Gene wanted to know why we had spent all that money way back when after he saw this little wonder! ;-)
Without further babbling, here is the project from start to beauty shot.
|Self leveling cement|
|Tile laid awaiting grout|
While grout and cement waged war on the floor downstairs, I did get a wee bit of sewing done. The last of my cut out Hey June Cheyenne shirts.
|Another Dear Stella fabric with foxes|
Look at this lovely little spindle that friend Michelle selected for me from Wanda Jenkins.
It's a Jenkins Aegean model done in a beautiful Big Leaf Maple. Michelle included some sumptuous fiber too, Shetland from one of her flock, Vienna. It is lovely to spin even for this spindle novice. Thank you so much Michelle, you may have started another little fiber obsession!
Since the 25 boxes of tile had been taking up critical space in my back weaving studio, once gone I went to town rearranging.
I like the set-up much better. Buttercup and Sheila work nicely together.
The old mid century modern dresser friend Mary gave me before she abandoned us for Arizona is perfect for holding some specialty yarns, rag fabrics and weaving bits and bobs that needed a place to call home. Still a little more organizing but pretty much done.
Speaking of Buttercup, her place mat warp is off and a new rug warp is being measured to go on sometime this week.
These rugs will be for me I think. I could use a few small rag rugs here and there. And here is a quick blanket shot of all the stripes.
I'm well into the center body of the blanket which is done, of course, all in natural.
Song for this post served up praying we can get back to the place of hope. and kindness. BTW, all the verses are sung. This is my way of sending you all a big hug. And don't forget to vote! ;-)
Parting shot:A Photo bombing Jack!
