Jennifer modeling fall 2012 to-be-named Pirtti scarf
Through Ursula of Modaspia I found Elizabeth of Primoeza. Through Elizabeth I found Jennifer of Ermie. By chance of moving to California and having the opportunity to visit L.A. regularly, I have met with Jennifer in person. I just love how that all comes together!
This past weekend I was in L.A for a quick trip and had the chance to meet up with Jennifer for coffee. (Though in reality it was much too hot for coffee!) I’ve been a fan of her bold and colorful work for quite a while. Having my head in the sand so to speak, weaving away by myself, I wanted to show her what I’m working on and talk through some ideas. It occurred to me that Jennifer has never actually seen my work in person and it tickled me pink that she was ready to buy a scarf on the spot on a hot day. It was great to show her the stuff in person, get some feedback, see what aspects of the work she was drawn to. I’m ready to get cracking on the next few warps and of course have ideas for many more. I only wish there were more hours in the day, or that I required less sleep.
All the ladies I mentioned above inspire me and were the first ones I followed when I decided to pursue this new venture. They all have blogs, and in the spirit of “follow friday“, I highly recommend you check them out.
Instagram is quite fun and I find myself addicted. (@pirttihandwoven if you’re interested.) Speaking of following people, I have a funny story about that, but I’ll save that for another day…
