Friday was the day we started filming for the short videos to go with QR codes when I am not at the loom house. We got a bunch done. I also got the band going quite well. It is 1" wide; now I can finish sewing the bag! ... Read more

But many things done. All but one spinning wheel spun on (and started a new one) and two out of three looms worked on. I bit the bullet and moved the Emily wheel to a different spot in the room and added the dressed distaff so now I am spi... Read more

Weaving the second
Thursday, July 02, 2020      7 comments

When I started the second scarf I had measured very carefully the skein of yarn that I wished to use and knew I had enough yarn for the scarf. Until I measured how many weft threads (the back and forth ones) I would be getting to the inch -- 10.... Read more

Our normal walking place right now, because it has wide paths so we keep to one side and people we meet keep to the other, has two ponds in the middle of the walking paths and a river on one side, plus a forested area along with prairie. The pra... Read more

Spending time
Friday, June 19, 2020      11 comments

On Wednesday we drove four hours (two hours one-way) to go to a garden. Seems like a terrible waste of gas/time. But mentally it was needful. We wore masks all the time in the garden, unless there was absolutely no one around. About th... Read more
