When I was at Convergence, I got to see a Cold Mangle in action, at the Vavstuga booth.
It was very impressive, but since I don't have one, and this one was a gift from my cousin, I am now the proud owner of an antique mangle. And it gets HOT. I am going to use it to press my woven towels and such, if I can figure it out.
I think it has some issues, but hopefully we can work them out.
For some reason, it appeals to me.
Every now and again, as if my daily headache weren' t enough, I get the jagged light in my right eye, which has always been the "aura" I have experienced when getting a major migraine.
It happened yesterday, so I took some Motrin, and headed upstairs to lie down.
You don't see much of Kizzy, my manx kitty. He isn't exactly sociable.
But if you lie down anywhere at the studio, Kizzy is quick to join you.
He is a handsome boy. And he has a sweet disposition, with everyone.
He likes to push on me with his feet. It did not keep me awake.
I am not by nature a napper, unless it's for a migraine.
Then I am.
Kizzy stayed with me for the whole time.
L and I did some serious cleaning and organizing this week.
Look what we found.
I couldn't wait for my treadles to come, so I sent DH to Lowe's.
Until my "real" treadles come, these work just fine.
And I am loving this band loom.
Do I need another addiction, really?????
This is too much fun.
