Anyway I would like to thank all the wonderful and lovely people who have dropped by the Attic to say hi, share cookies, take pictures, chat for a while or just to say hi! To ALL, thanks on behalf of what people are calling us now:
Ladies of the Attic! isn't it fantastic? Ladies of the Attic! It sounds like the princess of the Tower...jiji
Sybil came, together with her Art Connections Group. Read below and you will definitely understand why weaving in an attic where just amazing and creative people surround you, cant be but just as magnificent as it is! I really thank Sybil the opportunity to do this project here.

Yamile and Delta my cousin who recently moved to oakville, Jenny, one of the members of my Studio who paints lovely (visit http://oakvillepaintingstudio.blogspot.com) and you can also see the work of her lovely daughter, Vicky who paints and weaves!
One of the artists brought an interesting article from the National Post from Wednesday October 20, 2010 about Rogue Weave....We commented about it and the thin line of art and craft!
It has been such nice sunny days.
Day 13, which is already today Wednesday Nov. 3rd.
Cold Cold morning. Everything was frozen and yet the sun blessed the day. The frozen pond and dead flowers create a lovely scenery of sparkling lights!
and artist from Toronto commented:" You've brought the outside colours in! it is a magnificent day today and you are locking that into your threads...Glorious Tapestry!
Today only Stella and I where the only weavers. I had to leave early, so did she. Minutes passed by and we hardly spoke or took breath!
We where just soooo immersed into our weaving..plus the renaissance music that it completed our inner silence!
details of the weaving so far:
Until next time.
