A couple of times a year, I like to travel to Waco and visit Homestead Heritage. Sometimes I go for basket weaving with Martha, sometimes, just go to relax and get away, and I’ve taken all of their rigid heddle classes. I have plans for cheese making, blacksmithing, and pottery.
I could sit under this tree every day for the rest of my life. I sometimes wonder if my life was different if I wouldn’t join the community.
This trip, I went for the Weaving Extravaganza and I spent two days weaving a waffle weave towel set in natural cotton.
I loved it so much, I want to make a set with some of the other natural cotton colors. Maybe even one of each color. I was invited back when the ladies do their personal towels later in the year to do just that.
After less than 24 hours at home, I’m off for a camping trip with my husband and some friends in Wichita Falls. A crazy cold front came through and the low tonight is going to be 37. I’ve brought knitting.
Send firewood and booze.
Happy Friday y’all!
