It really is cold out there, at least for us. It's just an hour or so before noon and the temperature is below 20 degrees and going down. The wind is kicking up and that wind chill will be wicked!! People here in the south aren't used to this kind of weather. The roads are covered in black ice but there's not that much snow on the ground. We got about an inch and a half but that's all. It's the rain that came beforehand that froze plus the cold, cold wind that's going to get us!
So the Tuesday Weavers won't be weaving tomorrow at the center. We'll be home, weaving on our own looms!! The Christmas party will just be postponed an extra week. Anticipation!!
I talked to my family last night in Moose Jaw. If we think we're cold....their wind chill when I talked to them was minus 52. Might be celsius but at those low temperatures there isn't a difference. It's very cold!! Hopefully they will warm up like we do about Wednesday!
The rugs are off the loom. The ends have been serged but I haven't had time to pin and hem them yet. Later this week that'll happen and then some of them will go to the Art Market Gallery for sale. The first 3 with the brown, green and gold fabric weft will be put aside to go to Canada to my sister's friend. She'll get her pick and help decide what to do with the rest.
Today I'll get the warp wound and on the loom. Hopefully threaded too.
So you know what I'll be doing tomorrow instead of weaving at Norris. I'll be weaving at home! I have 10 windows to do, 20 panels. The goal is to get them woven in the next 2 weeks. We'll see how far I get!! After that will be all the handwork, measuring and stitching the casings for hanging them up on the rods.
Until next week, stay warm and keep weaving!!
