Ahhh, The Weekend!
Since the temperature has started downward--though not very far downward this weekend!--I've been spending more time in the yard. The guy I hired to mow this summer did a mediocre job, showing up every three weeks, and mowing down camelias and sage bushes in his hurry. I cranked up my mower and took back control of the situation a few weeks ago. This weekend, I scalped the hedge on one side and had to go to HD for some Round Up, the only thing my garden Guru, Jeff Ross, said would work on my Bermuda grass problem. Problem being, it grows everywhere I don't want it to be.
All this is a long way of saying that I haven't woven a pick in the last two weeks! But I have made plans! I was so inspired by Tina's baby blankets, and knowing two of my co-workers are having baby boys born this coming February, I've decided to wait on the double weave sampler and plan some overshot baby blankets. I've been wanting to use some of the bamboo I bought earlier this year in a woven project, and I think it would be perfect, since it's anti-microbial. I just need to decide on the pattern color: blue or white-on-white? Maybe both? Now, THAT would be cool! Blue borders with white-on-white centers! Makes me want to go wind an warp! See you later!
