Wow, last post I was writing about a heat wave. Now here we are in the middle of one of the coolest Augusts in history. I'm not complaining, mind you. It's great weather for working outside.
However, last week there wasn't much outside work happening because I was at the Michigan League of Handweavers bienniel conference. It was a jam packed 5 days! I took Robyn Spady's "Block Party" workshop Wed. thru Fri. No pictures to share on that right now. I still haven't fully unpacked the loom that I was working on....next post.
Then Friday night was the fashion show. At the urging of some guild friends I entered the purse from this post into the fashion accessories category. Am so glad I did:
Zoom Loom from Schacht. Thanks so much to Schacht for donating prizes which help support our exhibits and events. But best of all: The bag won a People's Choice Award in the Fashion Accessories category, a $50 prize. Woot! Thanks to my "peeps" for the votes! I am honored.
Saturday I took an all day Band Texting cardweaving class with John Malarkey:
So with conference out of the way, I have officially run out of excuses to not wash the windows and screens on the house. Just as well, the spiders have been busy making their late summer mess on many of the window sills. I'll be working on coming to an agreement on tenancy with them this weekend while getting the screens clean and the windows shiny.....unless it rains. Then I will be weaving......
