A casual past time grown out of control ....

If my husband had his way, we would keep everything I ever made. He still has my first bean bag frog back from when we started dating. I was so excited when I finished it, I gave it to him instantly. Afterwards I realized I forgot to buy googly eyes for it. Under-stuffed and floppy, it's probably one of the most pathetic things I've ever created. It still sits on his desk to this day, blind and eyeless. He won't let me touch it!

Hand sewing. I'm pokey and it takes forever. Robert surprised me one year with a sewing machine for Valentines Day. I marveled at it and loved it and also ... never touched it. It intimidated me, and when I finally learned to use it (years later) I felt guilty. Too easy! Too fast!

I like to think I've come a long way since then. Sewing is not my forte, and I get conscience stricken whenever I use my sewing machine. My heart is really in weaving, spinning and knitting.

Inspiration for me comes in many forms. Sometimes its while flipping through a magazine, perusing through a book or just simply watching television. Every day life. I've even had it come in the form of a t-shirt that my daughter had outgrown and saved it simply for the color combination.

I am lucky to have the time and be able to follow wherever my vision takes me, and for that I am eternally grateful.
