One of the planned chores I had set for myself this past week was to repair this hole in my favorite afghan.
The loom still isn't put together, but I now have a table for my fiber studio.
The only photo I have with a quilt in it this week is this one:
We're having some nice weather, with temperatures in the 50-60ºF range (in January!), so on Saturday, we took the pups to the dog park.
On Sunday, we finally had some real snow here in Bend. I think it was a little over an inch.
It has been a rough two weeks. My "flu" turned out to be pneumonia, and then, before I was recovered, I caught a cold from DH. Each day is a little better, though, and I'm finally able to sleep at night, propped up on pillows. I've made some progress on the Nurmilintu Shawl, though.

Wow! What a week! I had hoped to get the loom put together, but it was too busy. I did get all the heddles loaded onto the rods in the shafts. Here it is with just two shafts loaded, and there are four, but I did finish that part. There are enough heddles (those things that look like wires hanging down in the middle) to weave something with more than 400 warp threads.…Continue
Well, the loom didn't get put together. This week got away from me, and the light in there isn't too good yet, so from late afternoon on, it's hard to work in the alcove where the loom is.
However, Billy's hat to go with his cardigan is…Continue

Monday was busy. If you read last week's blog post, you'll remember we had a phone call from the driver of the van that held all of our household goods except for the 700 lbs. that had been left behind because they didn't fit on the van. He said he had been caught as being overweight in Brigham City (the van, not the driver) at the weigh station and had to wait for…Continue

Our guest bed and mattress arrived at Jim’s on Monday. The nice gentleman from FedEx brought the bed up to the house and put the mattress into the back of the car. When Jim came home from his trip, we put the bed into the pickup, drove to the house and unloaded both boxes. …
We closed on our house on Friday.
