I had great hopes of getting a lot done during the practice exam: journals read, skein knitted up, etc. It did not really happen. I forgot that as a practice exam the three sections were shorter than normal. What is normally a 45 minute multiple... Read more

One of my faculty members, teaching a large group of 1st years (106 to be exact), is holding a practice exam today. Less time than a normal exam and fewer questions but it is to be run exactly like a final exam. What this means for me is th... Read more

Last Sunday DB and I were on a road trip to a garden. The main reason for me was the sculptures. Made of legos! Lots and lots of legos. A total of 12 (I t... Read more

On one loom I weave rugs. It is one of the best that I have found for this. Some rugs are of fabric and, last year and for the foreseeable future, other rugs will be of handspun wool. It is the same loom that is a photo on my spark page. The fab... Read more

Yesterday I spent the morning making sure all the looms were working properly. But I am almost foolishly proud of the back wall in the loom house. When we started working on Wednesday it looked like: ... Read more

By noon today everything should be set for Friday and Saturday. It is two long days of demonstrating weaving on looms that are approximately 200 years old. My favorite one has enough material threaded on it for at least 5 rugs. Last year I only ... Read more

Yesterday was not too bad. It was short since I had a back appointment and left work at 4pm. Today is a full day 8-5. Reconnecting with friends was great. I had only 156 new emails and managed to deal with 100 and keep up with most incoming... Read more
