I Apologize, Marie!

  Just as we were packing up to leave the Center on Tuesday, Eiko held up this book and asked if anyone wanted to buy it.  She had double ordered, and had this extra copy.  Before anyone else could even look twice, I announced, "Sold!"
  Marie didn't even have time to turn around, and I was paying Eiko! 
  One of my biggest challenges in doing mixed fiber warps is what to use for the weft.  I can create beautiful warps, but when I start to weave, it doesn't weave like I thought it would in my mind.  And, I had seen this book offered before, and it sounded like it might help me out with my short comings.

I haven't had time just yet to dive in, but I have thumbed through the pages, and I think this might give me some insights into doing my mixed fiber warps.  So...Marie.....I'm sorry I grabbed this book before you could even look at it.  You can borrow it....OK?
  And, speaking of Tuesday....would you believe that we had snow flurries the rest of the afternoon???  In fact, at one point, my yard was covered with snow!  Then the sun came out and it all melted away.  But, then it began to flurry again.  This went on the rest of the afternoon!  The sad part is that the temps dropped down into the 20's and nipped those beautiful blossoms on the ornamental magnolia.  Now, all those blooms are brown blobs on that tree.  Oh well.....I got to enjoy that beautiful color for a week, so I won't complain (too much!)
  The spreadsheets are done, and it's time to pack away all those receipts.  The accountant will give me the news this afternoon....but, tax time is done for this year.  Just maybe.......I will get to spend some quality time with my looms.
Keep your fingers crossed.....
Happy Weaving!

Ooooh, I missed that! I'm sure it will be perfect for exactly what you need to study. I need to dig around in my books, I know I have a few you could borrow as well.

You snooze you lose. Have to be fast.

Well, if you hadn't spoken up, someone else would have. And you'll put it to good use!
