We seem to be making up for the lack of rain in June....it's a good day to get things done in the house!
The forecast for the next few days gets a little brighter, though. There's only a 50% chance of rain for Saturday! And, by Sunday (when the kids and I are grilling out) there is only a 30% chance of showers!
Tina and I will be at the Museum of Appalachia for the Fourth of July Anvil Shoot and Celebration. Besides the Anvil Shoot, there is a big ceremony at noon led by the Sons of the Revolution.
Tina will have her little red spinning wheel, and I'll be weaving on the Rocker Beater loom. I have a warp for more placemats on that sweet old loom!
I'm going to get my go-bag ready for the Museum this afternoon. I want to make sure I have plenty of weft ready to weave!
Here at the house, I'm weaving on the Simply Elegant huck lace mats. Neutral colors are always a good bet.
Weaving this huck lace is just fun to do!
The tiger lilies are putting on quite a show this year. I have a huge clump that has come up, and finally they are starting to bloom. But, with all the rain, you almost have to get under them to see all the glory.

I was really hoping we would get a response from someone out in blog land about our donated object. It reminds me of the peg looms I have seen online, but the pegs do not have holes for warp threads. Maybe this will jog someone's memory.
I wish all of you a Happy and Safe 4th of July weekend!
