Now that you know my secrets.........
yes, I am a little nuts.
I think it is too late to change that.
With all my looms at the studio, and yes, we have stopped counting at this point, I still have one at home...
you know, for those times when you need to weave.
After the work day.
At home. When everyone says you are supposed to be 'resting'.
So I have my little Leclerc compact loom all warped up for towels.
And I use the hearth for all my paraphernalia. ( I have always had a soft spot for that word: paraphernalia)
Since I am loving this pattern, when I finished with the tan/brown/yellow warp, I tied a new one on.
I love the rhythm of the treadling on this. My feet fly.
The pattern is one I modified from an old Handwoven magazine. 8/2 cotton, unmercerized. I am weaving them 36" long, so they will be generous dish towels.
Weaving them is so wonderfully peaceful.
Some nights I go to bed earlier than I would really want to, but I can't take the headache one more minute. You could say that I long to escape, and sleep is the only way. I am grateful that I CAN sleep. And most of the time, I can.
This, however, has me up at the crack of dawn. Since it was forecasted to be 88 degrees later today, I decided to take my Roy Boy for an early morning walk.
My phone doesn't take too bad a picture.
And trust me, I am not this clever....this was a mistake, but I liked it anyway.
I like walking early, there aren't many other people out.
It's just me and Roy. I like it that way.
I have come to understand that quieting the noise in my head is quite a project, but one, I think, worth tackling.
I am going to make it my business to spend more time this summer in the great outdoors, because that is one of the most calming and serene things I can do for myself.
And I promise to take you along.
Now if I could just figure out how to 'uninvite' this headache.........
