Crazy as a Loom

Here they are .....couple of updates to things you wanted to know, or things I thought you wanted to know.

1. MRI.  

No results yet.
Don't you just love waiting for things like this????   I refuse to get wound up about it.  It'll shine when it shines.

2. Not having to tie on to the AVL.

The AVL has this "sticky beam" which I had never seen before.  I'd heard of it, but couldn't really
wrap my brain around it.
Well, it works.  It really does.  It is similar to sandpaper, kind of.   So when I got the 8/2 cotton threaded through the reed, I just pulled the threads over the sticky beam, pressed them down to make sure all the threads were touching it, and cranked it tight.  Then I just started weaving.
O.M.G.    You bet!!!!
 What a treat to not have to tie on.
I'm sold.

The other thing about the AVL is that there is no brake release.  The tension is terrific, and you just advance when you need to.  The tension stays the same.  It's really unbelievable.

 Now I have to admit, that this towel made me wonder if I still have all my marbles.  Red and orange?

Not sure about it, not sure at all.  It was so intense, it was over the top.  It tired me out.

 I only did ONE of them, and started weaving with bright white. Ah, sweet relief.
This felt like a cool breeze.

The BEST news is my hot tub got fixed today, and my neck is sccccrrreaming for it.
I will sleep well tonight.

Yay for the hot tub. I like the red and orange but can imagine it's a bit tiring on the eyes when you have to stare at it for a long time.

LOVE the towels, I hope there are some left when I have the funds for them.

From past experience bad MRI news is delivered immediately, so here's hoping delayed news is good, though I know you are hoping for answers.

No news is good news! The orange and red is intense and lovely but I do prefer the white and red. Hope the hot tub was as relaxing and enjoyable as it looks.

Relaxing sounds like a plan...enjoy the hot tub and "think about it another day, Scarlet!" XOXO

I have a tub full of zinnias on my patio that are the very colors of that first towel--intense, yes, but beautiful.

Rita said...

Sounds like that treasured new bit has made your life a lot easier. Wonderful!

I love the red and white one. Is that going to be for sale someplace?? ;)

Deb said...

Oh yes, the red and white is much more calming. I can't wait to see what you do with Fall colours. Glad the hot tub gives you relief. Enjoy!

Unknown said...

Gosh, I feel as if I have bad taste, but I LOVE the orange and red one. I also like color combinations like lime green and bright blue - maybe I'm reverting to the 60s!

I keep checking to see if you are ok, I certainly hope no news is good news and you are busy enjoying yourself-
