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.

International Quilt Festival In Houston, Texas ~Booth # 1536 !

Popular Desert Night fabric from my loom named Jimmy!
Everyone should have a project that makes them giggle, and my little Raggy Cat Pin Cushions do that for me! At $14, this makes a great gift for someone who sews or a 'cat purrrrrrson'! There's a link if you can't wait until Houston!

I am busy weaving This-N-Thats, like in the photo above, for the International Quilt Festival in Houston taking place November 1-4 with a preview night on October 31!

This will be a first time event for me, though I have been told for YEARS that I should go there and be a vendor.

If you haven't been exploring my blog, one might not know what a This-N-That's handwoven yardage that's less than a yard.

This-N-That from my loom named Stanley!

I am weaving literally 100 new ones, to bring along and will have some new garments, too, made out of my handwoven fabrics. While in Texas, we will be visiting my dearest friend, Rachel and boy do I need a Rachel-FIX! And hug, too...on both sides!

There seems to be no end to the number of This-N-Thats that I can create. I have produced some from 6 of my 9 floor looms, no 2 alike, each unique and ready to make into something WONDERFUL!

A This-N-That full of color...what would YOU make?
All the photos here are This-N-Thats, machine washed and dried and ready to make into something unique!

I've got yardage, too, from my many looms and there's such variety....all are easy care, ready to sew.

Thanks for looking....I'll be in Booth #1536.....come visit if you can make it to the International Quilt Show 2012 and see these fabrics for REAL!

Miles and Miles of Smiles,
