This morning, I awoke to temps in the middle 50's and little showers that wander by every once in awhile. The view from my front porch shows a hint of the color to come in the next week or so. The showers are supposed to be out of the area by the afternoon and temps in the upper 60's. Another beautiful Fall day!
The Hollywood Hot Pads were a hit at the Museum, and I sold the only double binding one I had ready. This is a good warp to weave on for short amounts of time. You can always tell where you are in the sequence!!!! I need to prep some additional fabric strips for the remaining pads....another dive into the fabric stash!
And, in the meantime, I'm working on a design using Davison's Kirschbaum's Design #3 for a table runner. My niece is an author, and goes to a lot of book signings. She wanted a table runner to mark her space. I thought I would do this one in white carpet warp so she could just wash it without worrying. The great thing about Swedish Lace is that you can play with the blocks and make them larger.
See that empty square in the upper left corner? I have graphed it out to make it large enough to have her name embroidered in it. That block will be the center of the design. (Thank goodness we now have Shirley at the Center!!! That's her business!) But, we all know that planning a project does not equal WEAVING the project. Could this be done in time for Christmas?????
OK....I've got some things I HAVE to get done this morning....and my day is ticking away. There are other deadlines besides weaving.....sad, but true. It just makes me appreciate my weaving time more.
