Still not weaving....

I am still not weaving.  I am going to work on fixing my cartoon today and maybe get to warping a loom. I did fix my washing machine and it is running great.  Now, I am a little hesitant to wash my horse laundry in it, but on the other hand, I was doing that for a few years.  We have had the washer for five years and it just now clogged up, not bad for all the farm laundry I do.

In the meantime, we got a puppy.  So, she is keeping me a bit busy.  It is the last week of school, so there have been brownies to bake, exams to monitor, and thank you notes to write.  Here is a photo of our new puppy and her foster mom Elsie.   She is yet unnamed, and is a Spinone Italiano, a very sweet and cute little girl.

I am also gathering supplies.  I have been accepted into Helena Hernmarck's workshop at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis.  I am very excited about going.  I ordered my warp today, and will get my loom ready next week.  I bought all my yarn last week.   The workshop isn't until the end of July, but summer camps, and other activities mean little time to do things without children.  Better to get it done early, rather than panicking at the end.  Now, while my little pup is sleeping, I am going to work on my cartoon.
