What haven't I been doing! After I finished the second scarf (using a light peach colored silk weft which made it look very different from the first one) and the piece that will become a little evening bag, I dived into getting ready for a class that starts here, in my studio, on Friday morning.
I needed to make and install the warp the class will use and then wove a couple of inches in plain weave so I could double check that all was as it ought to be. Check.
I had cleaning to do, too. I have had my head down working and working and needed to tidy up. I am not entirely finished with that but have a little time left. I had to plan lunches that would be worth looking forward to and be easy to pre-prepare so that getting them on the table--Iam a one woman band, here, doing all of it--wouldn't be difficult. The ladies who are coming (three sisters, a first) have no food allergies or strong prejudices that I have to work around which has made it easier. I still need to make a grocery run for the last things and that will happen Thursday.
Today is Tuesday and tomorrow the vet comes to give vaccinations--don't tell Bob and Lola!--and I need to mow the lawns and still get cleaned up to go to the first opera of the season. It is La Boheme so it will be a heady night of melody; Salt Lake's Utah Symphony and Opera is a great organization and never fails to please me. I go expecting to love what I hear and see, open to new experiences and new music. This opera doesn't fall into the "new" category and is the one I think of first (or second) to recommend to friends who have never been to an opera.
On Thursday besides a grocery run I have my exercise time (two hours usually) and then go directly to my Web Design class. this will be the next to last meeting of that class so I am hoping that my web site, newly revised, will be up and running soon. I will let you know!
If the participants are willing, I will post a photo of them here once class has begun. This is one of my Four for Four workshops: a maximum of four people for four days. This time there are only three so they will have a little extra time weaving, each of them.
It is still pretty early but as my English friends might say, I am well and truly knackered and will head for bed soon.
So that is what I have been doing!
