After yesterday, I said I was NOT going to get under that Toika, not for any reason, no how, no way.
Luckily, I didn't have to.
The weaving went well, from beginning to end.
I sit on the right, "L" stands on the left. I can't stand, because I can't reach the treadles if I do.
We chatted and wove, took a lunch break, and chatted and wove some more.
So, what do you think?
It measures 7' x 11'5" not counting the fringe.
I am tired and thrilled to have it done.
Bravo to us!!!!! We did a great job!!!
Tomorrow might be time for a little cleaning, organizing, moving things around. It is supposed to snow here......again. Exciting.
Oh, yeah, the inspectors were on duty today. Just in case you were wondering. Not much gets by them.
A couple of you suggested that I try to catch Bubbalee in the solar house.
There are a couple of reasons that isn't a good idea.
First off, I don't want to 'spoil' any of her safe places. The loft, the porch, the solar house, are places where she feels safe. I want her to stay warm in the solar house, so I don't want to make that a place that she is afraid to go.
Secondly, if you have ever trapped a feral/stray cat, their fear makes them do stupid things. In the Havaheart, they jump and hurl themselves head first at the metal doors of the trap, until you cover it with a blanket. They they quiet down.
Bubbalee could break the glass and get seriously hurt.
So where ever I put the Havaheart, and I am going to try again, it won't be in any of her safe places. She has found a home, and we all know there is no place like home.
And I have to accept that I might never catch her. And I will have to be OK with that.
At least, she won't go hungry, and she will have a safe place to have her kittens.
Some times you just have to let go.
