Not really, but it is time to tie the fringe.
I like to tie them as soon as the rugs come off the loom. If I keep on weaving, and then have a stack of 10 or more to tie, it somehow is not that much fun.
These are the cottolin towels I just finished. I am somewhat addicted to this pinwheel pattern. I think I am going to make them again in a different color combination. Eventually I will tire of it, then I will move on to something else, but for now, it keeps on amusing me.
Before I knew I needed a new roof, I had ordered a window for the shop area. The three windows in there are vintage 1790, and they are in pretty bad shape. I love the wavy glass, but the wind blows right through them. I broke this one last week, when I was trying to wash it, so I decided to replace it with a special order window that looks like it belongs here.
It was a fairly mild day, and I had this room shut off, so this open window wouldn't tempt any of the cats. I think they are mostly scared, and wouldn't go near it, but I don't want to chance it.
Here is the new window, ready for DH to prime and paint. The opening was anything but square. As always, this old house proposed a challenge. It looks good though. Now I just have to decide if I want to replace the two old windows on the front wall.. .......wavy glass vs warm house.
What a choice.
I am totally done with renovations for this year. I hope. My checkbook hopes so, too.
But sparkling clean windows are very appealing. The loom in this corner will make a lovely place to work.
Everything looks better through crystal clear glass. The world looks better. Sometimes I wish I could give the gift of clear glass to someone I love.
Watching someone you love go down a path that appears to be certain heartache, is very difficult.
There's that pink elephant again.
But I am choosing not to participate. Not today, and not tomorrow.
I love making choices. There was a time back when that I didn't feel I had any, and then there were times when I couldn't seem to make the right ones, no matter how hard I tried.
I think age has a lot to do with it. Now, choices seem so much easier.
Love that glass.
