I'm a weaver today

Today I finished threading the On the Road Again swap. Actually did some weaving on it! Amazing that I can remember how. After the 27 samples are woven, I have to fix one little teensy tiny misthreading - which won't show on the samples at all - but would show in the towels I'll weave afterward. medium_2006-07-15.jpgI am ahead of the curve on this one. The paperwork is due August 1 and the samples have to be cut up and taken to the meeting three weeks later. Plenty of time.... I'm weaving shadow weave and it's supposed to look like tire tracks in the desert. There is an occasional green weft thread and I'll sew a couple of white or light blue seed beads to represent gravel.
B and I went to the movies this afternoon. Pirates of the Carribean II. Great effects. Silly story. Wonderful costuming and detail. The credits go on and on. The digital artists number in the hundreds, I think. They even listed Laborers! That's the notariety I want: to have "laborer" in foot high letters over my name for the ten or so people who sit through the credits because their friends say there is a surprise at the end. But I guess if even your name is on screen, there's some pleasure in it. I mean, consider blogging - your name on the screen for no particular reason.
Watered the lawn this morning and picked one lonely tomato. We'll be having pesto tomorrow, I think. The basil is getting pretty high. Now it looks like rain.
Planning an all art / all day event on Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. J will be coming over and we're hiding upstairs while grandpa babysits.
