August Weaving...Stained Glass Series

As soon as the weather started to change I got some energy back.  I don't do well in that hot, sticky weather at all.  On top of that the sisters have been fussing and feuding over how to care for my 92 year old mother.  Should she go to assisted living?  Should we get someone to live with her?  Cut back on her medication, etc...and to add to the mix, there are only two sisters who are making decisions and the rest of us at times become frustrated that we are not being heard.  However, my Mom, when she was more aware, put these sisters in charge so that is the way of it right now...

Meanwhile I am weaving up a storm getting ready for Christmas and cold weather.  Still struggling over some very difficult towels which I have not photographed yet...I will wait until they are done.  But the chenille scarves totally delight me.  Wonderful to work with.  Soft to the hand.  And I have a weaver friend who is coming over to work for me for a while so I can get caught up.  (Thank you, Katie!)  I love making my warps and she loves to weave them off.  Though I weave also, I just can't keep up with my ideas, and I need to get ahead with my inventory.

The farrier is coming today for the horses...will try to remember to take some photographs!  And the trainer is coming tonight for Miss Ellie...we worked her last night and she was wonderful.  So progress on many fronts!
