I sneeze when I look at the sun. I do. Honest.
It is called Photic Sneeze Reflex, and it is a genetic trait that affects 18-35% of the population.
So my question is............are you in that percentage?
Today I did some weaving. I call this style of rug "the wave rug".
I cut the strips of fabric thin, and wind them together on the shuttle, changing the colors each time.
It is a way of using many colors in a rug without the rug looking striped.
It is one of my favorite rag rugs to weave.
My new helper/apprentice person, whom we shall call "L"......has been working hard.
Cutting jeans, making Hip to Be Square Looper Loom kits, sweeping up, moving selvedge from the attic to the barn loft, and best of all, helping me weave BIG RUGS.
Hallelujah. And she knows EVERYONE in Kingsbury. I am not kidding.
She has found several people to clean loopers for kits, and even people to sew blue jeans.
Oh, my....I may actually get caught up and organized.
All week long, my dear mother has complained of this pain, and that pain. She told me that she would be in the hospital soon. Several times, I asked her if she wanted me to take her to the ER.....she declined. One night, she actually said, "not now, maybe later" and I knew it was because she was going to watch "Dancing With the Stars".
So I made an appointment for her with her doctor. This morning, as she was getting ready to go to that appointment, I said to her, make sure you tell him all your concerns.
She turned to me, and said....................are you ready???????
"What the hell am I going to the doctor's for, anyway?"
Wine, tranquilizers, a sandy beach on a deserted island, a huge plate of big fat peanut butter cookies, a half gallon of pistachio ice cream.
Are you catching my drift here?
Then the heating experts were at the studio to install one heater here, and another there. But they left for lunch and never came back. Said they had an emergency.
After dinner I realized that I hadn't closed the outside door to the cellar, and that the skunks would be cavorting down there tonight, so back to the studio I went.
So, how was your day????
