Today is my big sister's birthday....I won't say which one.
I talk to her several times a week...sometimes about important things, but most of the time we talk about just about everything.
I called her just to talk about Tina's "adventure" and the new grandbaby. I HAD to talk to someone about that!!!!
Yesterday we had a great conversation about weaving....she doesn't weave! (We both crochet, though.)
Just as it started to pour rain, a Dad with his SIX kids came riding up on their bikes to the Heritage Center. The four oldest had their own bikes, and Dad had a little cart hooked up to his bike for the two youngest. I got them settled in the rocking chairs, and they started weaving like crazy. (I think Dad was relieved!!!) The big sister caught on very quickly, and starting helping her sister...she's the one on the left. I thought about my big sister, and how she had always done that, too. Later on she came back by and showed me how much she had got woven. I had her pick out some more colors to take with her to finish up at home....she was grinning from ear to ear! As they got ready to leave, she helped her Dad get the two little ones settled in their cart and checked on the others as they put on their helmets to leave. Just like my sister: Safety First!
She called me once last week to tell me about a yarn shop she found in Huntsville....dangerous!!!! She knows we have a fiber addiction.
A friend asked her about my tote bags....I wove one up for her last year after she saw my sister's bag. My sister told her about the whole process....from planning, winding the warp, dressing the loom and prepping the rags. All of this from someone who doesn't weave.
She also told her how I like to take leftover yarn and make scarves. Of course that means that no two are alike since I'm just using up what I have collected.
I'm thinking that my sister needs to sit down and throw the shuttle the next time she comes to town. I'll have to pull some of her colors from my collection and get a warp ready for her.
She can weave her own birthday present....don't you think that's a great idea????
Happy Birthday, Joyce!!!! Have a great day!!!
