SO Unfair!

Just since posting earlier, I have come across yet another fiber art that intrigues me: ply split braiding! I don’t know much about it…yet…but I know I need a tool called a gripfid, and I know there are books and tutorials available, and that there are beautiful, beautiful examples of it on Pinterest, and that […]

The Explosion

I have a herd of shuttles now. Or is that a flock? A pack? A pod? I’m not sure of the proper terminology for a ton of tatting shuttles. But there are an awful lot of them, and yes, I did add another abalone shell, and another horn to even out the numbers. I still […]

Quiet days

It’s been very quiet around here since we euthanized Mac. Aneira finally knows what happened, primarily because the humane society called me the next afternoon to tell me they hadn’t euthanized him yet. They needed me to come down and fill out forms about rabies testing, and Aneira walked in during that conversation. So he was […]

Malayko 6/6/07 – 7/13/16

The house feels a little bit emptier tonight. Today, Malayko, Aneira’s German Shepherd mix, crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It wasn’t something anyone wanted to do. It was something we had to do, as responsible dog owners. You see, on July 4th, Mac nipped at our Bryony, but later that day also went after the Malamute twice. […]

Precious Memory

Once upon a time, I was a huge sports fan. I grew up in the era of Joe Namath on the Jets, Lee Mazzilli on the Mets, Bucky Dent on the Yankees, and the Islanders were awesome. But I also grew up with a dad who had very definite ideas on what girls did and […]

Quick project and studio SOS

That’s what I was in the mood for tonight, something I could start and finish in a matter of thirty minutes. I haven’t touched my kumihimo supplies in a good, long while, but I had a pattern I wanted to try out. I know where my marudai is, and the thread, and the weighted tamas, […]

Cloisonné shuttles

After the ugliness of today and the tears that I’ve shed, and now the shooting of the eleven police officers in Dallas (how does that fix anything?? Two wrongs do not make a right!! Am I the only one whose parents beat that into my head?!), I have decided I need a break from it. I […]
