as if i need another hobby

It's still just a beginning….but I think I'm hooked. The process. The materials.

Not to mention the wine, and the good music in the background, and the time with two people I love to be with.

  1. I used to weave before I had children, and I loved every minute of it. I’m about to take a refresher willow weaving class and I can’t wait. I’m glad you’re enjoying it too. Such a hugely satisfying pastime.

  2. I would love to learn to weave. Of course, I would also like to learn to spin and a whole host of other things. I am not sure I have time for any more hobbies either. I am glad though that you took the time to pursue it. Your project looks great.

  3. learning to weave is on my list, too! I even have a spinning wheel that was handed down to me from my grandmother. now i just need to find someone patient enough to teach me. 🙂

  4. I’ve been wanting to weave baskets since we took a family trip to the YMCA of the Rockies and I walked through the arts and crafts center– it was basket weaving heaven. I have plans for a mama only getaway this spring or summer to sit in that place, look out the gigantic windows at the pristine mountains, and weave myself a basket or two.

  5. My mom and I took a class in this when I was about 10. What good memories. I have not done in so long, but I know my girls will love it when they are bigger!

  6. that looks really fun (something my 2 girls might like to try) Are you taking the class at a shop? I’m no expert in spinning, but I could get you started. Let me know, and let me know about that basket weaving if it’s at a shop – you can email me at maryehub@aol.com

  7. It looks like a lot of fun. Maybe someday, when I finish all my other craft supplies up (as in – maybe in 50 years!) I could try my hand at it. 🙂

  8. baskets!! don’t feel bad–it’s so useful; think of all the new storage you will have for all your other hobbies 🙂 I took a basketweaving camp class one summer in middle school. my friends and I were old enough to feel ironic about it and did it as a joke (aren’t all middle schoolers ironic?), but I still have and use several of my creations.

  9. Oh basketry! I loved it when I did some in highschool and junior high with my 4-H club. Miss it. Wonderful warm weather, on the lawn with friends activity. I think I need basket-weaving friends too. Will have to get on that.

  10. basket-making! oh, that would go a long ways toward sating my endless basket appetite. (or maybe it would simply fill up another cupboard with supplies? oh, but still…)
