One Loom Less
After LouAnn, Pat and Tina helped me move the desk in to the back bedroom Saturday afternoon, I swept and mopped the floor, then brought the bookcase in. I hung the bulletin board I bought over a year ago, hung up the photo of me with my first fish and connected all the necessary cords.
There will be no more reproachful looks from a loom I don't understand, no more trying to vacuum under and around its bulk. I feel as though I missed a great opportunity, but I simply didn't have the time for it.
Speaking of time, I must say that I will be taking a sabbatical from the Tuesday Weavers for a while. My real job has become too large and stressful to allow me to give up a day off to work at the Center. I need two whole days off to relax. clean the house, take care of business and be with the pets. I will of course miss my friends, but will keep you all posted on my progress here. I hope I can spend the time I have here to weave at home more. I'll let you know how my new projects progress.
I hope someone will take over the hand-manipulated lace linen towels on dear B*&%$@, who I will also miss. He's a good loom with a bad braking system. He doesn't get near enough respect! I think I left my copy of Weavers' Craft with the instructions on the lace techniques, so it shouldn't be too hard to pick up where I left off. Take good care of B*&%$@!
Take care of each other, too, and keep a spot open for me! I'll return as soon as I can!
