Cloth


Here is a little bit of weaving. The bag was made by fulling my woven wool cloth in the washer and sewing. I like the lining. This bag will stay with my loom to hold dowel rods, a tape measure, etc. The needles are in there for scale.

A quick trip through the washer did wonders for this janky fabric.
This piece of gray linen is delicious. I can't keep my hands off of it. I plan to sew it into something sassy, I just don't know what right now. Maybe a knitting bag, I'm not sure. I might go to Joann's at look at patterns for accessories.


My car repairs were exactly $900. Ouch. The overwhelming lonely emptiness of raising 3 kids alone in the middle of nowhere with no friends or family is getting to me. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch. I can't find anybody to drive me to pick up my car at the mechanic's. How did my life get here? How did I manage to be so alone?
I'm trying. I'll keep plugging along. It has to get better. Even total assholes have friends. I'm sure my life will warm up again.

Since you have an Air Force hubby, I assume you live in Great Falls. If you lived in Bozeman area I'd be there in a heartbeat to take you to the mechanic.

Thanks, that's really sweet. I got myself into this mess by being a hermit after David left. All of his friends have moved to different bases. I seriously need to pick my butt up and rejoin the world.

So sorry you're feeling lonely. I wish I could help with your car. Sending a "hug" from a cyber-friend.

Hi! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Nah, i don;t worry about the cats pooping in my garden. If they can get past my giant Bengal/Manx, then they can do anything they want. LOL Plus the catnip and marigold garden usually keeps critters out of my herb garden. I agree is it very invasive, but I am hoping planting it in tubs into the ground will help.
