I also had the pleasure of taking a weaving class from Tammy Poff, Poff Studios to learn the Log Cabin pattern on the rigid heddle loom.  This pattern has a pickup stick element in between the log cabin which adds a degree of difficulty to the weaving.  Now to wait for the cold day in January to wear it, in Florida.

Traveling in April is supposed to be, well, springy like weather, right?  A late spring blizzard made me a day late to the North Central McGown Teachers Workshop in Dubuque Iowa!  We made snow angels one night after the second storm of the week!

 

I am making progress on a primitive rug from a class at the workshop.  Wide cut, primitive representation taught by Valerie Bergeman.  Excellent class.

March began with the Spring Fiber Fling in Wildwood Florida!  We had a full house of rug hookers, spinners, weavers, knitters, wool appliqués!  And more!   

The photos below are from the Florida Tropical Weavers Annual Conference in Lake Yale Florida March 15 - 18.  Sunrises over the lake were exceptionally beautiful each morning.  The Greenway Fiber Art Society exhibited many quality examples of fiber art, weaving, rug hooking, braiding, knitting, swedish weaving, wool appliqué.  I was honored to be chosen as a teacher during the conference.  My class was all about decorative stitches in rug hooking.  My vendor booth was packed with rug hooking and appliqué supplies.  My helper Mona added felting supplies, felted soaps, beaded jewelry, and wool appliqué kits.

We traveled to Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson TN for the March Madness Hooking Retreat organized by Lisanne Miller.  Two whole days this year to renew friendships and be reenergized!!  The park facilities are comfortable and convenient.

To Everyone who placed orders during the hurricane!  Thank you for your patience while we were cleaning up from Hurricane Irma!  We still have several trees to be removed (hoping tomorrow!!). We are extremely thankful that none hit the house.  The studio is reorganized, all neat and tidy for a few days anyway, 

I finished this stained glass design during the hurricane.  I used my trusty Beam N Read Light,  hang it  around your neck light when the power goes out and you can accomplish anything!  This pattern is sold by Honey Bee Hive Rug Hooking, designed by Jane Flynn.  I believe I will frame it.

 

Spinning when the power is out is easy!  At least during the daylight hours. At night I was able to use a power block and a LED light from the studio. This is Alpaca fiber and I am going to use it as is.  I kind of like the soft color.  I am always told MORE TWIST!  So I did, and added more twist when plying.  It was such a twisty chaotic mess and not photo worthy, not happy at all.  However, the magic happened in the soaking.  Now I am delighted with it.  The fluffy yarn is wonderfully balanced.  Can't wait to get it on the loom!
