I did manage to get the first of the three table runners woven and I’m really happy with the result. This is the end of the runner with the 3 inches of border showing for the hem.
His surgery went very well and he’s happily ensconced in his ‘big blue lazyboy chair’ while his favourite CBC radio program plays. Yup, he's in the same situation as Susan at Thrums husband Bruce, right down to the same knee!
Oh, one more thing he got done on Tuesday was that he mounted my Leclerc Electric Bobbin winder which had been in storage since last October. We had been brainstorming like mad to think of the perfect spot for it and coming up blank, every spot was either in the way, not near an electric outlet, too high, too low...well you get the idea. Then Michael wandered into the studio and spotted my Leclerc Holds All and it was one of those Eureka moments! It looks like it was made to fit there, and probably was, duhhhhh!
The white alyssum is still in bloom and the fragrance of honey is amazing as soon as you walk out the door, the front garden is looking pretty good and I am holding off on winterizing it too.
We pulled out the tomatoes last week, but we still have this great pot of chili peppers. The small ones are Thai hot peppers and the big ones are Spanish sweet peppers.
Sounds like you are twins! Both our hubbies hobbling around and healing.
We had the luxury of knowing when Bruce's surgery was so did things at a more leisurely pace.
Your front garden was amazing this year... I'll be taking some tips from what you have there to reinvent our gardens. The deer came through last night and ate things down to nubs (again)
Another twin thing: I have snowflake twill on one of my looms right now too. Its such a classic!
Those runners are gorgeous!!! Are they a 12 shaft pattern? Lovely!
Thanks so much, it's an 8 shaft pattern that can be found in The Strickler book 'A Weavers Book of Eight Shaft Patterns' from Interweave Press.
The table runners are lovely!
lovely weaving as usual :) glad to hear your hubby is on the mend :)
