"An attitude of gratitude brings opportunities"
Sometimes the quotes dangling from tea bags are so right!
In the studio Terri and I were weaving in the morning. Here's Terri's favorite part…
Today's quote of the day, "Creation is mental/spiritual pleasure. Acknowledge the difference between copying and learning. Lynn came to visit today. She brought some of her jackets to share with me. I am looking forward to making my fabric into some kind of jacket, vest, squid, tunic…we shall see… It will be good for me to learn some of this while I am here. Thanks for the inspiration Lynn!
Once my fabric was complete, I had to wash it first before sewing it into anything…
We had a relaxing lunch break. Once we were done eating, I had fed the birds. They eat right from your hands!
Back in the studio, I began to plan the warp for "little Terri". I am going to weave Terri's piece on the small piccolo loom.
Terri's husband Alan is a photographer and I got to see this team in action today. Terri brought her weaving to the beach and Alan photographed it in various spots. I snuck in, got my shadow in the light (sorry Alan!) and took a few shots too. The rocks there were worn away with fantastic patterns left in them. They looked like lace.

I look forward to working more on "little Terri" tomorrow as well as sewing my fabric into some kind of clothing…possible my west coast dream coat or a version of it...
