This was the start of the day....and maybe the only "normal" time of the day. Yes....that's Pat and Carl--cutting more blue jean strips for his rugs. This is a normal activity here in the studio.
But, look at the table in the background! That's a clue! And, this was just the beginning!
The weavers started bringing in their woven items. Tags had to be attached, and inventory sheets had to be written.
Thursday is set up day for the Fall Homecoming at the Museum of Appalachia. We have a LOT to do before Thursday morning!!!
Woven items were brought downstairs from the shop and inventoried before they were packed in tubs.
We also moved the shelving units into the weaving annex so we could get to them Thursday morning.
By the end of the day, we had it all packed and ready to go.
Boy....do we have our work cut out for us!!!!!!
One more normal thing: cutting off a warp! Molly's towel warp is now history. She's got five towels and two sections of oops that will make a lovely purse (or a cuzy or a hot pad.)
Having "normal" can be a good thing.
