Crazy as a Loom

Pot luck.

I haven't been sitting around all week eating bon bons. Honest.
I have been weaving sock rugs.
From autumn

Lots of them.

These are what I call Sherbert Rugs.

I love them. The colors are so soft and restful.

I also had the "Quick Books Lady" come for a couple of hours.
She helps me to reconcile it at the end of the month. And she helps me not to feel so stupid.

Someday I hope to get it. Quick Books.

She says there is hope for me.
But I am inclined to think that I should stick with weaving, and have her do it for me.

My daughter and I have been talking about motivation. About children who are not motivated to do their school work, even though they are totally equipped to do it well. Children who don't pay attention, who forget what they are supposed to be doing, children with incredible potential, who seem to be in trouble every day for not doing their work.
From autumn

I have never had a problem with motivation.
Betcha didn't know that, did you?

I got some great ribbon delivered today, in 5 colorways. I can't wait to weave up some wraps, and scarves and shawls with it.

I have so much free time, ya' know.

Tonight, it was just my Mom and I for dinner. DH shuffled off to Buffalo for some conference.
I fed my mother. She is happy as long as whatever she gets includes POTATOES.
I ate some of my own invention.
First I sauteed onions, garlic, zucchini, and red peppers. Then I threw in some cut up fresh tomatoes, then I added a can of drained black beans. Topped it with some feta cheese.
From autumn

It's not all that pretty, but it is wonderful on a rainy evening like tonight.
I think the hooks for the potholder kit are being made as we speak.
I am going to work on the instructions tonight, and hopefully, all you who are waiting will be getting an email soon.

Unlike rugs, food does not always have to be pretty. Sometimes it just has to smell good.

My grandson had tons of problems focusing. They finally, although they had always said they would not, had to put him on a light medication for A.D.D. It helped tremendously, like day and night in the child.

I was delighted to find your blog tonight. I have a small loom which would make wonderful kitchen rag rugs. Do you cut the socks before you weave them? I looked back at your trip to Maine, and the photos of Summer Fun. Your granddaughters are both so sweet and these photos are so lovely.

I just recently found your blog and have really enjoyed reading some of your posts. The rugs are beautiful!

I cannot believe how many rugs you are able to crank out - impressive to say the least!

Welcome to my world.
