Here is a pict of Liz's bright idea as a way to display our purses. Joe thought to add the trim which gives it a nice frame and stabilizes the works. This handy dandy unit gets the purses off the table and up to eye level. In the alleyway, there are hooks on the wall. I'm not quite sure way, but we are only too happy to make use of them. This has always been an alley leading to the entrance of a bar. The name and clientele have changed many times over the years, but it has been a bar for as long as I can remember. Maybe the bouncers from one of the bars put up the hooks so that he could hang the drunken rowdies on the wall as a deterrent for other drunks. Kind of like heads on pikes in the good ol' days of knights and castles. Makes for an interesting mental picture.
We had a pretty good weekend at my house. Canada day was spent relaxing and tipping back a few cold ones. Sunday was a wet one and most of the day was spent inside, or running errands on my part. The evening brought clearing and Kora and I dyed part of her warp. Monday, the official day off for Bill, we had beautiful weather and finished dyeing the rest of Kora's warp. I dyed a few skeins myself and made up a warp. The rest of the afternoon was about sitting and talking and sipping on Gin & Tonics. Oh, my yum.
I hope that everyone had a good holiday weekend.
