Pottery Studio.

Cleaned and organized.  I've even cleaned more and organized more.  Look at the new ceiling!  I didn't take any before pictures because it was just to gross.  Squirrels can be nasty dirty creatures..enuf said?

More weaving

Bought this loom from a friend for really cheap... And it was already warped so I'm playing with it and learning how to read the pattern charts in books.  Which was totally Greek to first.  I'm beginning to understand them a little more each time I go threw the books.
 Mine isn't quite as clean as this one but it will be once I clear it.  Bill and I have plans to lightly sand and oil it.  I have plans to do some Rose painting on the side bars.  And, it screamed its name at me when I first brought it home.  Abigail.. She's a pretty thing

More kids

Remember the coat I remade for my youngest son?  Here it is in action! Pictures taken a Gear Con in Portland Oregon.  Marshall and Liz

Marshall and Liz at Sakura con

She's dressed like a Kitsune..a Japanese Were fox..kinda.  She made both their outfits.  Mostly by hand. Including the Tail and ears. Her hair is the most amazing shade of RED!  Matches her tail and ears.

More Weaving

Top one I finished Wednesday.  The one on the loom I started Thursday night with yarn that I bought from a knitting friend.  Hand dyed.  The central pink is my homespun.  You can see in the lower pic that I'm playing with textures.  Waiting on a book but this much I figured out by making on purpose :)

6 months in review

The next few pages are an attempt to update everyone.  I know some people only have this blog to know whats going on in my life (Sascha) and the lives of my kidlings.

The next few pics are of my eldest son and his sweet lovely Girlfriend Katie.  And, one of the ships he has worked on recently.   He's, as of this writing, being reassigned and we don't know where to yet.  Gotta love big companies..right.

Katie also works as a cook on another ship (not Jerico's)  She knits and crochets and has joined my knit group where she is constantly amazing me on how she just jumps in and learns things.

More happenings from late 2013

So, last summer at June Faire,  I introduced Marshall to a local gamer friend of mine.  Liz and I hadn't met up to this point but you can see she had an impact.
Marshall house on Thanksgiving

                                               with  Liz!  Was Awesome

                            All of Wyatt's kids had fun playing games on Marshall's BIG flat screen tv.
                                     Sorry no pic's of Wyatt.  He was taking the pictures.
                      Liz draws..alot.  She designed this dragon and I beaded it into a bag.
