I pulled the last warp off the loom today. I knew I was pushing an almost impossible deadline since I started winding the warp last Friday. It was close but I did get them hemmed and done. I won't do that again - ever. These are my Country Gardens colorway.
priated the dining room for my staging area. I bought a cash box yesterday and went to the Bonanza Casino on my way home to get change. We're going to use the Square so I have no idea how much change we'll need. This is my first major craft fair and the first time to collect tax.
I love the whole idea of self suffi-
ciency. While I'm weaving and weighing different craft fair venues, Ian is up in the Sierras cutting firewood. We have a furnace, but we elect to heat entirely by firewood. Our woodstove and the open construction of our two-story house are ideal for this. I don't know how Ian figured it out, but if you know him, you won't be surprised. There's a naturally occurring black-oak stand within the NFS permitted area and that's what he's cutting from here.
