A lot has been going on lately and part of it is health issues and jumping through hoops with members of the medial community in order to have a relatively simple procedure done somewhere that doesn’t force me to wear a mask.
The best I can do lately is to keep my anxiety level in check and today it was a battle. I’m not particularly creative right now and even knitting is no comfort or interest to me.
I’ll be back to posting on a regular basis when I’m doing better. Take care, stay cool, and carry on, ya’ll.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
