Here is Pat's belt that she started this last weekend, doesn't it look great! This is the pattern that I had in mind when I planned what I was going to teach. There were several weavers, who shall remain nameless, who did their own version of the pattern. Some of them did it on purpose, others were hearing challenged. Anyway I learned a lot as a teacher, and they learned a lot as students.
Here is the goulash layered with mozzarella in the dutch oven with some fresh basil from Sharon's garden, all ready to put in the oven.
We had a special treat today. 8 yr. old Isabelle, and her 5 yr. old sister Sophia, came to visit us with their family. Here you can see Isabelle weaving with Bonnie.
Another shot of the two deep in conversation.
Both of the girls were really quick learners, and we hope that they can find a bunch of weavers in their town. Our center has a kids camp every summer, maybe there will be something like that for them in their town.
Sheron and Bonnie are looking at the yarn for this years challenge scarfs. They are trying to figure out what they want to use. I think that Carl has already chosen his and is giving his advice.
Maggie has started weaving on her linen towels.
Well there you have it! Pretty much blow by blow of the high points of the day. Ila, Carl, Ann and Pat are doing placemats on their looms, but you have seen those in previous posts.
Carol was sick today, and Linda is still recovering from her knee surgery. Lanny and Alan are off on summer trips, we will be glad to see them all when they get back.
Lou Ann is planning a run of 8 shaft scarves, and will begin to wind that warp next week. I am in a cleaning frenzy, I am basically just going around the room and putting things away! ( and finding a lot of stuff!) I am not sure how long this frenzy will last, but between that and winding rug warps and helping out, it will be a busy summer.
Happy weaving, Tina
P.S. After everyone left, Bonnie got some of her crazy shag rug going:
