Crazy as a Loom

She's Back!!!!!

Yup, Tammy came to the studio today, to weave with me. It is her weekend off, and don't tell her I told you, but I KNOW she misses me.
And the studio, and the cats.
And just being able to work doing something you like, in a relaxing environment.
And it continued to rain, all day.
Some of us just don't care if it rains or not.
And one of us wants to make it perfectly clear that "the queen reigns".
And I suppose, if you climb up high enough, noone can ignore your "queenliness".

I wove rugs all day, tied lots of fringe, and contemplated the turn of events.

I took the soup home for dinner, and we made a chef salad to die for, out of all the stuff I bought yesterday, and with a loaf of Villa's bread, which you can only buy in Glens Falls, NY, we had a feast of sorts.
It was all pretty delicious.

My husband said that this is what they mean about making lemonade, when life gives you a bunch of lemons.
Hmm. OK, Bill. You might be right.
Dinner was wonderful, at any rate.

Tomorrow, I am going to look at a loom.
I know, I know. I don't need another loom.
But that is just not a consideration, if you know what I mean. It doesn't even enter into the equation.
This one is a Weaver's Friend, if I am guessing correctly, from the one picture I saw. I am very curious, and the price is appealing, so you never know, it might just be coming home with me.
I'll let ya' know. It allegedly has no treadles, the shafts change when you pull the beater bar. Too cool.
Husband is about to watch a movie, and I am going to work on some pinwheel towels.

I'm just glad that you & Tammy are back. You certainly bounced back from yesterday. I know that it was a disappointment, but you have made the best of it. Not only did you have all your shopping and cooking done, but you had extra weaving time!

Hi Hilary,

Thanks for chatting yesterday when I called looking for advice!

I so enjoy your blog and am very sympathetic about the squirrel situation. Hope that one has been remedied!

Your supper sounded delicious! And i love your kitties....and as far as another loom goes, who says you have to "need" something to deserve it? I think if you want it and have the room for it and it will spark more creative juices, then go for it!

I would say, you are sitting pretty high yourself! Hope the loom works out, you have done well.
