To Do List

A picture of the piece I recently took off the loom, with its warp ends woven in. The colors aren’t accurate. I was wrong; that IS orange before the yellows start. Funny what you see when you start doing the finishing. They are all shades of red below the ikat part. After the reds come shades of gold-y yellow. You can see the warp ends here.

The numbered list below is what I originally started out with, but I decided it sounds too much like whining. So, here’s what I actually got done today:

  • yarn store to check out fixtures (and yarns, of course)
  • box for box tapestry weaving
  • tray to put into mailbox (postman puts mail way in back where it’s hard to get out)
  • nap
  • started on printer, but had to walk away in frustration–will finish tonight (I just finished with the printer installation for one computer. Hope to get the other one to find the wireless printer tomorrow.)
  • worked on paper weaving to use for letters to boys

Here’s my to do list for the week. Ridiculous. I know the list won’t get completed, but I still keep adding to it. Maybe a few lines will be drawn through items by the end of the week.
