Rainy Outside....Cheerful Inside!!!

  Although it was a gray, rainy, chilly day, you would have never known it in the Studio today.  In our world, it was bright and cheerful!
  Carl got busy weaving the rug from the strips cut last week.  Meanwhile, Pat was busy cutting more strips for another rug for Carl's loom.  She also worked on a stack of blue jeans that had been donated.

 Pat will be weaving towels on the little Macomber after we get the warp wound on the back.  Tina got the spool rack set up, and the threads through the warping box...then it was time to just wind a LONG warp on the one inch sections.  We'll finish that next week.

  Carol got her towel warp tied on to the front bar, and she's ready to start weaving, too.

Betsy, Sharon and Harriet were having a lively discussion on their side of the Studio.  Must be weaving talk, I'm sure!

  And, here are the LADIES....all in a row!  The goal is to get the shawls and scarves woven off before the Foothills show.

  And, the second row of our LADIES.....just getting it done.   Note that Roz (on the right) is really hard at work.  That's because Ms. Ila "cracked the whip" and told Roz to get it finished!

  And, she did just that!!!!  The placemat warp was finished before the end of the day!   We need to get Ms. Ila to do that more often!!!
  This is the Pup that will go to the Foothills show, so we'll be putting a mug rug warp on it next week.  We always demonstrate weaving at our booth, and mug rugs are always a good bet.

  And, before you know it, it's time to fold those Pups and the baby up, and slide them in the aisles.

  And, just to keep it all REAL, the sign up sheets are started for the Foothills show.  We have three days at the show, and the booth needs three folks per shift.  Now....what will we be bringing to the show?????

  Sharon and I saw this recipe on Facebook, and we thought it would be fun to try.  These are the only ingredients you need!
Apple Spice Cobbler
2 cans apple pie filling
1 box Spice Cake mix
2 sticks butter (8 oz.)
  Dump the apples into the crock pot.  Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the apples.  Cut the butter sticks in half, and lay on top of the cake mix.  Cook on high for 2 hours.
  The recipe calls for putting the lid on the crock pot, but we found that it keeps the cake part from cooking.  The next time I do this recipe, I will lay a wooden spoon across the top of the crock pot and place the lid on top.  That will keep the heat in while allowing some of the steam to escape.
  Regardless, it was yummy!!!  
  Tuesday Weavers work very hard and need to keep up their energy!!!

Happy Weaving!

Looks like you are busy. I really like the look of the rug Carl is working on. The Apple Spice Cobbler sounds great.
