Studio C


A brief look inside M's Studio C and my sublet corner of the crafting universe where my loom etc. reside. We shall draw a veil over our attempts at cooperatives for the moment.

My loom, dormant for many years, now has this pink warp:


And pink-ish weft. M and I are going to do some dyeing experiments on it, when it's done. I hadn't woven in so long, that I failed to remember to mark where to end one "shawl" and begin the next, so this is just one long continuous thing. What? A finished object soon . . .


M's work table in the other room, plus the beverage center. The microwave is strictly for non-food-related projects. But my electric kettle fits in well, no?


M's sewing central; lots of great stuff coming off this. I'll put up some pix of her quilted bags and her dolls. Very inspiring.


Media center; we get 3 channels, so we can watch Martha, some soap operas, and, if we stay late enough, the mighty O herself . . . Should we have the TV on to interrupt our connection to the muse??

Looks highly productive to me. I have one pair of unfinished socks, one unfinished sweater, one unfinished scarf, one newly started scarf and two skeins to roll into balls......I'm very, very slowwww
Cheers

My mother was a spinner and a weaver. And I'm not describing how she drives.

Thanks for showing us around! That loom looks very complicated - does it take a long time to learn how to use it properly?

It looks marvellous. I have always wanted to learn to weave on a loom, but I have always wanted to learn all sorts of creative things... right now I am looking for someone to teach me to crochet... just simple stuff.

Gorgeous pics, tut-tut. What a series of creative spaces.

I did a tiny bit of weaving once - ties and a piece that became a cushion. Very satisfying.

I hope you and yours had a nice weekend. :))

A loom! I cannot wait to see the pink fabric. Is it hard to do? I have always wanted to learn.
