Feverishly Weaving





My weaving class is nearing the end with our final critique scheduled for next Monday. This warp faced weaving is as thick as a carpet and took lots of finishing to make it art-worthy. Luckily I had lots of extra weaving to play with and a little help from my sweet elf Maia, who for the first time took up a tapestry needle and did a little sewing with me; a happy moment indeed.

I still have one more weaving to beat out before Monday and it looks like I won't be going to class today since Maia came down with a stomach bug. Puke and laundry, ad nauseum, and I haven't really left her side since yesterday at 6 am. Now she is sleeping after retching up her small breakfast. Poor thing. These are the days that make studio classes difficult, doing anything at all, in fact, is difficult. The unpredictability of parenthood, the chaos, the messes, the endless laundry and cleaning, when all I really want to do is get cracking on the 20 plus hours I have left in my last project. Oh well, that's what the open studio hours are for this weekend and then it is Daddy's turn to clean up the puke!
