maritime museum that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Then, there is the whole Lewis and Clark saga since they ended their epic trek on the coast there. I could probably make several posts about the rich history of the area.
We have relocated back to Cannon Beach. This morning while walking on the beach I came across this gentleman creating a labyrinth in the sand. It has been wonderful to rest and explore and get set for our next adventure.
Next month we do our final relocation down to Ashland where I have new fiber friends to meet. I will have a month before I start art school. I plan to start another blog dedicated to that journey. I expect my weaving blog will dwindle to a trickle but I hope to be able to keep my hand in. I certainly plan to incorporate fiber into my drawings. I will share those here too when they happen.
In the meantime, I am enjoying peeking at everyone's projects. They are wonderful to see and keep me going. Thanks! -Renee
