So, although it was a small and perhaps foolhardy group to brave the icy road conditions, we sure had a good time at our December weavers gathering. Bonnie's home was so warm and inviting, it was a pleasure to sit by the fire on such a dreary day.
We met a new weaver; Barb who drove all the way from Wauzeka. She pulled one beautiful weaving project after another out of her felted bag, ala Hermoine. The one that really took my breath away was a bamboo/tencel overshot table runner in warm fall colors. I don't know why I think that I don't like overshot. Guess I have always had it in my head that it is too "old lady"; disregarding the fact that I fit squarely in the old lady category. Now I am excited to give it a try. The same for crackle weave after seeing how beautiful Judith's sampler yardage turned out. So, bravo ladies for turning what could have been a gloomy day at home, into a day of fiber inspiration and extremely well fed tummies.
