New Beginnings & Dreams

Last weekend I had a chance to drive up north to visit with our daughter's family and meet our newest Grandson.  Our daughter Amy is holding her new baby, David while big sister Kaya is looking on.  What a lovely group don't you think?

Here is a better shot of our new baby, he is a real squiggle-butt - he loves to stretch and wriggle around whenever he is awake.  What joy this little one brings to our family.

Sitting across the table from his Mother and new baby brother is our wonderful Grandson, Christian.  My husband and I are just thrilled to have three Grandchildren, we view it as one more little one to spoil!

My other big news is----

I have entered the Martha Stewart American Made 2013 Contest and hope to be recognized as a maker who is helping to revive lost art forms and a person who is helping to push the American made movement forward.  I am in the running to win $10,000 which I plan to use to upgrade my looms and open a working studio where I can demonstrate and teach weaving.

Voting begins August 26th.

I know this is a long shot, but I hope it is the first step to making my dreams come true.
Please vote August 26th.

Happy Weaving!
