What's new-it's been a long time-my fault-I bought a saori loom and have spent a looooong time learning how to set it up -how to warp the loom and how to weave-I looove it -spend hours I should be sleeping--weaving-I have made about 10 pieces of cloth and now I will start to cut them apart(oh no!)and make some awesome garments. As soon as I get them finished I will photograph them and show you-I am making mostly jacket and scarves. Maybe next year when I have enough stock I will jury in to some craft shows and sell them-Yes SELL THEM-then I can buy more yarn and weave more cloth-it's a vicious addictive circle-I imagine there is an AA group for our addiction-I guess it could be worse-I love the feel of wool-the smell of wool and well just wool.I often thought I would like to be a shepardess and have my own flock-but then I read about all the things you have to do with and for sheep and well I decided to buy my wool a the sheep and wool show-by the way I am going to the New York Sheep and Wool show in October-I can't wait-I know I will be spending a LOT of money but well I can't take it with me so why not-Sometimes I wish I had found myself a long time ago when I was young-but then I would't have had the money and the kids were there so I guess it all worked out for the best. Look at Grand Ma Mosses-she didn't paint until she was ancient-I guess I'm almost there-when I am in my studio weaving I have three helpers-Kat, Tabby and Housini are lying on the floor all around me-they are my babies now since my children are all grown and don't need me anymore-but they need me-and it just feels right-it's peaceful and quiet only sound is the clank of the heddles as they go up and down and of course the purr of my cats-I like the peace and quiet-when the wind blow I can hear the music of my wind chimes and that also is relaxing-meditative if you will-well I guess I will go home-I'm at work now and it's almost time to quit. I will try and write soon(It won't be a year)

A Prayer

Here I am again-It's Midnight and I just got home-the restaurant wasn't very busy today-It has been a bad year for restaurants-every one is down in the numbers-big chain restaurants are closing sites, retail is very iffy to say the least but at least we have a business, a place to live and our lives-the people in the south who have just gone through the worst times of their lives-well what can words do now-how can we pick them up and restore their belief in their world-about the only thing(and the most important one)


  1. is Prayer-prayers to the lord to help them carry this burden and some how come out of it and be stronger-I will pray the Lord will give them strength and that through the many donations from good and caring people will bring them home safely. Ok enough of this sadness-It has turned hot and humid-I guess that comes from the hurricane but I also heard on the telli that their is snow in the north west-what extreme ends of the scale-I finished working on my website-I added a new page-Hats For Cats by Isadora-I put a radio button on the page and with a click of your finger on the mouse and you will be transported to the Etsy store to see what is new and now for sale-that's right-you can buy one of the most beautiful hats for your(or a friends)precious baby Kitty-Let me know what you think about the new line-and come and visit me at the Morristown Armory on October 20-22-I don't have my booth number as of yet but as soon as I do I will put it on my show page-I'm doing a couple of show in New England and will post the information as soon as I have it. I'll say GoodNight for now.

I was recently looking at a bag of holiday candy-you know the kind that are all shiny like glass but are filled with chocolate-anyway the colors were so great that I decided to see if some of the beads I had would be a match-and YES they were-so I created these--have a look-the red one makes me think of red hots and the cinnamon and cherry flavor-the blue one reminds me of mint and it is such a cool color while the pink one-well that one is just so pretty-it reminds me of the strength of women even when faced with a devastating medical event or anything for that matter-I truly love the way the colors play off each other-When I made these I used a magnetic clasp which makes it very easy to put on and take off- take a look and let me know what you think-do you like the color combinations-what is your favorite color and why-I love to listen to the comments and get a feel of just what my fans like-thanks for looking and if you get a chance please like my face book  page www.facebook.com/Cynthiaandcolimited/        --thank you!
