This is what I want to do when I grow up!

Run away and join a tapestry weaver!! Much more suitable to my INFJ personality type than running away to joining the circus (which did cross my mind when reading Water for Elephants!)

Meanwhile, I think this is the last of the birthday presents.....


The book is beautifully done with good images of the samples and comprehensive documentation. It doesn't replace Marguerite Davidson's Handweaver's Pattern Book, but it's a wonderful companion to it! Anne Dixon has done a wonderful job in this work.

I have been setting the stage to make room for more weaving in my life. That means stepping back from a leadership position at church and a few other things. It will take a few months for the transition to occur. Meanwhile, I've sent in my deposit for a Jason Collingwood workshop in April. All three of the harness looms and the tapestry loom have warps on them which need to be woven off during this "latent" stage.

Now to stay focused and not get sucked into some other volunteer activity.

  1. Wow - thanks for the link to Marilyn's blog. What a fantastic artist and delightful person. I couldn't stop reading and finally subscribed to her blog in my Bloglines so I can find it again. I got back to May and when I have more time, will keep going. No wonder you want to be her apprentice. Wow-Wow-Wow!!!!

  3. Oooh!! I want to run away and join a tapestry weaver! What a great site. Tapestry weaving is another thing on my long list of things I want to do before I grow up.

    I'll put Water for Elephants next on my list of books to read. I can't wait!
