Family


This past week, my cousins Annette and Cheryl came to spirit my mother away to Atlanta to see her sister.  It was the first time I'd seen Annette and Cheryl in 18 years.  We went to Litton's in Fountain City, one of my favorite places in Knoxville.  Mom is still in Atlanta, with no concrete plans yet of coming back.  Good thing I have Miss Etta with me!  We cousins didn't get to spend much time together, but I hope we will in the future, now that they have moved from the northeast coast to Atlanta.
  My sister-in-law, Jeanne is pictured below, weaving in my studio this past February.  She went home to Tempe and took a weaving class.  She  sent me photos of her twill samplers from her class and said I could share them with you.
Very nice for a first effort, isn't it?  She's already a fiber artist, a knitter of amazingly beautiful Fair Isle sweaters, and I know she's going to be very creative with weaving, as well.


A few days after Jeanne sent these photos, my brother sent me a video of Jeanne threading her new 8 shaft Baby Wolf, but the quality of the video is a little hard to see.  I'm hoping for more photos to share with you of the new weaver in our family soon.  Until then, happy weaving, and don't forget to pass it on!

Jeanne has the fever.........I think she will really enjoy her Baby Wolf. That was a good choice. And, I'm glad your Mom is getting some sister time...it's so important.

Sounds like bunch of wonderful visits! Lovely work too for a new weaver. As LA said, the fever has hit!

Jeanne already does beautiful work! Good job Maggie, one more knitter who can weave. The world is a better place.

I hope you do get to spend more time with the cousins. Hope that your mom enjoys time with her sister. Your sister in law has the fever. She is doing great.
