Traveling

Sometimes the decisions you make out of necessity, like choosing a career when you are a single parent to three to become a teacher  make sense in the summer when you have time off to enjoy your children.  I used to hate to give up my summers not because I had to go back to work, it meant my kids had to go back to school and our fun days were coming to an end.  Now that they are grown I plan what I might do during the time off and again I am spending it having fun with my children and grandchildren.
This summer a trip from the south to the north to visit Detroit, and then off to Europe.

Weaving again!


Created a sample weaving to show my students. I used cotton and wool yarns in this piece.  I decided to stitch it up as a small bag and braided a long handle. The fringe on the bottom of the piece was known knotted into the work as if was being woven.
