|Baby Brother: October 2010|
Needless to say, we did a lot of porch sitting, since the weather was much milder here than he has in Texas. And, on Monday, we drove up to his favorite place in the world: Norris Lake! The Dam wasn't spilling, but it was glorious without being too hot. We finished out the day by grilling hamburgers, which we both enjoy.
I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends...and we had such a fantastic time together.
The bamboo that I dyed with the avocado did not come as as dark as I thought it would, so I may have to rethink the weft for that shawl....or dye some additional bamboo. (Now that's a thought!!!!)
The colors of that warp actually remind me of Norris Lake.
The soy silk is on the left side of the picture. I'm trying to come up with a Swedish lace pattern for that warp.
And, the Tiger Lilies made their appearance this weekend, too.
I think they just wanted to show off for all the guests.
They are one of my favorites, after all!
And, I guess my kids really DO know me! My son got me the Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook, which is just too much fun! I can spend hours looking at all the different kinds of sheep from all over the world! And, my daughter found me the Cat book, which is really funny since Tina spun Biscuit's fur into that incredible yarn! I might have to do some more with all the fur around here!
As I was house cleaning for the weekend, I got a good look at all the fiber, thread and fabric that I have stashed. Even if I were to weave all the time from now to my last day, I could NOT use it all up! I guess I am blessed to have good things to do, and wonderful folks to share it with.
Lots of little blessings!
