Totes and Taxes
I really like the way the plaid plays with the warp! I have a bag of plaid bias balls in my stash, and I tried the light blue first. This tote had a nice, crisp look when it was finished. On the loom now is a Stewart plaid, which is really exciting. I basted some mop cord in the handles for braiding, and that gave them just the right amount of weight for a sturdy handle. So far, I've gotten five small totes from this five yard warp. There's a little more left on the warp beam, so I've got to decide if I should go for #6 or weave some fabric. It might be nice to add some pockets.....one for a cell phone and another inside for those "little bits" that we all carry around. Like I said, I've got some ideas dancing around in my head for some future projects.
But, April has now arrived, and that means TAXES. The dreaded T word! I'm supposed to be working on that ..... and I have the big part done. It's the pesky little things like mileage and donations made during the year that I still need to pull together. Hopefully, I can get all of this to the accountant next week, and be all DONE. I'll even be ahead of the deadline! Yeah!
Happy April Weaving!
