Not Fast

weaving ML to MM

Usually when I’m weaving slowly it’s because there’s a problem at the loom – twisted threads, broken threads, treadles jumping out of their tie up, whatever. Or because I have other obligations – fund raisers, visits with friends & family, getting groceries, etc.

This time it’s because I have a head cold. I’m taking all sorts of stuff – Umcka, elderberry, vitamin C, zinc, Get Well herbal tea, aspirin, echinacea, neti pot. Slathering my neck with Mentholatum at night. I’m confident that I feel better than I would if I wasn’t doing all that stuff. Still, I’m mostly just tired. Wrung out. Lying down a few times a day but not able to sleep when I do.

So I’m spending less time at the loom and throwing the shuttle more slowly than usual when I’m there. Still, I am making progress on MM’s wrap. I’m about 2/3 of the way through it. Maybe I’ll finish today. Maybe not until tomorrow. Either way, the end is in sight.

    Not so fast. I’ve moved through sore throat to really tired to little voice to now—I’ve become a mouth breather my nose is so stuffy, and my upper lip is raw from all the nose blowing.

    Still, I’m sure all my healing activity is helping.

    Yuck Peg – sorry you’re “under the weather”, especially on such a BEAUTIFUl Spring day. The snow drops are blooming today, the daffodils have popped up several inches and the hyacinths are almost ready to bloom.
    We’re back home now.. had a wonderful time.. and hope you had a wonderful time with AR.
    I do have a good recipe for non-cheesy vegan cheese (and rice macaroni) from Lynn if you ever want it.
    Take care & feel better soon.
