I had some help early this morning, to mow the lawn, and cut brush. They lasted about a half hour, and the sky opened up.
It rained for a long time, so I took them home.
Another day, I guess.
Over the weekend, I wove at the studio, all alone. I quite enjoyed it, I must say, after the somewhat stressful week.
There were no blue jean rugs on the shelves, so I decided to spend some time on them.
These are all 2'x3', approximately. They are usually a few inches longer than that. I love the way they all come out a little differently.
I know that some weavers separate the shades of blue. The lights, the darks.
But I don't. I like the haphazard, spontaneous, hit and miss look of all different shades of blue sewn together.
There is a tutorial of sorts, on my web site, www.crazyasaloom.com that shows how I cut and sew them together. I presently have a lot of jeans cut and sewn, and another bunch in the barn that need to be cut and sewn.
Unfortunately, my sources for second hand blue jeans has somewhat dried up, so by next year, I will be scrambling to find more. I think (hope) I am good for this year.
I am kind of trying to get my groove back, if you know what I mean. I have been feeling a little stressed, overwhelmed, not myself.
Sometimes when I feel that way, repetition is a good thing. It helps me to quiet that uneasy feeling.
Are you bored yet???
