August 7, 2006
I finished weaving my sample shawl, this one is going to North Carolina to the Blue Ridge Hand Weaving Show. I have to get a doll to be able to display it. Even though I'm in Florida, North Carolina is calling my name, oh well 5 more years and we'll be there permanantly (Woohoo!!) Thank God, we'll be up there for vacation the last week of December (I can get my fix that way and keep dreamin'). I figure once I get the sample shawls back I can give them to my nieces for their American Dolls. I have to name this one, in order to send it... something catchy... I'll think about it unless someone can come up with something for me..
As for the 7' triloom its in various stages of unfinished wood and nails I got a blister from the hammer (I know go figure) the wood is harder than I thought and am having a heck of of time hammering in the nails, 252 per each side x3 (756 for those of you that are mathematically challenged as I am, can you believe I needed a calculator for that, very sad state of affairs in that department). I don't know if I'll finish it at this point I'm just disappointed, I'll see if I can do some more pounding this afternoon.
