Not so sweet

This cotton flake warp is starting to make me cranky.  Two broken threads in this rectangle alone!  After I took this photo, I finished Carmen's two colors, which turned out quite beautiful, and started Cathy's color, same rose as Pat's.  If Nikki doesn't bring her yarn to the Clinch Valley meeting today, I'm afraid I'm going to have to weave two rectangles in my yarn, and cut this sucker off!  I only have two looms, and I need to get on with the two challenges for Tuesday Weavers, the six mug rugs that are supposed to match a mug, and the two scarves, using embroidery thread.  I have 5 months to finish them, but I know how summer and fall fly by in my job!  Everything is ripe and ready to go NOW!!!   Blueberries wait for no woman!
  Blueberries will be coming to the back door this week, and I've been promised a flood of wild blackberries starting on Wednesday!  No rest for the wicked!
  And speaking of no rest, Bella is waiting to go for her two mile walk.  After the Clinch Valley meeting today, with Carl Bretz teaching tapestry, Mom and I are off to the UT gardens and Bloomsday.  Photos and post to follow!  Have a fabulous Saturday!

Why six mug rugs???? Was I not hearing clearly, AGAIN??? I thought it was one mug...one mug rug. I really am going to have to get my hearing checked!!!! I'll let you know how my sampling goes with the afghan project. I'm threading today.

Only one mug rug for the challenge, but while you are putting on a warp.............

Right! An entire warp for one mug rug would be silly! But I could have sworn... At least LouAnn can breathe now!
