In Devotione Pulchritudo Vivat

My friend Audrye is an apprentice and a protege.  Her laurel told her that she would be taking a student for herself, so she needed a belt.  That’s where I came in.  She needed a blue belt with an ermine on each end.  I’ve never played with brocade, but I had been playing with single-color […]

Projects In Progress January 2020

To hold myself accountable I’m going to try to post a monthly list of what I’m working on.  This is as much for myself as to keep my lovely laurel Mickel, my households Knotty Snake and the yet unnamed fibers household I’m building, and those who are so kindly helping me as I learn and […]

My Tablet Weaving Books

I came across a fairly comprehensive list of tablet weaving books that had been posted online in 2006, I am working my way through that list, checking on what I have, and what really is pertinent to my collection. I know I have a number of books that have been released since 2006 and will […]
