First I did 2 cloths with blue weft, the 2 with white weft with the blue stripes put in as well. Now I am just using the white weft and doing plainweave cloth, and no blue stripes!
My strategy seems to be working as I am beginning to see the knots on the back beam! Yipee!
I haven't been able to weave much this week, lots going on, with the 4th and all. Also my son and his wife, and 2 grandbabies are moving to Texas this week. I will be seeing them today before they go. I will get back to weaving next week, when it all settles down.
One thing about participating in a daily/weekly blog, is that every day I am confronted with a picture of the real me. Not the one I think I am, not the one I wish I was, nope it is the real me that everyone else sees. Even though it has been bothering me since November of last year, I see no difference in my appearance! Imagine that, thinking about it does not make a difference, I have to do something, something that I can continue doing for the duration of my existance here on earth. To that end, I have begun to increase my dietary fiber in ways that I can look forward to,(i.e. yummy chocolate fiber bars) and I have begun just this week to jog, oh so slowly, the 1.5 mile walk I do with the pups most days. They are loving it, and it isn't horrible, I hope to take it up to 2 miles in a couple of weeks. That is it! That is all I am going to do. I am not going to tell myself that I can't eat this and I can't eat that. It doesn't work well for me that way, I suspect though, that as I start to feel more fit, I may begin to make better choices about what and how much is on my plate.
My mini goal in all this is to be able to look at myself on the blog header this coming November, after one year, and see a little less of me, after all I want to be able to climb the stairs to my studio for many years to come!
I read somewhere recently, something to this effect. In 1 years time, you know you will have wished you had started it a year ago.
Happy Weaving, Tina
