When my kids were little, we used to play a game with them while we were waiting in restaurants. "How many things can you do with this?" Everyday objects can have many uses and be used in a multitude of ways. They were quite good at this, by the way!
My stash of thrums was getting rather unruly, so I dumped them all out on the bed and started sorting by pleasing color groups. Every bag that I opened got resorted with another group. This is just a small sampling of the yarns I have received so far, but I bet you already have thought of some projects you might like to do! I LOVE all the different colors and textures. I know that some of these will be respun into art yarn....but some of this might we woven into a mixed yarn scarf. So, stay tuned for further developments!
I spent the weekend finishing up some projects. The table runner for my niece is now in Shirley's capable hands. And, I wove and finished up two tote bags. I really enjoyed watching the colors play on this tote.
John is looking so sad right now since I haven't tied the warp back on just yet. I'll just put that on my to-do list (with everything else!)
Mz. Emily got a spa treatment after the runner was cut off the loom. I noticed that I had some shafts that were sticking, so everything got cleaned and oiled. I'm sure she would love another project real soon! (And, I just so happen to have a summer winter project that would LOVE to get woven!)
Spring is just around the corner. Be sure to notice those little signs that are all around you!
Happy Valentine's Day!
