It's been a while since my last post. 

I got a real job.

I am working for a non-profit political organization, working on their communications. New website, print newsletter, e-newsletter, e-marketing, graphics, the whole shebang. A lot of the old synapses are starting to fire again and I am enjoying the gig more than I imagined I would. 

But, the job has cut deeply into my writing and art-making time, which is a drag, but I think it's worth it.

The coolest part is the job fits all my requirements, and I didn't even have to look for it. I wanted a part-time communications job not far from where I live. This job fits. Plus, I hadn't even been looking, and a recruiter contacted me out of the blue and set everything up. Pretty cool.

So, I have been working for a month or so, and, while this a fairly unconventional workplace, I like my colleagues and I like the work. So it's all good.

In other news, I have been enjoying visitors lately. My good friend, Debbie, came for a long weekend over the 4th of July holiday. We toured touristy places and walked on the beach and ate lots of good food. It was a great weekend!
Nell and Haley from the ATL are heading up this way soon and we are planning a raucous good time. They will be here when my husband's friends Trevor and Chris are coming up to go see Bob Dylan in Chicago. A full, fun house!

My mom is heading up sometime soon as well. She hasn't been feeling well lately, and it looked like I'd be visiting her this summer. But, she's known for changing her mind about things and has decided she wants to visit me! Hurray!

If you are wondering about the crazy picture of toilet paper rolls, that was taken in the bathroom at Bat17 in Evanston. I'm guessing they buy their bathroom products at Costco.

Good to speak with u the other day and great to see your back to writing here on your blog. I thought of a thingy you could start making in addition to your Christmas Tree throws. It would be a similar item but used for those outdoor patio tables that have an umbrella in the center. I go thru all the trouble placing condiments and food on the 60+ inch round patio table with umbrella opened and it just does not look right. I looked today at Kohls and Target and could not find anything.

On a separate note, I too am giving time to a local political cause. I'll call and we can compare notes. BTW - RU using Wordpress for this blog?

    My name is Megan McCann. I started Tweedle Fiber Studio several years ago to give myself an outlet for all my fiber arts work. 
    Whatever I think I can do with a paint brush and canvas, I find I can also do with fabric or yarn or bits of wool. And I love the finished work more, because it is touchable and usable and has texture.
    My style is goofy, it always has been. I love geometric shapes, but always with a twist. I love to combine sharp lines with whimsy, boxy shapes with free-form ideas.


    I do volunteer work for a wonderful organization here in Lake County, Illinois, called LakeCountyCares. We connect volunteers with opportunities that fit their needs, skills and interests, as well as run several outreach programs such as food and toiletries drives, work in underserved schools, among others. LCC is a small group doing so much good on a shoestring. If you would like to learn more, or donate, please go to
