RECENT POSTS FROM OTHER BLOGS

There were an amazing number of posts these past ten days that I really enjoyed.  Since I try very hard to use only one post per person, I worked very hard in some cases to choose which was my favorite of multiple posts.

If anyone wonders if I use any kind of ordering principle in the listing, the answer is basically no.  The posts pretty much appear in the order I have read them.  There are exceptions from time to time.

Hi Peg, I'm really tired this evening with my head buzzing from working too hard. I managed to finish winding the latest warp, too tired to think of getting it on the loom tonight, but head too busy to rest, so I put on the computer and think I'll have a look at what other weavers are up to.... and here I find you have organised a list! Than you! It's great, like flipping through a magazine. You introduce me to different people I don't otherwise have the time to get out and find :)

Thanks for the information on the other weaving blogs out there. I always find inspiration!

Peg in South Carolina said...

Dorothy and Alice, thank you. I'm very glad that you find these links useful.

I really enjoy the list you make of posts each week, and follow every one because I'm always learning something new, or just enjoying looking at someone's scrumptious project.

I've been very suprised and flattered to see two recent posts of mine in there - thankyou!
