More snow is coming tomorrow. Yesterday was a beautiful day here with temps in the mid 50′s and sunny. I cleaned some in the barn which felt good. I need to get the errands done today. My electric snow shovel is sitting on the porch ready to go.
More on the twine rug
I have been working on the rug today and am finally half way finished. Another nice thing about this loom is when half way and the weaving becomes more difficult you can just turn it around. I can clearly see some mistakes in the twining but since this is the first rug of its kind for me it won’t bother me, I am looking at this rug as a learning experience.
I usually am watching something on my I-Pad while I am weaving or hooking. This week its the BBC documentary on the Himalayas with Mr. Palin. I thoroughly am enjoying it and wish I was 30 years younger so I could have a trip there.
Today I finished the other draft dodger. I filled it with balsam and rose petals. My friend Fran suggested the balsam, I think it’s a brilliant idea. The sand is so heavy and there will be a sweet scent of balsam and roses in the air. I think that the balsam could be mixed with spices too, that would be interesting. Now I am thinking of making them for my most draftiest of windows.
CHRIS and ETSY
My grandson Chris is going to help me by phone today with my Etsy account. I opened an account years ago but never did anything with it. So this week he is going to help me get it up and running.
I am spinning more Elliott for the rug today. It’s a banner day when I get to do all the things I love to do for part of the day. Have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog. Carole
