Major Pile Up in San Diego

That title ought to get us some Google action, eh? Actually, I did have a very nice drive down and back. Spring was evident the whole length of the state; orchards beginning to bloom, vineyards, orange groves, that very lovely green of alfalfa, and yes, rolling green hills.

There has been weaving:

SD Anna

I like this photo a lot, because it shows the looms in action, both upright and as a lap loom. It also shows Anna, truffle maker extraordinaire, Deanna, erstwhile hostess and program chair, and Judy is hidden! Judy? She who blogs last, laughs best :-).

We set up the looms:

SD Kristine

Then started tying knots:

SD Nancy

Which needed to be trimmed:

We worked (and ate) our way through two days. And the winner is?

SD Phil's loom

Phil. We really did not have a contest on who could weave the most. But Phil wins. His partner Kristine?

SD Kristine's loom

Not so much. Can this marriage be saved?

LOL!!! Thank you for a wonderful workshop and a great guild program. I'm still getting lots of good feedback. And, I am really enjoying this technique, though I have to pace myself so my hands and arms don't hurt. I bought some nippers yesterday - Mundial was what they had at the fabric store. They are okay - very lightweight, but I discovered I needed to use thumb pressure on the side to get them to actually clip well. That's what happens when you don't have patience to look elsewhere for better quality. :-)

Missed you when you left! Hope the rest of your trip went well.

That looks like it was fun! And so good to see those looms in action. Almost makes me wonder why I buy Mirrix looms. Hmm. I could actually use a very small sample loom. Again: Hmm.
