Portland Pre Fall


It's starting to feel a little like fall is upon us in Portland, last week was still pretty warm though. I took an awesome lunch break walk for coffee at the Albina Press off of N Mississippi, they make a killer americano, and I've been working on my lap loom at home. Lets get ready for fall!

Alpaca Farm

While we were on our mini honeymoon in Hood River, we went out to an Alpaca farm deep out past the orchards. Their shop is called foothills yarn, I got 2 skeins of alpaca in fall colors to use in some upcoming weavings either on my lap loom or maybe in some rugs on the floor room. The woman who worked there said they have 52 alpaca! Great adventure

Making a Bouquet

I made my own bouquet for the big day with a mix of grocery store flowers and the help of this tutorial. It was pretty simple and fun to make and I love that I got to pick each individual flower. I'd  highly recommend going this route for anyone who's in the market for one.

Wool for Rugs

About a month ago I put in a huge order for wool yarn from a Navajo shop. I'm going to be making rugs this fall! These are the sketches that I'm going to try and work from.
It took forever to wind all the skeins into balls, but they're finally done and ready to go. I rent a loom at a studio here, since Cameron and I live in a small 1 bedroom apt. I took the summer off since we were so busy with plans, and I am anxious to return to the studio and start on these.
