Excellent quote, Peg, and that is exactly what is causing me to change the direction of my weaving.
Instead of thinking product first, I want to focus on process for awhile.

Janice, I hope you enjoy this approach. Thanks for sharing.
Bonnie, yes, you are very process oriented--and you create beautiful art.
