Cape Cod Loom Girl is branching out...
While I love weaving and spinning, let's face it I just can't sit still. I'm happiest when I'm learning new things and adding new skills. So I've added on to my skill set in the past few years that this blog has sat dormant. I've also added to my toys. I've started machine embroidering and applique. I've also branched into quilting. So that means I've replaced my antiquated sewing machine with a new Singer 9960 for quilt piecing. I liked that Singer machine so much, I bought a Singer Futura Embroidery machine to the collection. But lately I've been having the most fun with this year's Christmas present - a Silhouette Cameo - personal die cutting machine. Stay tuned for more info on my new toys.
New Name, New Emphasis
Because I have so many varied crafting interests, I've decided to rename my blog to reflect better on my biggest loves; designing, learning and teaching. So I'm naming this blog after my biggest inspirations, cheerleaders, and the real brains behind this operation, Emma & Lucy Spaniels. Emma & Lucy, better known as EmmaLucy because that's how I call them, are four year old Springer Spaniel sisters who keep me company while I work. Without them I'd be the crazy lady who talks to herself. With them, I'm the crazy lady who talks to her dogs. I'm sure you can understand how their existence vastly improves how the world perceives me. But I digress. With the resurrection and re-dedication of this blog, I plan on focusing on my design process as well as tutorials on my latest endeavors.
How do you celebrate when two geeks decide to tie the knot? With a cosplay wedding of course! I am proud to announce that my oldest daughter, Princess Alyce of Alderaan will be marrying Master Chief of Halo fame (aka Dave) under the Stargate in May. To really make matters complicated ( and fry the brain cells of geeks everywhere) the wedding will be officiated by Commander William Riker of the Starship Enterprise. (aka Uncle Bob) This affair is one for the record books. We have great plans for this cosplay extravaganza. My sewing machines, spinning wheels, scroll saw, and Silhouette have been humming along making projects for this wedding, so please stay tuned for pictures , tutorials and updates as we prepare for the wedding.
