Waves and Weaves

My sons and a co-worker came for a day of boating and relaxation. We laughed through Matthew and Caleb's antics while skiing and enjoyed their company as always! When they got too hot they jumped in for a dip to cool off. The water was 88 degrees so it was a pleasure to hit the waves! We went to our usual destination, Corky Bells, for lunch then back to the lake for another bout of skiing. It was a perfect day. (We doused ourselves with sunblock this time and no one looked like a lobster when we were done!)
I did a bit of weaving when they left this evening. The Lion brand ribbon yarn (copper penny dye lot) works up beautifully-it glows with colorful glory! I can't wait to wear this shawl!

For now, the little columns sit here to welcome guests and owners alike!

Love the columns!

Wow, that is a powerful punch of color - what are you going to do with it? Will we get to see the finished product?

So glad you had a fun day with the guys; the new weaving project is pretty; I love how the columns frame your front door!

That first picture somehow brought a shark fin to mind for me! Yipes!

Cool to see what weaving with ribbon yarn looks like!!

The new columns look great. (And that's a beautiful door, BTW.)

That looks like a HUGE lake. I read your post about Buford State Park, and I think you must live close to a friend of mine who lives in Lilburn, Ga.
Love your coin purses. Very nice.
Thanks for stopping by Crazy as a Loom, can I interest you in some fabric?
Kidding!

The ribbon shawl is beautiful.

Your colums sure do look nice especially with the plants on top.

Water looks cool and inviting. Glad to see everyone's having a good time.
