Getting In The Spirit
"Yes she can, but she can't get up!"
"What did you do with the Texsolve?"
"I thought you brought it!"
"I can't reach the harnesses!" mutter, mutter, mutter
Hey guys....that will have to wait a bit. Let's finish up the project on Julia (the Baby Wolf) so I can get my scarf challenge on, then we'll get Mz. Sally going, OK?
Mz. Sally has a placemat size, multi-colored warp which is threaded in Italian Diamonds from Davison. This will be a fun project when it's up & going.
I think the weaving has been good therapy....I still can't weave more than 5-10 minutes at a time, though. The funny part is that it is the "beating" which gets to me. With overshot, you really need to beat firmly, and that really jars my arm. I'm sure the right hand beats are much tighter than the left handed ones! But, today, this one comes OFF the loom so I can get my scarf on!!!!
Nothing would do but the guys had to have a Christmas picture made with Rudy and Dolph. This year I'm just using the Alpine trees....there's no way I'm wrestling with the 12 foot tree!!! The guys didn't seem to mind.
Not such a bad way to spend a rainy, gray Saturday.
Hey....Bucky! Tromp! Where did you go?
OK....gotta get busy.........
