Things have been crazy since the end of July. I have been doing a lot more walking everyday. I still drink my water.
Last week I learn a little bit of loom weaving. This week I am learning to weave with an Inkle weaving loom. I like this loom better because it is smaller. I have been spending a lot of time at a place for local artists called Heartside. Because I can knit & crochet & do a little loom weaving I am considered one of their Fiber Arts Artists. There are about 15-20 of us. They also have woodworking, pottery, & painting & drawing. They have an entry in Art Prize. They are in the running for one of the top prizes.
Heartside is supported by donations that people give to them. The Fiber Arts department was recently given a donation that included a knitting project that was almost finished. We figured out how to finish it & then we are going to decorate it, line it, give it a strap & turn it in to a messenger bag type purse & out it in the case at Heartside to be sold with my name on it.
