Darn, Darn, Darn!!!

21 12 2007

You won’t believe it. I went to the Visual Art Center for our facult party last night. I just stepped in for 15 minutes because I was at dinner with my parents, and in town. In that little bit of time, my mom’s car was parked outside the center (remember that I am borrowing it because someone just caused an accident that involved both my girls and totalled my own car) and someone drove into my parked car! My Mom’s car! DARN!
Someone rescue me please! I’m sure I’m sinking!

On a more positive note, at least no one was hurt. This time of year, it’s usually our financial institution that has made a grievious error, or our appliances that have all had a melt-down, or something else major. So, I really can’t complain, can I?
My life is so rich and full and warm and loving. I am very richly blessed:0)

In the event I don’t check back in before Christmas, I hope yours if full of joy!

Beautiful handspun yarn and it’s fabric

12 12 2007




I just wanted to post pictures of the piece I’m weaving at Roseneath. The pattern yarn is a very cool handspun that I did sort of ‘on the fly’. I am using a Gems merino teal colored warp, and a navy blue corriedale hand-spun tabby weft. Hope you like it. I have also included a picture of the yarn before it is woven. What looks mustardy yellow is actually olive green. Cherri

pictures of a few of my handspun yarns

I am attaching pictures of some of my handspun yarns.
These are camel, alpaca, shetland, handpainted and black alpaca.
If you are not in the Richmond vicinity, but would like to study with me, I will be at Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA this summer.
My spinning class there will be from July 6-11. You can contact Touchstone here:

I would love to hear from you.

new pics/old and new work/play

Oh, I failed to mention that Alice Coppa came today to the Visual art center, and made one of these thrums scarves with me. She is an awesome knitter. You can visit her blog at:

Here are a few pics of some of my current work. I have pics of the scarf I made in the thrums party today. It has to do with dissolving interfacing, hmmm it worked quite well. Then there are some pics of some of my handspun that has been crocheted into squares. These are just samples of how various breeds of sheep, and weights of handspun look when crocheted. There is my latest felt rug. I like it. It’s more abstract than some, and more something than I usually am.
Uh, there is also a picture of a mohair boucle neck warmer that I hand-painted the yarn, and crocheted the item. It was too tickly (itchy) for me, so I knitted a liner for it out of some roving that I had hand-painted also. It is very ‘me’, as I like processes, and parts, sub-parts and sub-sub-parts to ‘stuff’. Hope you feel inspired by some of this. If not, I hope you are at least moved to make your own and come up with some really great stuff.
Take care.

Bethlehem walk

7 12 2007

I’m seeing a lot of hits on this site of folks looking for Bethlehem Walk in Goochland.
We have had to “pass” on putting it on this year, as we are building a permanent site for it along with our new church.
It will be back next year. Please check with Salem Baptist Church next year. In the interim, have a Joyous Christmas!
