The Weaver's Dance

On a loom that whispers, with shuttles that fly
And bobbins that chatter as the hours go by
I'll not lay in one thread of mere chance
As I work in the motion of the weaver's dance.

Happiness Is.....

Now, if you've been reading this blog, you know that I've been traveling and have done 2 shows back-to-back and a wonderful visit to Rosepath Weaving in Lindale as well.  What fun I've had.  Then, when I get home, the 'work' begins.... unloading the rig and taking contents of all those boxes apart to rearrange everything and packing it up for the next show!  Well,  okay, it's taken me awhile, but now I'm beginning to prepare my looms to, again, help me make fiber magic.

Now, except for the volume of yardage that I weave, we are all weavers together, right?  So, you know what happiness is......

Happiness is when you have tied your warp threads onto the front cloth beam, you've wound your bobbins within a thread of STUFFED, you have even woven in your HEADER, that moment comes when everything is right with your world... and you begin to this is happiness.  Weavers everywhere unite in one great big happy grin....I'm gonna go weave on Jimmy now...e'ya later!

I am sending out much of this happiness and Miles and Miles of Smiles,  Cat B.


  1. Hi, Felipa! Your comments didn't come through. Would you like to try again? Thanks for visiting! Cat B.

  2. Hi Cat! I'm trying-trying. Andrew was here today (Oh! Happy Father's Day Jim!) We worked on posting comments. Couldn't, so he checked that maybe our updates might have something to do with the problem. Soooo, I've already sent one for Margaret and can see that went. Sure hope that you received this one. I really really enjoy your web page...Good Job!

  3. Thanks for writing, Felipa! I'm glad you are able to make comments now and I'm so honored that you like the blog! The communication is fun since weaving is such a solitary activity! Thanks for following!

  4. I am a brand new weaver, who just discovered your blog and I love it!! I can totally relate to the feeling of having everything tied on and the header woven and being able to start the project at hand. I have only done this a total of four times, but am enjoying every part of the weaving process.

    I love your blog!!

    1. Thanks, Stitchin' Girl, I hope you will become a follower... I see you have started from the beginning. Boy, can I talk! Thanks for reading! Miles of Smiles, Cat B.
