The old year ended well, with a total for the year of 123 yards woven, a new record for me. That’s despite two months early in the year when I had no output due to the Consolidation Project of combining studio and home after massive divestment of STUFF. (There’s still a lot; more on that at another time.) A friend of mine called 2014 The Revolutionary Year, a descriptive phrase that’s not far off the mark.
2015, on the other hand, I’m calling The Consolidation Year, during which my plan (duly written down as always and reviewed with Anne Belov as always) calls for continued production of new weaving at an average rate of ten yards per month. (Lots of other things in the plan as well, on which more some other time.)
