it is spring and i am back in school

Well, that was a nice little break. Not much of a break, but whatevs. So, Eric's tierod fell off of his car yesterday while we were stopped at a light. That was nice. Got towed. Spent four hours (time that was supposed to be spent moving) at his parents' house while he, his dad and his uncle tried to get a bolt off so they could fix it. Grrr. Oh well, we got free pizza out of the deal! And it was pretty nice to just chill with Dawnine, even though every time I looked at the clock I cringed at time lost.

Anyway, I had my car looked at yesterday because it sways when I go 40-70mph. Yeah, probably not a good thing. Well, it isn't. The thing that connects my car's frame to the suspension is going bad. Hmmmm... I wonder what happens when that is bad? Don't wanna know. So, I have to get that fixed. I think I'll go to Eric's uncle, because he was just laid off and needs the work. Plus, he won't mark the part up. The car place that I went to was excellent, though. They were nice, didn't talk to me like I was stupid (most places do, because I'm a girl) and didn't tell me it was going to fall off if they didn't fix it on spot. So basically, way better than Belle Tire.

I did a crazy discharge shibori sample yesterday. Well, I bound it over the weekend and then discharged it yesterday. Check it out! It was originally that dark purple then bleached out to green! Weird.



Also, I'm weaving again! Hooray! Remember that warp that I painted a couple weeks ago? Well, it looks so nice on the loom. A little less variation than I would like, but that's why I made a sample. I'm having fun just playing around. I did a bit more after I took these photos and then my camera died. So, I didn't get the last part. It's pretty cool though! I'll show you tomorrow :) If only I could spend all of my days weaving the hours away. With a gentle breeze blowing through the open window...








Well, I have homework to do, then I'm going to move some stuff.

Thanks Carrie! I really like that shibori technique :)

Shelby said...

Wow! I would love to learn how to weave. I'm loving those shots.

Brittany Noel said...

Hi Shelby! Weaving is easy, at least the basics are. It's the setup and getting the loom and learning that are the hard parts. Nice to see you here :)

Nora said...

Aaaaah, I've finally found you! [And will promptly add you to my bloglines!] :)

The weaving looks great.
I hope you get you car fixed--that suspension problem sounds positively frightening to me! I generally find motor vehicles to be a mystery.

Brittany Noel said...

Thanks :) Yeah, the car is a bit of a problem... Hopefully next week. Until then, I'll just be nervous all the time!
