Rainbow Scarf for Nancy...

All finished!!  Washed, dried, pressed, tagged and ready to go!
I really have slowed down quite a bit in my weaving...
I think the horses have gotten a lot more attention
though and that's a good thing.  But
customers, I know, are waiting
longer for my work.  







Mailed today and now working on a wide red scarf
for another good customer on Etsy...Walked in the woods
to the pond on my new road today!

Looking back at the house and new barn.
Can't wait to drag the road and seed it...but
right now it is still drying out.  It will be
a wonderful path for the horses!!!

New Scarf for Kori...

OK I do not have any idea where this is going...my customers are much more adventurous than I am and sometimes they help me design...I hope to work on this today because even though it is sunny and bright out I have no one to ride with and feeling just enough energy to muck out the barn and maybe, maybe, maybe move some more sand into the yucky part of their paddock.  The old barn is still a mess but I expect them back to work this weekend.  Meanwhile...





So cheerful!  I love it!

The barn is down...

8 hours later the barn is down.  It looks like a bomb went off.  


 But I now have this amazing view of my field
and having the hulking, dark broken barn
out of my life makes me very happy.


And they will be back (maybe tomorrow) and
will work until everything is cleaned up.
Yay.  This is a load off my heart.

Barn Demolition Preparation!

The equipment is coming for demolition tomorrow morning!!  Finally!  There goes my weaving weekend, however, because we've also rented the bobcat so we can scrape the top layer off the paddock and put down a layer of sand.  Hopefully that will alleviate the horses slipping and sliding for a while.

Should be interesting taking this monster down.  And I can't wait to see the view when it is cleaned up!

Rainbow Shawl is Done!

Well...I had fun with this one for sure!  It is almost ready
to go...just have to tie the little knots on the ends
of the fringe...




So...one more to weave...hope Kori likes
this one...and back to designing packages
for the triangle loom.  More on my class
tomorrow...

Rainbow Shawl Continuing...

Done with the weaving on the first shawl...there is one more to go.
Cut the first one away from the rest of the warp.



Pulling the shawl off the front where it was rolled up.


The shawl is now washed, dried, the fringe is trimmed
and I just have to put tiny knots in the fringe yarns
so they don't ravel and sew on the label.
Kori, if you are reading this I will photograph
Sunday and send them to you!

Meanwhile I'm preparing for my triangle class
tomorrow all day...baking, cleaning, setting up...
hoping no one is terribly allergic to my kitties...
rearranging the kitchen to fit the stands.
And of course have to go for a ride
on Django!

Rainbow Shawl/Scarf

I am in love with all this color and texture!  My customer says
she is "drunk with color!"  What a way to go!

Threading the heddles

Done.

Sleying the reed.

Done.

Tying on the front rod.

Done.

Beginning to weave!

Crazy weather the past two days on the farm!
Squalls coming through then bright sun,
then more rain and rainbows!
