So which winter is this? We're having another cold spell for a few days with temperatures getting close to freezing at night. We generally have a few of them this time of year. We already had Dogwood Winter. So is this Blackberry Winter? Someone said they're not blooming yet. However, our raspberries are so I'm officially (ha!) calling this Raspberry Winter, at least in our yard. Not sure what it is in yours!!
I've gotten one of the royal blue warps done. I actually got the accent yarn from Yarn Barn. It's in their regular catalogue and I love the way it works with the blue. I added an extra vest to this warp for myself! I've got alot of work finishing up other pieces I've woven before I'll get this one finished, but am so looking forward to wearing this vest!!! On the down side, blue buttons are hard to find. There are so many different blues. I'm not sure what I'll use for buttons on this warp or the next one that's already on the loom. That warp is blue, light purple and purple. I'll be weaving it this week as I can.
We haven't brought most of the plants out from the greenhouse yet. We're waiting til later this week after the temps get a bit higher, back to normal. The ferns wintered through pretty well and will be added to the back deck. I'll probably pick up some new things for the door to my studio again. Not sure what it'll be this year but I'll post a picture of it when I get it done!
I've got the heat on today in the house, at least for a few hours. However, later this week might turn the air conditioning back on again!! As long as we don't have snow, I think we're going to be ok!!
My view is all closed in again with the trees full of leaves. We won't have a view again on 3 sides of our yard until late fall. As long as you're not claustrophobic this is a great place to live!
I'm going to try to get alot of weaving done today. I"ve already got another warp wound and looking forward to getting it going too....
Until next week, happy weaving!
