Not so easy anymore to get things done around here...Even though this puppy sleeps some during the day and spends time in her kennel as well, I am doing training, walking, socializing, puppy play dates (which aren't going so well), feeding, getting up early (which I hate am getting used to) putting weaving stuff up on higher shelves...well, you get the picture.
But I have managed to get 17 towels off one of my looms (12 were ordered by Annie, one of my returning customers) and 4 might be sold already to another returning customer and one I am keeping. Now comes the tedious part, cutting them apart, pressing the hem, pinning and sewing both ends. Next, washing, drying, ironing, tagging, photographing and mailing.
I have been weaving for 24 years and selling for almost as long! I have slowed down my weaving since my cancer diagnosis and subsequent Whipple surgery but still weave on and off during the day when I have the energy! I currently sell my work on www.barefootweaver.etsy.com.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December, 2009. Had Whipple surgery in January 2010 and have had clear CT scans since! We are hopeful for a long and happy life!
As an update...I had a valve replacement in May 2016 and apologize for not answering comments or blogging! I am off to NYC February 15, 2017 for surgery on the 16th to remove a little spot of lung cancer. Hopefully recovery will be uneventful and I will be back at weaving soon!
