Yard Sale find! Notice that big cone of black wool, I paid $5.00 for it!
Gail, I love using a flower frog to hold your card. I have a couple of them that I use for pictures, wish I had more of them. I went to a yard sale yesterday because they advertised "designer yarns." I saw some of the yarns in the hand of a women ahead of me so I was worried that I was too late, however I did get some sock yarn, 2 skeins of silk, a cone of some type of unknown fiber and a really large cone of wool. I think the wool will look good with the rug I am planning with the red and black wool I already have in my stash. I thought I wouldn't have enough black but this cone will make a big difference, I think I will use it for the weft. I am planning to get a heavy rug loom in September, I am looking forward to making some rag rugs with all the fabric I have in my sewing room. On the loom now, I am continuing to thread my heddles, 1-3-1-4-2-3-2-4, 38 times for my napkins, hope they are not too heavy,they may be wash cloths. Almost done, hope to be weaving this weekend.
