I made my way back to Tennessee on Wednesday. I was getting everything stowed for the final descent, knitting tucked away in my purse, purse in the backpack so that I really was bringing only 2 bags on board. Everything was going well, I crammed my bottle of water into the backpack and I shoved it under my seat. When I pulled it back out again after we landed, there was water dripping out of the bottom, yikes! I could do little then but, I made my way to the bathroom as fast as I could. Here were the damages:
1. One pad of graph paper ruined, not much on there but an overshot draft I was working on. That can be replaced.
2. One notebook with a little water damage, not too bad.
3. One laptop computer, with all my pictures and other goodies too. Didn't seem to be wet, but when I got home, all I have is a blank screen! I am glad I have the regular computer, not nearly as handy, but it will do for now. I don't know if the laptop can be salvaged, I am going to let it dry out for a few days and talk to some computer people.
I have been weaving today, it feels good after a week away. I finished the blue bread cloth, and made a white one with blue stripes.
I have also been winding my scarf challenge project for the end of the year.
I will be using these two colors of rayon that were in the piles of stuff we are trying to use up.
Now I just need to choose the last color, wind it, and then wind the black bamboo that I have to showcase those beautiful colors. You will probably not see anymore photos of this project until the reveal next December.
I tried to find a mug to use as my inspiration for the Christmas gift "Mug and Mug rug", but I didn't find anything that inspired me. So I will start looking around for a Tennessee mug this week. You won't be seeing that either! That sounds so mean doesn't it!
Well that is what I am up to these days, until next week I wish you all, Happy Weaving, Tina
