A new website in the new year

So far this has been a difficult year.  Every day comes and new challenges arise.  One step at a time.  This too shall pass.  All those platitudes to make oneself feel better.

On a positive note, I've been spending time with long phone conversations with Bhakti Ziek, who is my co-conspirator teacher for our upcoming Spring Concentration at Penland School of Crafts.  We have a nearly full class, as there may be only one spot remaining.  We are both looking forward to a challenging and rewarding eight weeks of intense involvement with all things woven.

My tapestry diary for 2017 is underway and I need to be at the studio working on my month's image of camellia blossom right now instead of doing this post.

And my latest large tapestry is drawing close to the end.  I'm hoping to get it off the loom within a couple of weeks.

But I started writing this post to mention my new website.  It's definitely a work in progress, just like my blog and my life, I guess.  I'm doing it through Squarespace--after all the ads I hear for Squarespace on the podcasts I listen to, I thought I'd give it a try.

If you want to take a look at how it stands now, here's the link.  I'll probably be changing it along the way but this is as good as it gets right at this point.

And here's the finished and framed 2016 tapestry diary being photographed by the amazing Tim Barnwell:



  1. So ... will it be camellias all year like it was black walnuts for 2016?

  2. The website looks great! It is wonderful to have a gallery of your works available for viewing online.

  3. Yay!!! I'm so excited you have a website. I use Squarespace and love it.
