Let me explain.....
When we got the Tempurpedic mattress it made making the bed a real headache. Everything was SO tight at the footboard and the mattress itself weighs a flipping ton. I had finally had enough and marched down into our messy basement and found a piece of thick oval wood handrail to be exact, that could be a new foot rail in place of the old big hand painted footboard we had.

Weaving has been progressing slowly. I am doing a little runner on the play warp.
I've gotten quite a bit further than this picture shows. It is slow going with all the color changes but it is fun weaving just the same.The pattern is from an old 2009 Handwoven.
In the sewing salon, muslin's of new to me pattern , McCalls 7093.
I'm liking it. The first edition was okay,
The front is too short for my liking but the pattern provides a tunic option. I literally used an old oxford cotton sheet for this.
I had cleaned out and pared down two of my main closets. I have lots of good sheeting for muslin's. The second edition is done as the tunic and in a scrap piece of linen I was given for free.
It's beautiful stuff, fine, silky and produced at only 36" so had some age to it. It was pristine though and this sweet sheer version is an undershirt. I need to bind the neck and do the hemming.This version is a bit too long, but I'll get it just right on the third go round.
It's topping a new pair of linen pants done in charcoal grey rustic linen. TNT pattern.
On other garment came out of the salon last week. In time for Super Bowl 50 I might add. My "Broncos" tunic using Tina Given's Peplone pattern.
I had so much fun with this. The western fabric had been in stash forever, the grey blue linen a leftover piece as was the red linen which I used for binding.
And look, Denver won! What a defense! Peyton Manning, retire a winner, please.
We are having a February thaw. The horses are just starting to shed. The white areas release first. I have no idea why. And here's this months fox.
Such a cute little calendar!
