Or thinking about weaving. Some time at home has let me do some loom work. I finished a pair of cotton chenille bath sheets that seemed to take forever. I had to order more yarn for the warp so it languished on the loom. But it was well worth the wait. They’re soft, absorbant and huge. I think I’ll need more.
Now I’ve got placemats in process. I’ve made several sets for friends. I noticed that I always admire them when I see them again, so now it’s time for my own set.
They are warped back to front and I made this nifty raddle and set it up in an ingenious way I learned at Red Stone Glen.
Our outdoor shower mat became loose so I wove the boards together in a plain weave.
This works much better except I am on my guard these days because there is a new milk snake near the shower! And bear scat near the garden! I tell you, it’s a jungle out there.
I moved the wildlife camera but have only picked up deer munching AROUND the garden, not in it. I spray liquid fence (cayenne, sulphur) around the perimeter and it works.
My last strawberry rhubarb pie had a 2 x 2 twill crust and was delicious.
I needed some supports for my garden and sort of wove a twig tuteur. I decided two would dominate the raised bed so one sits between the tomato plants.
Summer has arrived, and with it, we have frequent afternoon thunderstorms – and dramtic skies.
We need the rain for the flowers.
Then I can spend more time weaving instead of watering the flowers.
