Although I'm not in the "rat race" world any more, I still revel in the glory of Saturday mornings.
As I sipped my first cup of coffee this morning, I was gifted with this sight....a hummingbird at the feeder outside the kitchen window. Yes...that's fog. We've had a lot of rain this week, which also meant cooler temperatures, thank goodness! But, it looks like we're back to July temps for the coming week. I'm sure we'll have high humidity to go with it.
I've spent a lot of afternoons this week just spinning away on some new art yarns. This is my newest skein of yarn that I finished last night. It's still drying.
I'm still working on the ball of thrums from Cindy's warps. That is an exercise in patience....I work in short bouts of time, then I have to walk away. But, that's OK....I don't have a deadline.....just an image of what the yarn will look like when it's finished.
One of the joys of spinning is the Zen like peace you get when you're in the rhythm. My thoughts hop here and there. I can see why it is called "wool gathering" after I saw a field in Scotland where bits of wool were caught on the thistles. That's a lot like my thought process when I'm spinning.
And, each group of 12 heddles were looped at the top.
I'm thinkin' that I need to slide these heddles off onto another stick so we can document how they were done.
In fact, I guess we need to document each step of our work at the Museum....for us, at least.
I can see that this will be a fun project full of new things to discover. Don't you think a colorful rag rug will look cheerful on an old loom? Just thinkin'.........
