Well, Hello!

So, it's only, forever!  So much has changed since my last blog post.  BUT I feel obligated to let you know where I've been so you might continue to read my sporadic updates that come in the future.

1. I had another baby.  Right, so that explains MOST of my absence from here.

2. We moved from the East Coast of Canada to the West Coast of Canada when baby was 3 months old.  So that explains the rest of where I've been.

I have been so busy settling, getting my eldest registered and then started in Kindergarten (how did that happen??) and learn our new home, that I have neither played with (or put together) my loom since we arrived.  Okay, I'll be frank, I left MY loom in New Brunswick when we moved thinking it was time to leave that piece of me behind as I didn't see a time when I'd be back to weaving.  Then after arriving in British Columbia, I was gifted a new to me loom with bench, warping mill, books, yarn, etc.  Right, the whole kit and kaboodle!  So, my new loom sits in the basement in pieces and my loom in NB sits in storage in my Dad's house until I'm back there one day to do something with it.

So that's what has been happening around here.  I made a whopping 3 owl ornaments this past Christmas and gifted all 3 of them away.

I have been asked to lead/coordinate a Weaving a Story workshop at my church for Lent.  We're going to do branch weaving and tell our life story through yarn.  I love it!  It takes me right back to the first weaving project I ever did in craft college.  So that's something to look forward to that is stringy.

I leave you with that.  And I promise to be back before another 18+ months...really!
