Yesterday was a frustratingly sad day. After breakfast, we decided to look for some of John's weaving materials.
We had Christ Gustin of Homestead Weaving Studio in Nashville, Indiana (think Brown County) prepare warp for two scarves. John was going to put the warp on his loom and weave away.
Then John got sick, the warp was packed to go into the vast basement of our Tiffin Allegro Bus. Now, we cannot find the warp. What a huge, expensive bummer!
We started to empty the basement compartments, one at a time. As we were emptying the compartment, we inspected the bags of llama and alpaca fiber that I had stored there. Oh, oh, wool moths larvae! In all, I had to throw twelve huge bags of larvae, moths infested fiber into a dumpster. That sure reduced my stash!
We looked at the hats, handbags and scarves I had in storage bins. These were items that I was preparing to sell on the Internet. Every item in the tote that did not have an air-tight seal had damage. Thank goodness, some items designed for children were in a sealed bin.
We are still searching nooks and crannies for John's warp. Hopefully, it will be a successful, satisfactory Sunday.
We did come across much of John's mom's unfinished quilts. At least one top needs to be stitched and there are three or four groupings of quilt squares that need to be sewed together. Then, there is fabric! And more fabric. Can you say weight added to the bus? At least, we reduced considerable weight when the fiber went to the dumpster.
Our thanks to those who used our blog to enter into Amazon's store to make their purchases. No matter how small or large, every order helps.
I'm off to find that warp! Wish me luck.
