I've been doing a little weaving. I even built myself a new loom. I'm doing warp face weaving in the traditional backstrap fashion, except for the fact that I have lashed it to a frame that I built myself. It helps me with my tension and keeps me from having a backache.
As it turns out I don't like being physically strapped into the loom. I guess I have to get up and down too often.
Here are some photos for you to check out…
Most of my yarns are in a truck packed away in a storage unit, I didn't really have room for them in the RV if I wasn't using them.
So this happens to be the yard that I just happen to have on hand. I also wanted to give a try at some weaving that wasn't as bright and colorful as some of the traditional backstrap weavings. I wanted to do almost like a brocade where it's just like green on green or silver on silver the way this piece is, I kind a like the effect and I'm going to do more of this.
Hear you say that I have folded it into one of the little pouches I like to make.
And in this one I thought you might just want to get a better look…
And then I switched over to bright bright bright colors.
The color is called fiesta it's a very very orangey red. It really pops against the white I have plenty of it to I intend to do something else with it later.
I won't be at the farmers market tomorrow,I'm babysitting for a friend of mine in Jacksonville. But you keep your eyes peeled I fully intend to continue trying to figure out things to add to my stall aside from just the Pineneedle baskets. Wish me luck and keep your eyes peeled I'll be back...
Hi there! My name is Marsha Knox and I own Pandula Arts Creations.
Usually after I tell people my shops name, their first question is what does Pandula mean? Well, being heavily involved in the fiber arts, I once read in a rug hooking magazine, that a “Pandula is a flower which lives only in ones imagination”! Since I rarely if ever use a pattern in my art my designs they are usually “Pandula’s”.
I am a self taught artist who dabbles in graphite pencil drawing, weaving, sock knitting, bead work, crochet, spinning yarn, pine needle basket weaving and whatever else suits my fancy. I even built my own loom and made my own double pointed knitting needles for sock knitting. I think I am living in the wrong era; I would have loved being a pioneer woman.
That’s a little about me, I would love to get to know some of you. Please come by and visit some time.
Finally a piece I can wear! Made in a wonderful collaboration between me and Dana! Alot of sentiment here! I carry it with me everwhere!

Prism of Hope
Pandula Original Graphite Art Drawing. This one was done while I was in the middle of making some big life changes. Seems to glow with "Hope". I find that my mood often comes through in my artistic endeavors. I hope you like it as much as I do.
My Pride and Joy
I wanted to learn to do Portraiture. Very hard! So once I got my daughter's face to the point where my co workers knew who it was I never had the desire to do another.
I was working on this for my mother when I actually got the call that she had passed on.
