14 yards long, 15 napkins, a week’s worth of hemming and the napkins are done! Reminder to me…. Don’t expect to get a lot of weaving done when its gardening season! I’ve been working on these since April. Dumb idea. I am so happy with the results, but my oh my was it tough to get down to the loom when trying to garden and put up food for the next season.
I’m getting better at my hemming. They look less like a snake and more like a hand done project.
After looking up from my dreamland and discovering that Labor Day weekend is just a week away, I kind of freaked. For fun, I want to set up a booth at our local holiday fair this year. It will be to have a weaving presence. If I don’t get my butt in gear I’ll not have anything to display!! I want to sell some Christmas table runners, placemats and kitchen towels. But before I can loom them up I have a couple other orders to fill. Deep breathing. Whodah thunk that post retirement would be busier than pre? If you think a couple can homestead and get everything done….. you are delusional. I woke up this morning, thinking that I’d get in the garden and was met with a sick turkey. Now that they have been de-wormed, its now 7:30 pm and I’m hemming napkins. We are on goat baby watch, we have been canning and dehydrating, the wife is working a full time job, and I’m losing my mind. All in a week’s schedule. Of course….in the end, who owns this problem?
