Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

McGregor, My Dawg

My dawg, my trusty companion died peacefully yesterday afternoon. He rallied two weeks ago but decided his time had come. I will miss him desperately.
Greg followed me everywhere and was often underfoot. But he loved me and I him. He was my bud.

double weave table cloth

I finally ordered the weft. That's the good news. The bad news is that Web's only had 2#s of the daffodil in stock in two different dye lots. Okay, plan B. Use all three colors. Bad news: out of the burnt sienna which I have been calling copper. Who knew? So, I order the two different dye lots, and boy-oh-boy are they different, and the green which they call Lizard. So, I'm casting my fate and plowing ahead.

unhemmed rug............just using up odds and ends. Bad photo, mediocre rug. Threading error to the left. Hummphhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I see the counting threads are still attached to the right side.
