Good Good Friday

I woke up Good Friday morning to snow. Our family celebrates Easter at our house - no specific reason other than tradition. By the time I finished breakfast, the snow had turned into rain and it lasted all day. I loved it - rain here is so rare. I started a warp and was able to open the window in my studio and listen to the birds. They loved the rain too.


By evening, the storm had blown over and the sun was making a last minute appearance. I had already resigned myself to an indoor Easter egg hunt. My friend Jerry said to hide them in the refrigerator; they'd never to think to look for them there - funny boy. He just landed in Taipei, five more hours to go to Indonesia. Not so funny.

I don't know what possessed me to put on these colors. I think I'll have to plead under-the-influence of Easter. These colors are almost liturgical. I also have yellow and green yarns - either one would have been a better complement than the periwinkle.
I started weaving on it this morning while waiting for family to arrive. I've discovered a threading error which is pretty apparent in tabby, but the other three towels will be in rosepath, and I'm hoping it won't be so obvious. I can't do anything about the purple. These towels are, well, liturgical.

Family came, we had an absolutely terrific afternoon and now they are all at son Josh's house for the evening. It was all planned on Facebook. All our kids are on Facebook and half the time I log on is to just read the crazy dialogues they have. We have funny children. Tomorrow the gig is here.

I love the purple towels! Hope you have a great Easter!

Happy Easter, and yes, those are Holy Towels, but they are lovely! I don't know why, but I noticed my wardrobe has a heavy influence of various shades of purple. But I am far from liturgical!

Hurray for good weather! And I like the purples, too.

My relatives in CA love rain too! That's foreign to me since we get plenty of rain here (in NH)!

Count me in with the group who like the purple!! Maybe it will seem less liturgical to you after Easter is over.

I'm with everyone else, purple is good!

Valerie said...

I like the purples too. Now if you had used the yellow with the dark purple, that would have been EASTER!!

Happy Easter!

Purple and periwinkle -- perfect! I love it too.

Purple towels I'm sure I would have never thought to use purple in towels but love it. I wouldn't worry to much about the error. Once they are washed it may disappear and aren't weavers suppose to have a mistake in their weavings.
Great being with family for the holidays.
Happy Easter!

What an appropriate choice for the season! I love the sky the best, though.

I love the purples! It's great that you tried something different. Happy Easter!

Another vote for the purple over here. I really like the yellow accent, too.

It sounds like a lovely day -- I cannot *wait* for it to be warm to throw open our windows! Stupid Michigan spring...
