  NO....this isn't a video, but the picture was captured from the video.  You can watch the whole piece here:

  I have been hooked on the First Ladies series since it started last February.  It comes on Mondays at 9 p.m. (EST)  You can imagine my delight when they were showing this clip from Eleanor Roosevelt's room at Val-Kill.'s a snail trail/cat track coverlet folded on the foot of her bed!!!  Mrs. Roosevelt had many interests, and she was a great supporter of regional arts and crafts.  If you haven't taken a look at the series, the website is also a delight.
  When I was telling Carl about this Tuesday on our ride back from Norris, he told me that he got to see her at an event.  He didn't remember what the subject of her speech was, but he remembers that it was an impressive day.  I think she was a truly remarkable woman.....and I LOVE her coverlet!

  I am finishing up my warp of Dogwood mug rugs.  We've got the Foothills Fall Sale coming up in November.  I wound a new warp for a run of snail trail/cat tracks mug rugs, but I haven't started warping the loom just yet.  Maggie reminded me that she likes my ipod holder, which uses two mug rugs that are joined together.  I might have to reserve two in pink for her.

  I love playing with never gets boring!

  But, I have to admit, with the sudden change in weather, I have been working outside the last few days.  Remember these poinsettias that I put outside last spring?  I pruned them way back and told them to "grow or die."  Well....they grew like crazy!  And, they look so much better.  They are in for the cold weather now, and I'm looking forward to the top leaves changing color for Christmas.

  I don't think the cacti will wait for the holidays to bloom.  They were already setting buds when I brought them in off of the porch yesterday.  (That pretty much was the whole day....bringing all the plants in before the first frost!!!)

  Maybe I'll get that mug rug warp on the loom today.  I'll see what I can get done.
  I do so love overshot........

Happy Weaving!
