As I write this, I am eagerly awaiting the promised cooler weather. Just look at those temperatures for the coming week. It has been so long since I have felt anything below 80 in the morning—well, gee, I just may have to kick up my heels! That is one reason we have a brand, spanking new record for heat this year. Our nighttime temperatures are just way too high.
In other news: The biennial Fort Worth Weavers Guild show and sale is coming up. I am not actually taking anything to sell as it is just to much trouble to figure out how to display in that setting. I do have a couple of pieces hanging on the wall for the show, though. The show reception and sale coincides with Fall Gallery Night, so there is always a good crowd.
Weaving right along on the piece on the loom. At this point, there are about nine inches left of the design to weave. This is when I start really putting in the time to get finished—headin’ for the barn, you know. However, since I am weaving with colors that are not part of my usual palette, I’ve also got some doubts. Sometimes I take something off the loom and love it immediately. Other times I am totally ambivalent, and other time I totally dislike it. Some of those dislike times end up getting a more favorable review from me later. Those that don’t never see the light of day!
