I took photos of my loom and warping board to my physical therapist Kris so he could see what I'm asking him to clear me to do. He said okay - but activity just to tolerance. I decided that ten 20" wide towels aren't a good starting point so I removed that warp and wound this scarf warp instead. It took about a half hour and I did it in two separate sittings. I'm taking baby steps and it seemed to go okay.
Ian and I made a Costco run after physical therapy. He had been looking at cameras on Consumer Reports to replace my aging Panasonic PowerShot. His recommendation was another Nikon Cool Pix. The price was right so this picture is from my new S9500. The shutter speed is, well, speedy.
It also has some special effects that I can apply right from the camera to look like the smart phone camera apps. This is one is called Toy Box Effect.
This special effect is called Painting. It's looks like a quick pass through Photoshop, which might be okay since nothing about Photoshop is ever quick.
I keep a quilt on Lilith when she's not in use so she won't get bleached out with the sun streaming through the window.
Now that Maddie is in the studio with me, this is her place - a fort!
This morning I started the next step and sleyed some of the warp. I do it by the clock so when 20 minutes was done, so was I. I thought I'd get back to it this afternoon but decided to wait a day. I'm having problems with muscle spasms on the left side of my neck and don't want to make them worse.
I finished this set for great-granddaughter Olivia in Massachusetts and want to get them in the mail next week.
This is what's holding me up. I want to also make her a Christmas hat but wasn't able to get to Jimmy Beans until Monday, after physical therapy - different day from the camera. I'm using the orange and purple pattern. I know I'm my own worse critic but so far it's just not floating my boat. I'm sticking with it, hoping just once, it will be even cuter than the picture.
