update ... and a rant
Apologies for the crappy blog post title ... I'm not particularly inspired to blog at the moment! No, nothing bad happening - quite the opposite! I love my new job, and have been weaving like a maniac - I haven't been on the computer as much as I usually am.
Before I start ranting - here's a cute picture of Frankie:
I have just UNfollowed a whole pile of blogs, mainly because I was getting bored of the same old stuff being posted - the blogiverse is pretty cliquey ... I notice the more outspoken I am, the less people comment here, confirming my opinion that a lot of people suck up to some bloggers in order to attract more followers. That sort of popularity contest has never interested me before, and certainly doesn't now. In fact, many blogs with lots of followers are the ones that are very 'safe', not saying much at all ...
OK, rant over - I promise!
I have been weaving ... to the point that my tapestry homework is falling by the wayside. I only have 3 subjects this year, and only one of them is actual tapestry weaving. The other 2 are theoretical - a sustainability topic (now completed, albeit rushed), and a Business subject. I *love* tapestry weaving, but am champing at the bit to do my own Goth Deathrock Art Project work rather than boring samplers ... I know I have so much more to learn, but what I really need is practice, practice and more practice.
So this is what I've been weaving - just finished these two, already sold:

And just off the loom:
This afternoon I'll be warping up again - making a geometric-style scarf for Anita's dad ;)
Thanks to my new job, I get to weave for about 1/2 hour before work, and at least 1 hour after work - it's so great working closer to home - I can't believe how much time I used to waste travelling!
Oh, and I almost forgot, got my hair done yesterday ... this is me being an anti-fashion blog, LOL!
