The wind is whipping around

Hi all!

This is just a quick post about a funny NY moment...

I work on Water Street, two blocks north of the S.I. Ferry, and it is one of the windiest streets in NY. So picture this, I am waiting at the light leaning back against the wind, which is pushing so hard if it were to suddenly stop blowing I would be laying down on my back in the street. I see out of the corner of my a figure rush forward and hear an apologetic "oh excuse me..the wind!!!" This little lady was losing the battle with the Wind! I hold out my arm and yell over the wind...hurry catch on, catch on! She hooks into my left arm and this tall young guy hooks into my right arm...we run across the street into the shelter of the buildings, unhook arms and call good night to each other. All I can say is only in NY!

I love NY!

Hugs!

Off the hook...



Nah!!! Off the loom Babeeeee!


Here is my first piece! yippeee! It is way too long to use as a scarf so it will be used as a table runner. We have to name our piece for the class show at Habu. I am naming mine Teacher's Pet...cause I am such a brown-noser!

Speaking of brown-nosing..here is my special little helper...

Yep...Lola is great with fringes! She is totally fascinated. I am looking forward to starting my next piece. I love the way the colors mix with each other. A simple twist changes the look of the yarn...Love it! I can not wait to see what my classmates have made...The show isn't until Dec. I have time to finish the fringe. I am braiding and knotting it at different lengths. That should look pretty funky.

Here is a picture of my son the Chef and my daughter the rebellious one..aren't they adorable!

Have a great day!

Hugs!

Last Rose

All,

The last rose in my garden opened up. It is so pretty. My last weaving class is Wednesday!! That went by so fast...What will I do on Wednesday. Well my project comes off the loom last class. Our class show is in December. It be great fun to see everyone's finished project. I love seeing the differences between the different projects. The instructor, Linda, was really excellent! She has so much knowledge.

Today I will be sorting out Christmas pressies...I need to organize myself. So this post will be short... I did find some funky fabric to make my sister-in-law some pillows. There aren't many good fabric stores where I live. Blah. I have to go into the city to get anything nice.


I am going to leave you with a picture of some trees in the back.

Enjoy your week!
