There is no doubt in my mind that weaving is a *skill that can take
a lifetime to learn.

Volunteering to weave for a demonstration is a good way to make 
an *effort in learning.

All I can say is .. good thing I started the sample early!

This hand dyed warp:
Shrunk, plumped, was mis-measured,
beamed twice, and turned into Gumby stretchy on the loom.

While the yarn is soft, it has made me
.. "GRITTY"..

I just started reading a book called:

'Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance'
by Angela Duckworth

She defines 'grit' as the combination of perseverance and passion.

For now I'll just keep on weaving.

With all the extra yardage from a measuring error, I'm going 
to be here for a while...but I won't be gritting my teeth..

*skill x *effort = achievement

: )



  1. The combination of stripes in the warp and the threading make interesting blocks. Don't give up.


  2. just keep weaving, just keep weaving (said in Dori's voice, of course)
    xoxo, it's beautiful

  3. Lovely work Leigh, you are so fiber multi talented.
    I just saw a TED talk with Angela and now I am ordering her book- thanks for the tip, she's terrific.
