We had a wonderful Christmas! The day was made brighter by Craftgossip.com and their readers, who put sales of Nancy’s ColorPlay bag over the 150 mark. I matched all contributions and sent a check for $600 to Doctors without Borders. I hope that sales continue into 2015, and we can keep the contributions coming. Christmas […]Continue Reading...

Christmas? Who has time for Christmas! Here is what I’ve been doing… Progress report! We are up to 147 sales of Nancy’s colorplay bag, and I am hoping to reach 150 this week.

It’s Christmas central at my house, as Christmas gifts are flying off my smaller looms. I find weaving very satisfying and am loving every minute. My big box of yarn arrived from WEBS yesterday, and I cast on for the A-line tunic in Kureyon. This is going to be a quick, fun knit. That’s good, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I am a fortunate person in that I have friends – people whom I love and who love me, and we support each other. I never, ever take that for granted. I thought of this today as I finished up the 3 weaving projects I’ve been working on. Currently taking a bath, waiting for wet-finishing, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

There have been good reasons for this, but when I was knitting only to please myself I was generally drawn to larger projects: sweaters, afghans, and more sweaters. I don’t really […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Also progress on some projects, and a few new ones being planned. Here is a report! First, remember the Astoria sock KAL idea, with A Hundred […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
My mailbox is stuffed with bargains/coupons/ads, etc, as the Christmas shopping season is in full swing. Let’s face it, none of us really needs anything, but if you are going to give Christmas presents (and of course, we are) it might as well be something that will be personal, fun, and support the fiber community […]Continue Reading...

I am in love. Unexpected, giddy love. I was ordering stuff for the Baby Wolf from Webs, and as long as I was clicking away, the Zoom Loom somehow jumped into my shopping cart. Yesterday I got it out and started to experiment with it. The world fell away, and hours later I was still […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This has been a busy, tough week at the office for Dr. Anne. But today is Saturday, with nothing on the calendar. Whee! A chance to take stock of everything I have been doing, and assess progress. I finished the pillow fabric I’ve been weaving on the floor loom. When I took it off the […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I want to remind you about Nancy’s ColorPlay Bag. The pattern is $2, all of which will be donated to Doctors without Borders. This bag is a terrific stash-buster and is fast and easy to make and felt. All instructions are in the pattern, so that you can concentrate on playing with color. The bags […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.
