The countdown is beginning. The second to last set of scarves is on the loom. One more round of measuring warp, dressing the loom and weaving and the collection of scarves will be complete. I am so looking forward to opening the shop again. I even have a few surprises planned as part of the celebration…

peg loom - pirtti handwoven

I have a little visitor in my studio most days. Lately, she’s been quite quiet, hard at work. She’s mastering the potholder loom. (You can purchase a Harrisville potholder loom here.) The key to a young one weaving by herself is only using 2 colors in the warp. That way it’s easier to see which colors stay “up” while the other ones stay “down”. I’m going to re-warp her two shaft Micki toy loom the same way. I love having another weaver in the family!

One of the first group of ladies I met when I moved to the west coast was the San Francisco Mompreneur’s. They’ve been a support group, a feedback forum, and overall, a very interesting group of people. I am absolutely delighted to be featured (particularly since it is also my birthday month) as the May Mompreneur. You can read the entire interview and catch a glimpse of a day in the life with one of my two children here.

I’m having one of those days where I am looking at my designs and deciding that it’s wrong. All wrong.

But it’s not wrong. I’ve just organically grown into a new idea. It’s one of the pitfalls of working slowly. Without mistakes or troubleshooting, we would never grow. So I’m keeping that in mind as I swear under my breath and deal with the disappointment of feeling like I should start from scratch. Who knows, after a walk, some fresh air, a rest, I may feel it is worth it to keep trudging along. Either way, a new thought bubble has appeared which means that my creative brain is still working. And that is a good thing.

The brake.

Brake catch.


I did something that I normally wouldn’t – I published a post and then deleted it. This is the updated post – I just think the photos speak for themselves!
