Trust me, even though this post may make me look like a production diva today......it isn't so.
Remember the loom I gave away last month to my good friend?? Well, she has her own sheep, and she had a room full of yarns that didn't turn out soft enough for knitting.
So I helped her put a warp on, and these are her wool rugs. They measure 30" x 45" approximately, and they will be $95.00 each when I get them on my web site.
Some of the wools are natural colors, and some are dyed by her.
I am following each one with a close up, so you can see the colors.
I really like them, and she is getting addicted to weaving. Who knew????
I am so happy that she loves it, and loves the loom. I am glad I gifted it to her.
I am not sure which of these I like best, in fact, I like them all. They are a contrast to the bright colors of the sock rugs, and the wool is beautiful.
Her farm is called Simple Pleasures.
This one does have a touch of purple......can you see it???
Today was not a good day.
If there is one thing that drives me crazy, it is the 'not knowing'. One day is bearable, doable.........the very next day is right from the hinges of hell.
I took pictures of rugs, put some on my web site, and generally putzed around, but my head hurt so bad, that I finally gave up and came home.
I don't like to take pain meds, and I rarely do. I have this aversion to any drug that might be habit forming.
But today I surrendered, took two Fioricets, had a cuppa tea, slept two hours on the couch, and woke up with the EDGE off.
Not gone, but a little relief means so much, it's hard to explain.
I was thinking today, to the best of my ability through the pounding, and decided that PAIN is the great leveler.
It's an equalizer.
Things that you would normally worry about, or think important.........not so much.
Concerns that would occupy your mind.........nope, not really.
Every thing fades.
I can't say that I really feel like myself at this point.
I am hoping this that the doctor who specializes in headaches will say, "Yup, I know EXACTLY what the problem is."
And just in case this post was a bit too black and white, I threw some Chunky rugs down, and snapped this shot.
And a Forest Floor rug, for good measure.
The sewing machine broke again this morning......still must have some thread stuck in the bobbin case, and I wasn't up to dealing with it.
So for any of you that wants a tote bag that you saw, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
tell me which one you want, tell me the strap color, and I will put it aside for you.
If you are signed up for my newsletter, you will get one soon with a FREE SHIPPING on these new totes. If you don't, just mention it when you order, and I will apply it. I won't put them on the web site until I can finish them all.
You should get a box to curl up in. You'll feel better.
