The chimney is down to the ceiling. We no longer have a hole in the roof and the stack of bricks has grown immensely. I had thought about a patio with them, but I think there is still more than I need. Hmmmm....
I did get marigolds planted in the vegetable garden to help ward off bugs. I like the splash of color. Now I'm just hoping the squirrels and birds will share some of the tomatoes and cukes with me.
The wedge weave still moves forward and we are coming into the home stretch. I spent a little time with it in the backyard this weekend. It's one of the beauties of a small pipe loom for tapestry weaving! I discovered something this week with the wedge weave. The loom is warped continuously, so I'd added some black foam between the front and back to block my vision of the warp in the back. Seeing everything became a mass of white and I couldn't tell which warp I was grabbing when. Anyway, the weaving is long enough now, that I don't necessarily need the foam and I was tired of it falling out - so I removed it. Then, I made the discovery. Light shines through the white spaces making them glow like a lamp shade. I have not figured out what to do about it yet, but there's something there. It was hard to photograph but maybe you can see the difference between the top half that's backlit and the bottom that's blocked by foam? Especially, the one white wedge in the middle that's partially blocked?I had washed a quilt and threw it on the line the same day. And loved some of the photographs from the backside with the light coming through. How often can one complement some thing's backside???The reason I washed the quilt is we had taken it would to Lake Robinson for lunch. We were greeted by a number of Canada Geese who obviously are not shy of humans! There were two sets of goslings though that were just precious to watch.
