I've been working steadily and have things to show for it. First, the hemp towels are woven, finished and ready to go to good homes. I will keep one of them but that leaves six. Here they are:
Raspberry season is on here. That means that every other day I need to pick raspberries and then make jam. Yesterday I picked for several hours and made several batches. The temperature got to 101 (Farenheit) which meant it wasn't pure joy picking them. The humidity was just 5% and it was windy, to boot, which helped me a little bit but made the work of firefighters who are battling wild fires south and a little west of here very difficult.
There is something very satisfying about looking at jars of richly colored jam lined up on the table:
I hope to finish threading the towels tomorrow and also go shopping for the tiny threads I am going to weave into grille cloth for a 1930 radio for a man who restores them. The threads are tiny, black in the warp direction, and sett quite closely. Finding the coppery-looking threads that run in the weft direction may be challenging, but what's life without challenges?
(Boring, I suspect.)
