Thankfully the smoke has receded from Quimperland so Constance and I were able to spend a couple of hours at a friend’s loom this morning…
…and a couple of hours this afternoon visiting a relative who kindly invited me to dig in her scrap bag for fabrics to augment my hexagon stars…
…when we got home, Constance decided the twill piece could wait until tomorrow to be hemmed.
Thanks, Rose for the pretty shawl…we went into the smoke in the heat of midsummer and came out of it into a cool autumn!
So happy to read that conditions have improved in Quimperland. You and Constance must have felt uplifted to be able to go out and visit your friend and family member…and digging in fabrics is the most fun of all.
We were very glad to get out for two visits in one day – it seemed very indulgent, but we did enjoy it!
I agree with Mary Anne…so glad things are looking up in your region and that friends are available to you. Picking out fabric would surely have been a cherry on a chocolate cake. I assume you and Constance like chocolate cake?
We are both very fond of chocolate cake – especially Aunt Tattie’s recipe…and a cherry on top – what could be more completely perfect than that?
The shawl and weaving are so beautiful! It sounds like a happy fibre filled day.
It was a happy day – it was so nice to actually be able to see the distant mountains again as we drove from here to there!
That is indeed a beautiful shawl. We rejoice in the clearing of the smoke down here in The Magpie’s Nest too.
Thanks, we love that colour of yarn…and Hooray for rain and wind!
