I'm Patti and I live in Lacey, WA. I've been a spindle spinner for about two years, but now have purchased a table loom and am starting to weave. My first project--4 placemats and a runner, with mostly my handspun yarn.

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies ...

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople has imbedded in the program. I love the SparkPoints and the Teams. It's become a game with me to get as many points and do as much exercise as I can.

In August I walked my first 5K race. It was a big step from not being able to walk without a walker at the beginning of the year! And I realized that I've made my goal weight--so I'm now in Maintenance and am now taking on that challenge, too. So far I've been at weight for 3 months now and counting.

As the end of 2014 looms, I am so grateful for the ability to be active and for SparkPeople showing the way.

Hi, Patti! I thought of you last night when I attended the current exhibition at the San Antonio Museum of Art in San Antonio, Texas. On display were 14 of the original 18 tapestries that Nelson Rockefeller commissioned between 1955 and 1975, modeled after some of Pablo Picasso's most important works.

The exhibit was spectacular! Also on display was a loom, at which a local weaving group gives periodic demonstrations on the weaving process. They were not in attendance when I was there, but they are working on another small Picasso-inspired work. I wish you could see the exhibit!

This address probably won't be hot link, but here's the website if you'd like to know more about the tapestries:
