Pieces and Parts All Gathered
Things are getting done! Remember last week and the tiny tree tapestry? My mom lined it for me. How great is that? Talk about support. She said that it was something she knew how to do and that my learning curve would be steep for just one, but that when I had 20 tapestries to line she would show me how. 20 tapestries! I know she believes in me, but that made me laugh. So, if I decide to keep lining the small tapestries I probably have 5 years before I have to line my first one.
She also went with me to shop for a toilet today. My mom bought me a toilet! Again, how great is that? Nothing says love like a new toilet. She said my dad would have gone out and bought me one.
He passed in 1985.
So, Harry is not warped, and I did not weave today, but I feel very good.
I did gather up the fabric, and carpet warp, that I would need. That's about 5 pounds of sheets on the bench right next to the tension box that will help to put the warp on the sectional beam evenly. I picked blues and greens because the friend that told me what she believed water dreams are about, loves blues and greens.
So come take a look next Tuesday!
And just because they are adorable, and I love them, and I displaced them when I started messing around the loom... here are the pups!
