Okay! I was tagged, Last Meme of the Year!

I thought since I'd not been posting a lot on the weaving blog and not a lot of traffic happens on the knitting blog that I'd be spared but nooooooooo thanks Susan ! LOL...

This is the sixth pic in the sixth folder in my pictures

It was taken at the Florida Keys in a Corvette Car Show, Vettes in Paradise in November 2008. Mr. Deepend is an avid Corvette Enthusiast, we have own three cars over the course of 14 years, all were in car shows and all have won 1st place in some category or other. Mr. Deepend is as passionate about his cars as I am about my fiber, so I respect his hobby albeit it "expensive hobby" (sometimes I think why the man couldn't have just loved to race gas powered model cars). This is a 2005 Chevy Corvette fully converted to resemble a 1958 convertible, the proud owner of this car spent over $ 150k customizing the car and trust me no detail went unnoticed, he shipped the car to WA to have it done and then picked it up and drove it down to Florida. Yeah, what a little hobby eh? And you thought that loom was a big ticket item.


I wound up with the flu and a dual ear infection, yeah for me. In my antibiotic, over the counter induced coma. I finally finished the woven table runner that had been sitting on my loom since this fantastic post. I must say I'm embarrassed that it took so long. I usually finish weaving with such a quickness I feel I neglected this piece for too long. But here is the finished product and it already on display under the nativity on the hall table.

I guess I should have taken the pic after I set up the Nativity? LOL.

Here's a close up of the weave structure although I followed the tie up as per this graph I didn't follow the weaving as instructed, the edges were not neat enough to leave raw, but if I were to make fabric for pillows or a purse I would not have cared. I'm happy with the results.

Let the Season Begin!

I love Christmas, and nothing in my house herald's in the season unlike the smell of pine from the tree, the cinnamon scented pine cones and the installation of my Christmas Village. It takes me two days to complete and only one month to enjoy but it's always worth the work.
