I promised some pics of the outdoor crew, I didn't get everyone but I got some beauties of my little red pony.
He's 20 you know and I think is looking pretty darn good.
Dandy doesn't know he's moved into the "senior" realm and I sure am not going to tell him.
Big Sal the AVL Production dobby loom left a little over a week ago. It is nice to have all that space back. Even broken down she took up a fair amount of floor space in my back room. The Murphy loom is happily out there with a prayer flag warp on him. I got it wound on and tied yesterday, even a little test weaving and four I have made two threading errors in the first two inches. I transposed the order in a portion and will have to cut the whole thing off, and rethread those couple of inches.
The new aprons have been installed on the 32" Macomber and they look great. I need to replace some rubber pads and then we are good to go. Maybe I'll get a small maiden warp wound this week. A big maybe....
The pillowcase warp is now well into the third case, a pretty sunny yellow and I'll certainly get pics
One of the triple weave blankets I made back in 2011 has been bound in linen and given away to a happy couple for their first wedding anniversary.
Hopefully it will be used and enjoyed and worn out!
My Mother came through her third hip surgery pretty well and after a long recuperation is scheduled to come home Friday. What a long miserable summer she has had with this. Fingers crossed that other than regular PT she can go back to just enjoying life, and some shoe shopping....;-)
Sewing has been slow, a few things finished, many more cut and awaiting to become something. I have a few new patterns in the mix I'm excited about. Here is one most recent make.
A lovely Japanese cotton paired with some great medium weight lightly crinkled linen pants. The tunic is another modified Sewing Workshop Florence.
I have also taken the Sew House Seven Mississippi Ave dress and done some modifications to make a simple camisole.
A staple in my wardrobe in all seasons. This one a light linen. And oh heck, how about a selfie wearing it and the crinkle linen pants.
The blouse was made last fall and is the Sewing Workshop's Liberty pattern.
I can't promise that going into the fall we'll get more regular with posts this year, but I'm sure going to try. And I do keep up with the blogs I read even if I don't always comment.
Parting shot: Oh NO! She found it again....
