Ah, Sunday

aToday was a quiet day in the studio, just me and four needy cats.  Five, if you count Next.
And of course, we have to count Next.

I spent most of it upstairs, in the big bedroom, weaving on the Macomber.
Finished this turquoise shawl.

I love those days when I take Roy for a walk BEFORE I do anything else.  It feels good.

I usually drink tea with a little milk, except that there wasn't any, so  I went with it straight up.

Then I decided to finish off the warp with a little fabric.
I haven't figured out what I am going to make out of it yet.

Now here is a little video I took with my Iphone, and I admit it is a blatant promo for double ended bobbin winders.   This is a Leclerc, which I can order for you.  It is fantastic.

Just watch.  I can't tell you how much time I have saved using this, and how much I LOVE it.
Sometimes the simplest of things make me happy.

                                                                                         Ignore this doesn't work, and I have
                                                                                                    been unable to remove it.

Hope your Sunday made you happy, in lots of little ways.

I always enjoy your pictures. Your surroundings are so pretty and cozy.

I have an electric bobbin winder that my hubby made for me with a little motor and an old sewing machine pedal. I can't imagine winding any other way. You're right, it saves so much time. It's fun too! :-)

What a restful-looking day. That bobbin thing is cool.

Love the bobbin winder...still using my drill! Even after 20 years!

I love the picture of the table with the lamp on it. I want to live there. And having all those looms nearby would be a bonus.

It's nice that Roy let's you walk him when you like. Our dog has an internal clock, 4:00 is walk time, no ifs, ands, or buts.

you are a woman after my own heart with the colors you choose and the animals who own you ..

Hey Hilary
Wasn't able to view the video you had taken. Possible could be me but I thought I would write a comment just in case....
Looks like a wonderful day you had!!!
