Wanted to finish my shawl warp, and I did....took 3.....no, 4......shawls off the Macomber. They are rolled up waiting for me to tie fringe....maybe later.
Then I finished the warp on the Gallinger, the one that came on it. I could have cut it off, but I hated to waste it, especially since it was so colorful.
So I wove three table runners on it.
There was also some stuff already woven on the front beam, and I pinned the hems on that too, they are all rolled up, waiting for me to hem them. Maybe later.......
I didn't have the same threads that were used in the warp, but I did my own thing.
Don't sound surprised now.
When I get in a slump, color revives me. It does, I am not kidding.
My daughters are stepping up to help me with my mother. Taking her to church, calling her to talk, just engaging her in different ways, so all her attention is not directed at me. It gives me a break.
I have taken on the role of caretaker, and don't feel much like a daughter these days.
So this helps, it helps a lot.
