I can now share with you some of the gifts I made for Christmas! I had a few very busy weeks with lots of projects going!
Monday’s arrival was inevitable despite a weekend of fun that included seeing the new Star Wars movie (which, by the way, was fantastic), mailing packages off to the kids for Christmas, doing a bit of shopping, and warping my loom for a new weaving project.
The weekend also included some delicious Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder. So good and easy, made even better by the use of ingredients I preserved!
My list for today includes things from the mundane task of laundry to the making a new (and exotic) chicken recipe for dinner, with a bit of weaving and some knitting thrown in for good measure.
Hope your Monday is painless!
If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. – William J. Clinton
Last week I shared that I had made several mistakes in a weaving project and my decision was to go back, fix the errors, and begin again.
Now here it is Monday and I am happy to announce that I fixed the problems – it was not easy, but it was not impossible! I made the errors because I over thought the threading pattern and the process.
The hurrier I go, the behinder I get – Lewis Carroll
Last week, I beamed my warp (weavers speak for winding the warp threads on the back beam). This week, I made a valiant attempt at a tricky threading of the heddles. Attempt being the key word.
I made multiple threading errors that I should have noticed when I did my few picks of plain weave. Again, please take note that I said should have.
