First, a silly lemming:
Your Lightsaber is Blue
Blue is often associated with depth and stability.
It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom,
confidence, and truth.
What Colored Lightsaber Would You Have?

And no, I'm not a Star Wars geek, why do you ask? My late DH, HE was a SW Geek of the first order, but me....nah. Just 'cause I have all the DVD's, have already planned my sick day for 5/19/05, have a bunch of the old specials....nah. I'm no geek! *g*
The bathroom wall is as done as it can be for now. It needs the "water", but I want to do all 4 walls at the same time so they are similar. The other 3 walls will be easier - they aren't as big. The question: Is this the ocean or is it an aquariam? If ocean, then we need jellyfish and seahorses and maybe a wrecked frigate. (Although I can't think of where it would go - there will be a treasure chest by the toilet, where the stupid builders had to cut out the sheetrock because they forgot to turn on the water to the bathtub....they didn't fix the wall, so my Dad did, but because he didn't have the texture it looks kinda icky. SOooooooooooo, we need to hides it with paint, we do) Maybe we need a turtle, too.....and a starfish? A clam? Guess I need to get the kids' input here. *snerk*
Am set up to demo Saturday at the local Public Library. Himself was supposed to go with me and weave, but now he wants to go to Grandma's house instead. That's ok....I couldn't figure out how to keep him occupied from 10-4. And do my demo. And talk to people. And not spend a fortune on snack food junk. However, this leaves me without a weaver.....anyone out there wanna fake it? I'll provide a warped table loom, weft yarn, shuttle, and quick and dirty instructions. You'll get to take home the scarf/small shawl. Weaving is easy to demo - you just explain what you're doing (see, the long threads are the WARP, these levers lift every other thread so I can pass the WEFT thru, and then you use the BEATER to, well, beat it, and there ya go.) and tell people all the wonderful things that are woven (blankets, blue jeans, some shirt fabrics, curtains, etc. Most folks have NO clue, so you'll do fine)
I'm only 1/2 joking here, I'd love the companionship. The library provides lunch (they say), and most people are more fascinated by the spinning wheel in my experience. Most questions are general, and if you have any clue at all you can answer them. A knitter or 2 would be good, too..........HINT HINT HINT.
They have my space indoors, and they provide chairs. I'm not planning on wearing garb, just 'danes (street clothes), so.........think about it.
If you've ever wanted to try weaving, here's a good time. I'm in N. Texas, SE of Dallas. I'm thinking I might want to drag a loom along, anyway - so if you just want to drop by for a bit, you can try weaving. (Maybe not....both table looms are HEAVY. My wheel is bulky.....but I can set up from 8 - 9:40, so I'll have plenty of time. I might be persuaded to drag along an extra wheel, too.....if you've ever wanted to try spinning.
