A miserable day, - low, threatening clouds, a chilly wind,
and I leaf through weaving magazines,
looking for inspiration that will move me to use up
great quantities of my stash......
I study a page or two in an old Handwoven,
that features stripes - narrow stripes, wide stripes, rainbow stripes and a little Fibonacci.
I poke around in the wicker basket that contains all my bits of leftover cones
and mentally plan a little warp,
- or maybe a longer one if I hit on something that really appeals to me.....
I examine this leftover cotton (and wool),
thinking it will dissuade me from ordering some
Jaguar silk and wool
that inspires me to make a lovely striped shawl.
What shall I do, - what shall I do?
Probably give in to my longing,
- I have reached the age where I figure I deserve what I desire!!!!
In my mind's eye I see a beautiful, brushed square
with maybe a stripe or two of mohair every few inches
to lend it an especially cosy look
- and the image of my empty Glimakra springs to same mind,
making a lovely picture of what might fill my hours and days
for the next week or two.....
I am off to Jane Stafford's internet page,
to see what she has to offer....
that should take care of the rest of the morning!!!
