Last week I was weaving whenever I could, trying to finish that placemat warp on Nilus. For weft I was using 5 strands of natural yarn, mostly carpet warp. Carpet warp is just great for things like placemats because they make them nice and sturdy, especially when the weft is nice and thick like mine was. Three of the yarns were from bigger cones that I had inherited recently from a weaver who had retired from fiber work. The other 2 were carpet warp cones I had on hand. I had several of them so thought I had plenty. Till I ran out of weft....
However, the yarn's just arrived. I will weave it off this morning!! Yes!! and be ready for those weddings happening next year!
Each year I love to go to Stanley's Greenhouse and pick out a few poinsettias for our home. I was talking to my Mom the other day and mentioned I'd gotten a Christmas Rose poinsettia and she hadn't seen one so I promised I'd post a picture for her to see. So, Mom, this one's for you. Isn't it gorgeous?! It sits in the window above the sink so I can enjoy it when I do dishes. Yes, I do dishes once in awhile!
Until next week,
