This is a scarf my friend Margaret wove out of some fiber that I dyed. She showed it to me when I was at the Knowltons for the Wool Trek. I think it is just beautiful!
I have dyed 6 pots of wool today so I am taking a break. I think I deserve it. I just heard that a dear friend Claire over in the UK had a stroke last week. Yikes that was a shock. She appears to recovering movement on her right side but the speech recovery is slow. Say a prayer or light a candle for her. She is such a wonderful artist that I am hoping she is back in the swing of things soon.
Isn't it strange how we can complain about not having enough time or these little issues and problems we all have. They all seem so big until we hear of something like this. It puts it all into perspective once more. Since I have heard about Claire its like my world has stopped. I have a zillion things to do but I find myself stopped in silence for the sadness of this event and my powerlessness to help at all.
Sarah is off at a job interview, so I hope she comes home with a job. I spent last evening weighing all the Shetland Roving I have to sell and some of the other fibers I have dyed. It takes a long time to do. I keep thinking I need to buy a digital scale to do this. The triple balance beam scale I use really takes a long time. I guess I just don't want to spend the money on it. Maybe if I start looking a bargain will present itself. I know you never know until you look.
