DH and I love to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. We often go Thursday and Saturday mornings. The neat thing about them is that they don't mind if you split a meal. He gets his pancakes or grits and I get a biscuit and we split the eggs and bacon. Not a bad deal!
This morning he's off because of Memorial Day so we went over there. I think that the picture portrays Memorial Day so well!!
My friend Helen called the other day. She said that a friend she had taught to weave years ago was downsizing and she had a loom for weaving trim like they used to make to edge a bedspread that was done with candlewicking. Would I like it? Sure. So Friday we met at the lace guild meeting she filled my van with things she'd inherited.
I don't know anything about how to weave trim. Do any of you? She used this frame alot and cut off a piece of trim from her stash to attach to this frame so I could see how it worked. maybe!
So what's new on the looms? I have this on my Nilus and am starting to weave it off. I love the color interactions with the black. The purple in the middle is just awesome. I've already got an idea for another combination that will have to wait til fall to weave but I'm going to add it to my list. This is the 3rd colorway of a progression I figured out a couple of years ago. I've already got a warp wound that will go on Nilus next. I hope to have this off by the end of the week and the next one on because I have an order for a top out of caribe that will go on after that. Placemats might have to wait a bit.
DH is out on the deck pressure washing it so we can stain it later this week. Then he'll spend the rest of the day working out some music on his guitar. I'm planning to get some work done around here today and we're going to grill some chicken maybe for tonight. We'll have to do it on the grill on the cooktop because we got rid of ours outside. It was nasty! Guess we'll go to Walmart and get another one for his Father's Day gift once the decks are ready.
We're staying in tonight! I don't cook often but tonight I will.
Hope your Memorial Day is turning out to be special for you. Family and friends and special people in your life is what it's all about!
