Crazy as a Loom

Thursday, October 20, 2011

You don't like the weather????

Well, not to worry, in a few minutes it will change.

That was the order of the day.  Sun, warm temps, dark clouds, a downpour, a chilly wind, more sun.




The only thing sad about October is that it doesn't last long enough.


I have had a sinus headache for 3 days, so I wanted to do something that made me feel better.  So I didn't do what  I probably should have done, I did what I felt like doing.
Yay.


The little Gallinger loom was needing a warp, and the upstairs hallway seemed like a lovely place to be.


I wound the warp, threaded it, and started weaving.


I was pretty pleased with the results.
Do you like it?



In case you have been wondering about Also/Lucy, here she is.


She is a sweetheart.  Unfortunately, my four beasts do not like her.   I should be more specific, it's 3 of them.  Sydney likes everybody.
But she has really gotten attached to my friend, Bonnie.  It's amazing, really.
I can go into the room, pet her, and she seems happy in a quiet way.
Bonnie comes in, she rolls on her back, she suddenly becomes Miss Love Bunny.
Today, Bonnie brought her a treat, some toy mice, and some catnip.
And she informed me that she had changed her name.
SO, I think these two have bonded.

Say hello to Smokey.

I love happy endings, don't you??

I like so much here. Love the upstairs landing. Gorgeous. What you wove was so pretty. Smokey is a gorgeous cat and I love when a cat falls for someone. It is for life. I suppose she will remain at the shop, will she? That would be nice, I'm sure. We had the same weather here today and Kane and I got soaked to the skin. It looked so nice for awhile and then wham! Hugs, Deb

I love your beautiful weather colors there! Our weather has been a bit shakey today. We had a couple of earthquakes. Little reminders...we are not in control. And ...get prepared dang it!
Smokey is a good name for that kitty. Can your friend Bonnie take her home with her?

I'm happy to see a boat shuttle. I felt enormous pressure for a while from other weavers to adopt the end-feed shuttle system. It pleases me to see yours.

I have a theory. You have the prettiest weather because the settlers discovered you first.

I like your weather - pictures. That sky was fantastic and the autumn colors are something special. And your cat look just like mine who sleeps away the day. I hope your headace has gone away. To do something fun is often a very good medicine.

Yes, I love them too. Your weather is like ours and your captures of it are impressive. I love the warmth of your wide plank wood floors and the coziness of your studio. It's a good place and I hope some day to see it in real life. xo

Smoky is a beauty, when is she going to live at Bonnie's house?

Karen said...

Is Smokey going home with Bonnie??? :-) !!!...

and we've had the same weather, although I love it, and I've had the same darn sinus headache.

Lovely sky photos..!! Coming to NY next week, hope the colors hold!

Oh boy, do I like those warp colors. I especially like the way you get color pops with the variegated weft. What's it going to be when it grows up?

Welcome to my world.
