This morning I took the dogs for the first walk this year and the first walk in over two months. I haven't quite completed two weeks on Synthroid and already I feel like I'm back in my own skin. The dogs and I were thrilled even though it was pretty chilly.
How cold was it? That's ice on the mud puddle and that's a good thing. As long as we walk while it's below freezing, we're not walking in mud - we're walking on frozen mud. I took a couple more color reference shots.
I got to thinking that Buster is a pretty good color reference shot.
I love the colors in the Juniper tree - the blue, greens and gray.
I took the Week 12 shot after we finished our walk. The sun was still a little low but I forgot to come back and take another shot. As you can see, we are having an Indian summer, or something.
I'm so excited. I finally feel like tackling a project that doesn't involve sitting on the sofa and that project is a rag rug. I bought 30 pounds of fabric last summer, washed and ironed it and then nothing. You have no idea how big this day has been for me.
When I went to Mill-End Fabrics I asked them to show me their cheapest cottons - these were a dollar a yard. The colors are obnoxious together and I'm so curious to see if it matters when they are woven together. I just bought lights and darks.
This is my first strip, which I weighed at 2.5 ounces. I figure I have at least another 25 of these to sew together. I'm planning to load them right onto the shuttles that are piled on the table. After Laura's mother passed away, she gave me her Mary Black weaving book and all her rag rug shuttles. Jean, I hope I make you proud.
Holed up but not complaining
