Candee Is Dandy!
It was a beautiful Spring day for a road trip down to R&M Yarns for a few things for our stash. Candee was all excited about the previous weekend at Southeast Fiber Forum...she and her Mom, Phyllis, had a booth in the vendor hall. She had received one of the mug rugs we contributed to the Forum, and was thrilled that Tina and I were part of the Tuesday Weavers. We were thrilled that SHE was thrilled with the mug rug!!!! It's so nice to get feedback!
I bought another 13" shuttle and got six more 5" bobbins....I love the balance and feel of this Schacht shuttle. And, I found some variegated novelty yarn to use with some future scarf warps. She was sold out of the thicker mop yarn, but Carol and I have solved that problem for now by using the rope maker to twist the finer mop yarn together.
By the way, the small tote bags are coming along! I'm braiding the handles and prepping more weft. That warp has so many possibilities!
Enjoy your day....it's still cloudy here, but I think it will clear up later. I need some weeding time today, too!
