Not Just Fun

When you sit down and really think about the things you do and learn, sometimes it truly hits home that once upon a time, the things you consider fun were once essential life skills that made a difference in how people survived and at what level they did so. I love the fiber arts–we know this. […]

It Begins

The tool collecting, that is. I counted up my current batch of tatting shuttles today, and there are eight at present, with four others that have not yet arrived. So that really means twelve. But what sits in front of me right now, right this minute, are eight. Four Clovers, one Aerlit, one Banyek, one horn, […]

HA!!! YES!! Thanks to Gerald Findley’s book, I’ve managed to start a finger woven chevron pattern, which is the same pattern I tried when I made the initial running-before-walking mistake. When I tried it the first time, I couldn’t get it right because I was doing it from a YouTube video and books that were […]
