This is the first few inches of the last scarf on this warp. It is black bamboo and rayon colors. I am loving it! (I need to load a bigger bobbin next time, this one tends to wrap yarn around the rod.)
This week I have been feeling a bit under the weather. Nasty cough, and sore throat, but no fever. (I wonder if I inhaled too much dust last Tuesday when we were sorting stuff in the annex at Tuesday Weavers? ) That means that I have not run with my dog, Scout, for 2 days. I let her run around the yard yesterday morning but it is not quite the same as a good 2 mile run. She has therefore, been a little more antsy than her usual antsy self.
This morning when I went out to feed, I was saw several piles of white feathers in her pen! I looked all over the pen, and did not see a dead chicken. I looked in the neighboring goat pen, no dead chicken, I looked in chicken yard, no dead chicken. Finally, I looked in the hen house, and sure enough, there was
Roo2, he was on the roost looking slightly bedraggled and definitely partially de-plumed, but he was alive and I even saw him eating later too! I can't catch him during the day, so it is a watch and see situation. If Roo1 will leave him alone, he will recover and once his feathers grow back, he will be able to fly over the fence once again to his own peaceful kingdom with the goats. Now, I wonder if he will remember to not wander into the dog pen?
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
