Fixed it!!

Remember that little problem I had, with links taking folks away from the blog?  After sleeping on it, I suddenly remembered that when I opened the little window into which I pasted the link, there was an option to "open in another window".  Simple as pie to fix! Why is it that often answers come to you when you AREN'T searching for them??

I spent most of the weekend online, trying to update this blog and move some things around on my website. I'm still trying to decide if the site is worth keeping.  I have precious little time these days, and maintaining both a blog, a website, and my Etsy shop is stretching me too thin, so I think they all suffer.  I'm still toying with the idea of selling either directly from this blog, or from my website, probably using Paypal, but for now it's just an idea floating around in my head, awaiting further thought.  I would love some feedback on all of this, so please leave some comments about this site, what I could do to make it better, and what your thoughts are on my website as well (

The other day I got to stay home on stand by for part of the day, so I put the time to good use and wove almost three yards on my baby wrap.  I really felt like I was on a roll!  It was hot and sticky but our house has an uncanny ability to remain fairly cool in the summer, despite the fact that it is freezing in the winter, which doesn't exactly follow the rules of physics, I'm sure.  I still had a fan blowing on my face, and the soundtrack from Call the Midwife on and I felt like I could have woven all day! There's something about the combination of orchestral music used for background, and early crooner and rock and roll songs that is fun to listen to - it helps make the time fly by.  I ended the day with 4 yards+ of woven rainbow goodness!

The plan for the holiday was to play in our community band for the local 4th of July parade in the morning, with an outdoor concert in a nearly town in the afternoon, but a tropical storm is coming up the coast, so things are up in the air.  It all depends on the timing, of course, but it could make for a very soggy Independence Day, unfortunately.  We'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.  I hope everyone out there has a wonderful holiday, filled with family, fun, and fireworks!!
