Picking Up The Pieces

Here are the highlights of this post:

Please buy my loom!
Send me encouragement to finish projects
Come and help me stitch and sew and bundle

Is that too much to ask?  lol!  Well these are my wishes for today.

I'm starting to create in the studio again, sort of.  I still have not sold my loom and it's taking up the entire top of my work table so I really need to get it out of there!  I am waiting to hear from AVL this week to see if they are willing to buy it back from me.  Of course it will be a hugely reduced price because they will refurbish it and then resell it.  I understand this but if anyone wants to buy this loom in great shape for a fabulously low price please let me know!!!  I have had it listed in area weaving guild newsletters, craigslist, Facebook, etc. No takers.  I loved this loom and worked on it for many years, took good care of it too.  I just know after over 25 years of weaving I'm done.

Once the loom is gone I can have some space back to work.  In the meantime I feel a little scattered.  I dye printed some papers and tags to bundle with the fabrics I have also botanical and dyed printed to sell.  I have all this gathered but am stuck on how to bundle it.  Why? So instead of working to figure it out I go on to the next project ........... 


which is designing upcycled garments.  I have quite a few of these now with fabrics and lace dyed and even pinned onto the garments.  I just need to have a huge sewing day or five.  Anyone want to come work with me?

Seriously see all the pins?  See the garments with ideas pinned but possibilities still in the creating?  Lots of sewing ahead and to any of my friends who want to come to my studio and have a little job working for me a few days we can negotiated cost, etc. Lunch included, maybe some beverages?  If you don't want to sew you could help me make dye print bundles to have for sale!
Contact me!

I have a few pieces of needlepoint for you. Want/need tapestry pieces? Much of my stash is going to Goodwill.
Looking forward to our bike rides. Let's make it a monthly art date, with sketch journals, etc.
I passed your info on to my weaver friend, who passed it to her group. Good luck.
Xoxo Chris

I'm just now seeing your blog post since I haven't blogged myself for months =\ I wish I could come out to sew with you, but it's a long drive from Los Angeles to get to t I am glad to see you beginning to work again after your surgery and the bundles you are making look wonderful. I'll be checking your Etsy shop to see if they are listed for sale =)
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
