It's a windy, blustery day today, cloudy with promise of rain by noon. I'm so glad that I'm inside with a stack of things to work on. I don't have to go out if I don't want to!
So, we're almost there, the end of the show season for another year. I am so excited!! I have a stack of things I want to weave and sew this winter and I can't touch them until after the show this week.
I took some pictures of the first rugs I wove on Nilus last week. I know, it's kind of a weird black and white rug. However, the white is really natural or a very light gray. It was an experiment. I had shaken all those loopers and then divided some of them by color. I had wanted to weave a rug with black in it. Each light section alternates from gray to natural. You can't see it from a distance, but it's there.
The other rug was more black. I started with black, then a band of light gray, band of natural and the center all black. Not having had black loopers before, it was nice for a change. I do have more black loopers and will weave them this winter but most of those lighter loopers will get dyed. I wove 3 of the rugs with the loopers I'd dyed before.
Then Saturday we went to Artisan Guitars so DH could try out some new guitars, just for fun. It's always nice to see what's out there, especially some lines of guitars that he doesn't own but wanted to see how they played. In doing that, he was able to play a guitar owned by Tony Rice, one of his heroes. Camera phones aren't as good as my phone, but I did manage to take the picture and get it onto this blog. That's a huge accomplishment, in my opinion. He was a happy camper!!
Here's to the last show of the season!
