Finished up a runner for a customer today. She wanted one like the Early Dawn scarf but wider and shorter and thicker. It actually turned out wonderfully well. She wanted 14" x 68" so I put on a warp 16" and wove 78". Then I washed it in hot water and set it to dry. When it was almost dry it was 14 1/4" and three inches too long so I threw it in the dryer. Then I cut out some of the weaving for a couple of inches and twisted the fringe and it is PERFECT! I'm so happy! I love it when a plan comes together!! :)

Plus we had a chat with Noah in Australia the other night. We skyped for 1 1/2 hours. It was just like having him at the kitchen table! There wasn't the usual delay where your mouth moves and then several seconds later the sound comes out. And I sat far enough away without my glasses on so I couldn't really "see" the mini me in the corner (very disconcerting that mini me). Gary and Noah solved all the world's problems so that is taken care of and I totally enjoyed the visit! Now we have to set up to skype with Adam and Alicia and Ava. Or maybe just Ava. That would be good.
Meanwhile Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We are having a quiet night at home...Project Runway is on so...
