It's nearly Christmas....where has the time gone?
I have been weaving (of course!). After a series of cotton sock top loopers and some using strips of worsted fabric from Pendleton I wove grill cloth for old jukeboxes. This cloth is for the 1080c:
The warp is cotton and the weft, a very narrow, flat silver ribbon. The metallic is about 1/16" (~2 mm.) wide. I need to keep it flat and weave it in flat which takes careful handling.
I am sill--for well over a year now--spending Wednesday afternoons at Emeritus, a skilled nursing facility downtown in Salt Lake City. I miss a day only when ill or teaching. I mostly listen to the residents, try to discover something that will interest each one of them that I can find out about or bring in. Sometimes it is a piece of music, or a book to read to those whose eyes don't permit reading anymore. Mostly I am just there for them. Anyone who has ever volunteered for a worthwhile cause knows how rewarding such work can be.
I have plenty of work o to, which I consider a blessing. May all of you be blessed now and in the coming year.
See, I don't think the world is ending tonight!
