I have been staying in quite a bit the past two weeks. Even in the early morning my studio is just unbearably hot. Sorry, but I don't love clay that much! I have so much nervous energy and my hands always want to be busy making something, so I have found my thoughts wandering to fiber.
Friday I went to Siler City and bought some angora wool and signed up for a weaving class that will start the first of September. I have this nagging interest in weaving lately and I might as well try it out and see if it is something I will stick with. The investment is minimal. $80 for the class and the loom was $3 at the thrift store. I also found these really cool spools that I want to do something with. I love the colors of them. The angora is amazing, so soft and beautiful.
I would to figure out some way to incorporate clay and fiber. I have always loved textiles and it's nice to have something to work on inside when the days are so hot or so cold that my studio isn't fun to be in. There is also a local class that I am interested in for spinning your own yarn. Wish I could just raise the alpaca, make my wool and weave away my days. Nice dream...... Happy Sunday. We are staying cool and watching the Tour de France, drinking our healthy juice and having a lazy day xo
