If an eight-year-old can do it....


Niecelet reminded me of The Middle Moffatt's aptitude for basketball in Eleanor Estes' book, oh, way long ago. I hope she keeps up with it.

The PHC set! Neat. It looks like they have music stands in their front yard where other people have old cars.

Glad Mr. E seems to be on the mend.


You are a sly one to get the whole family involved in that fiber thing we love.


I KNEW it! It was only a matter of time! You're gonna be a weaver, you're gonna be a weaver.......heh, heh, heh! (I still haven't warped the floor loom we drove to Wis-flipping-consin for last summer, sigh.) I'll have to get you up to Vavstuga in Shelburne Falls one of these days!

Umm, he's right. That swift is gorgeous.

You can do a lot of things when you are eight and don't have a fear of failure.You just jump straight in and off you go.

Things we can learn from children - volume XX

(My floor loom is very like that one btw, small and not intimidating)


Love the swift!
If your niece becomes a weaver, it'll be even harder for you to resist, eh?


It sounds fun! I wish I could learn anything/something as quickly and easily as when I was 8.


boom, boom, boom "another one bites the dust"

The unintended fiber festival was full of surprise and delight. Serendipity at it's finest.


So serendipitous! Lol.


I was there Saturday and saw those swifts--very nice! It is very pleasant festival with a lot of great vendors and, surprisingly, many musicians. The Polish food was delicious, I hope you were able to sample it.

What a great outing! We are going to be in Michigan next week to visit family and need to plan an outing for a great-grandmother, 2 grandparents, two of our children and respective spouses, and 4 grandchildren, ages 6,5,3 & 3! I wonder if there are any great fiber fests handy?

Lovely swift, indeed.... and so lucky to have a husband who understands and appreciates the need for the right tools. Mine is happy to let me buy them, but cannot quite really see the need. (He's the same with jewelry.) But technology: if my computer dies, he orders me a new one before I have a chance to think about it. THAT he understands and appreciates!


The new swift is pretty. How do you like's its functionality?

Have fun with the warping!


What fun! You were in my former neck of the woods! I've never been to the Midwest fiber show, though - I moved out of the area (grew up in the 'burbs of Chicago) long before I learned to knit or spin.


Better you than me! I am staying strong in my resolve not to take up weaving. Strong!


I can SO see you weaving! Very technical and brain challenging. Yay for you!!


We may need to introduce the niecelets. Mine is also a weaver. As soon as the boxes are out of the studio, a loom might move in.
