Meanwhile, Margi and Frieda and several others put the finishing touches on hair bows, pins and ornaments. These, too, will be going to the show.
Shirley and Bonnie quickly got the mug rug warp on the Pup....we always weave at the show! Carol figured out a mini Ellen's pattern to use with the mug rugs! (It is based on Tutti-Fruiti pattern--the one we use for our signature placemats.) You can just barely see Harriet in the background: she's winding more yarn for the straw loom kits.
Then, it was over to the counter to make the straw looms to go in the kits. Linda was in charge of counting the kits and making sure they had their straws. She also made the stickers for each kit.
Carl and Lanny were the only two actually WEAVING today!!!! Sometimes, you just put your head down and weave! Lanny needed to do a count to see if he had enough placemats already woven....I think he decided that he needed just a few more!
Carl brought a tapestry that he just finished to show us after lunch. Isn't that wonderful!!!
And, yes....we did have a potluck lunch today....and I didn't take even one picture of the spread! It was great, as usual.
It looks like we're ready to go.
Stay tuned for updates on the show!!!!
*****A big shout-out to Betsy....we're thinking of you! We hope to see you soon.
