My reward was this lucky lunch: black-eyed peas, cornbread, greens and fried cabbage. (The blackberry cobbler was just my reward for the day!) The menu was so popular that they ran out of collard greens right before I came in (that's why I had turnip greens) and I got the last serving of black-eyed peas!!!!
I heard one guy ask if there was maybe just ONE pea left in the kettle!!!!
But, I had such a fun time talking to folks about weaving, that I still haven't finished that warp! One young couple from North Carolina told me about a friend of theirs that is working with the Smithsonian to set up an American Textile History Museum. He has rescued a bunch of old looms from the textile mills in the northeast. This is something I want to find out more about! You just never know who you will meet when you are at the Museum of Appalachia!
Last week I wrote about my goals for the new year, and come to find out, two of my Tuesday Weaver friends also want to play around with LACE! Marie, Maggie and I are starting a study group to explore the weave structure of lace. We aren't too sure the exact direction we'll go with our study group, but I guess we'll find that out, too. If any of our weaving friends would like to join in, our first meeting is Sunday, 12 January, here at my house.
What a great way to start a new year, right?
New things to learn and meeting new folks!!!! Life is good!
Happy Weaving to you in 2014!
