Crazy as a Loom

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Not all work.

Dentist appointment cancelled, by them, so the day was mine.  I shouldn't have been so happy about it, but I was.

Finished a place mat warp, which will leave an empty loom.   That's a good thing, since I need to teach sectional warping this weekend.
Of course, I couldn't get 4 place mats out of it, only three.  Someone will want them anyway, I'm sure.

I would like to empty one more loom before the weekend.
Hmm......think I have a dirty lens??  There is a weird smudge in that picture.

If you look closely, you can see Jinxy's white paw on Kizzy's.  Is that too cute, or what???
She's such a girl.

Then I took a break and had lunch with my friend at the Olive Garden.  I love their soup and salad option, and I leave satisfied, and not feeling the least bit guilty.

When I came back to the studio, I decided to play with my shawl warp, upstairs.

I am sure another order will come along.  They always do.  I used to worry about it, but I don't anymore.
Just sometimes, when I come off a string of custom orders, it takes me a bit to get acclimated to weaving whatever I want. Have to get my sea legs under me, so to speak.  I love it, though.  My head spins with the possibilities.

Just to let you know, I am followed wherever I go.  Stalked, if you will.  There's that smudge again.

Then I got a tip that the Peter Harris clothes store had a whole shipment of J.Jill clothes highly I left a bit early, and went to check it out.
And it was true.  I got a pair of black jeans,  and four tops, for $80.  If you know J.Jill at all, you know that's a steal.
I am still waiting IMPATIENTLY for my orthotics, and trying to baby my foot.
It was stormy, and gray, and windy, and sunny, and a little rainy, and omg WARM here in the lovely northeast today.  I am so psyched for summer.
I'll bet you are, too.

we had a lovely cool day today in NE Texas - high 60s! of course it was after major thunderstorms, hail, rain and tornados last night, so I guess it was a nice break. tomorrow will climb back to the 80s again.

i just love all your 'helpers'. they're so beautiful. i'd never get anything done as i'd have to be stopping constantly and petting heads...

I love J.Jill but hate the prices, that is a REAL steal. Good for you.

Love that headboard, but I've said that before.. the smudge... weird if your lens ISN'T dirty.

So.. how many cats live with you? In the house. I think I have it right at three..?

Lucky you - what a great deal on J. Jill, I am jealous! You must be living right..... :) Maybe the smudge is a ghosty! Our cat mews at ghosts in the house periodically (hops onto the back of a chair, looks at an imaginary spot on the ceiling, and sounds off!), I finally broke down and bought a bottle tree, set it up outside, put a few wine bottles on it, and hope it works! Have a good evening....

Great buy on J.Jill--unfortunately our J.Jill closed some time ago!
I love the soup and salad at Olive Garden also--just have to bypass the bread sticks!

I love that quilt! It looks so cozy.
Love Olive Garden, but it's too far away from me to visit often. We don't have J.Jills here.

Beautiful quilt,
those cats look spoiled. Terrible tornatoes in Alabama. Hope they missed you. yvonne

okay I must say I am in LOVE with the bed and quilt and really in LOVE with your cats. That's it I am moving in. Never mind me, I'll be w/ the cats......

Honestly, I'm envious of your JJill steal. You got our fuggy weather, but aren't we fortunate to not be in the weather pattern the southern states are experiencing!

Welcome to my world.
