Everything is ready to go for the Crackle Exchange. I’ve printed out 10 copies of the paperwork, put them in plastic sheet protectors, along with the finished samples. Everything is in the addressed envelope, ready to go to the post office. That last is the part I really don’t like! There are always lines.
Meanwhile, picking up the crackle samples to put in the sheet protectors revealed another layer of crackle samples. These are the samples of experiments that I wove for myself on that last crackle warp. Now I have to get to that paperwork and get that stuff organized so that when I am ready, I can start planning my next crackle piece. I’m thinking perhaps of a more major art piece which could masquerade as a shawl?
Meanwhile, I have four (maybe five) more dishtowels to weave off the current warp, and while I am doing that I have to get ideas for the handspun finalized. I would love to get that done before the children arrive for Christmas. Still, it might be fun for them to see a piece in progress.
CHILD-PROOFING A LOOM?
But there is a 17-month old grandson (a very active grandson, I might add) who I am going to have to factor into the equation……. I can think of no way to childproof a loom. But I am certainly open to ideas here.
