Update on my weaving. This is picture 2, taken after 2 more hours of weaving. So far I’ve done 4 hours. It’s about 5″ long.
Two large bags, making a rainbow of felt, to take with me, along with an inspiration picture. I panic if I have no handwork, so I am prepared for a car ride. Along with a suitcase of embroidery floss, and my sewing scissors, and a shoebox of crayons to do texture rubbings in the woods. And some paint to show up the wax resist of the rubbings. And some paper. I might need some clothes…
This was my winner in the Celtic Festival Limerick Challenge. It’s one of my least favorites, but there’s no accounting for taste.
In Saline I sat writing a Limerick,
Neither potions, a wand, or my broomstick,
Could find me a word that appeared less absurd,
So I finally ended with Fiddlestick.
