The table runner. My first real weaving project. It's just shy of 9 feet long for a 10 foot long table (I think). Anyway, it was fun and exasperating....the warp yarn was very fuzzy and shed a lot! I also had several warp threads break. I now understand this is from having the tension uneven. I have a book that I received from Kati Reeder Meek on making a trapeze-like device to beam a warp that is absolutely dead even in tension. Thank you so much Kati!! I also have her book on Lithuanian Weaving which is really cool because I grew up in the Chicago area with many Lithuanian friends (Labas!), including one who grew up to be a priest in the Lithuanian-Catholic Church and is a teacher at the University in Lithuania (one of the oldest universities in Europe (hi Arvyd- wanna cookie??). Ironically, Kati needed a translator when she was writing the book. Had I known her then I could have easily found her one! But, I know her now (well, we haven't actually met yet...but we will at Convergence in June) and boy am I glad!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
