Yes, two in one day

The man who designed and commissioned me to weave his tartan came by today and declared himself delighted with the cloth.  Just as I thought, cloth beats paper!

I have some nasty bug, a lower respiratory thing so it is an early bedtime for me tonight.   I warned my customer as I met him at the door and said I was going to keep my distance; he said not to worry, everyone at his house had it last week.  Hmmm.

I had woven enough to cut off and wash a hemstitched piece for him to take.  I had washed and pressed it but it was still a little bit damp, but that means no extra trip from Pleasant Grove to pick it up.

I am going to weave about half an inch on the sample piece I am keeping for my records before I hemstitch it so I can take if from the loom and wash and press it.  

Next stop, dreamland, and that sounds good!

Glad he liked the sample. Now, go take care of yourself! That bronchial bug going around is nasty. You want to conquer it quickly.
