The Japanese have a legend that if one makes a thousand
origami cranes he or she will be granted their wish. So, Sassy
has embarked on making cranes. This crane is her first try. Hmm!
One would say it looks a little like a crow. But never you mind.
The crane delivers the wish that your Easter may be filled
with blessings.

A Tease

The weather has been teasing New Yorkers. Yesterday was
a lovely day for porch sitting. Today is dank and cold. One
would definitely say a  fire in the fire place kind of day.

So, Sassy is working on a dish towel warp with all the lemon,
lime, and blue enchantment of a summer day.

Warmer days are coming.

Cloudy Day in Kingston Town

Watching the birds... longing for spring... wishing the snow away.
The sun will shine tomorrow.

Happy Spring

Sassy bought the little plant for a touch of spring today.
And a ball of yarn to knit tennis socks. It has been years
since Sassy and the husband have played tennis. But the
socks are darling and will hopefully please the grand girls.

Weaving the Green

Weaving the green is my best effort to create a St. Patrick's
day post with a photo of Ms. Jennifer's latest project.

The lovely fabric is woven on a Saori pre-wound warp using
lengths of Sari silk for weft. Truly it is Irish green but the sun
light on the loom has shaded the color into the blue range.

May you always have:
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire

March is Purple

The other night Sassy watched the sky as darkness
descended.The clouds were highlighted with a
of purple. Sadly the camera recorded the streak
as blue.

Then today Sassy wove a variegated Tencel warp
and knew instinctively that purple was to be the
color of March.
