busy as a bee

October 9, 2019

I’ve been busy – but there isn’t much to show for the effort

if you click on the picture you can see the beautiful pattern on the wings

the weather has changed, it’s much colder and everything (including me) is slowing down

first, I need to finish this warp and get a new one on the loom for the Studio Tour on Nov. 3rd

an hour of happy weaving, then the loom had a meltdown and stopped weaving altogether

it took 3 days of frustration to figure out the problem and get back to weaving

maybe the loom was telling me it was not happy being ignored for the summer??

I’ve finished spinning the Cotswold/silk blend – 217 grams or 7.65 oz.

it was some of the nicest prepared fibre I’ve ever spun

I’ll order more but need to wait until some over due projects are dealt with

too tempting to just sit and spin

the tapestry is back on track –  I rewove “etc” and it looks much better

and out in the garden the roses are putting on a final display

although, in Victoria, they can bloom all winter, depending on the weather

    Funny–I know you’re busy but it all looks so serene! That bee photo is amazing!

      Kerry – in the greater scheme of things I guess it is serene but it just doesn’t seem like much is getting done. I love the bee photo too, there are actually 2 bees, just the eye of the second one in the background.
