I was a bit startled to realize when I used white cotton yarn to spread the warp it looked some what like human eyes staring back at me. The fact that I am weaving a pirate sash to be worn by a dear friend who does reenactment as a pirate captain made me think of Cap'n Jack Sparrow and the eyes he had painted on his face in one of the Disney pirate movies. The whole thing is kind of weird don't you think?
Update on our tomato garden, with all the humidity, heat and sunshine around here the tomatoes are leaping skyward. Mind you, the tomato cages are almost 4 feet tall and the plants are already 2 feet tall, that my dear friends is very fast growth for this time of year. We have a ton of little green tomatoes on every plant which I have to tell you makes me a happy lady. Canning season is fast approaching, ketchup, salsa, tomato paste, tomato sauce, pizza sauce, spagetti sauce, chili sauce... pretty sure I am forgetting some type of sauce.
My beloved SamWise Gamgee trying to stay as cool as possible on this hellish hot day. Air conditioning and cool tile in the basement make for one happy boy. We are supposed to top out at 100 degrees today. Heat waves, I detest them and as you can see so does Sammy boy.
Hope everyone is staying cool. Happy Weaving!
