T minus 3


The countdown is on. T minus 3 days until I am no longer working.  I’m a little sad but also very happy. I’m going to miss making the software a better product and finding errors, but I’m going to have more time for doing the things I want to do.  Even if cleaning house is one of them.

I had lunch with a weaving friend last week. I always come away from our lunches so inspired by the work she’s done. Every time, I find myself wanting to do something like hers.  This time was no exception. She had some beautiful scarves and the iridescence in them was.. Oh My!  I’m planning my first projects, after the work thing is done, to be the same. I don’t have the same colors she used and even if I did, I probably wouldn’t copy them exactly.  I need those iridescent scarves though.  I hope mine turn out as pretty as hers.

I’m also planning to try my hand at woven wraps for babywearing.  This is going to take some time.  I’ll have to do some sampling to make sure I have the sett and structure right. I think I’ll be able to do them with no problems because I’ve done a bit of research on how they need to be, and also what babywearers expect and need.

I’m looking forward to having the time to make some things for our guild sale next year. Every year, I say I’m going to weave something to put in the sale, and every year, I fall short.  This year will be different. (Famous last words!) I don’t want to have a weaving business, but we only need so many towels and they’re my favorite thing to weave, so a few for the guild sale should let me scratch the towel itch and possibly make a few dollars as a perk.

    If you need some help from an experienced babywearer or someone to test please feel free to let me know, I’d love too 🙂
