Ben and I are Separating...
Just for the next 10 days. I'm going up to the northern end of the country today to help a weaver move her looms out of her living room and into her new weaving "shed". And she has gazillion looms! We'll be painting the walls, dismantling and rebuilding looms, and meanwhile I'm stealing any good ideas or color schemes I can find.
Anyhoo, Ben will be holding down the fort all on his lonesome, so please come and visit and drop a friendly "Howdy" to keep him company.
This wonderful ensemble is made with the old carpet from Nelson Airport's terminal building. The story goes that the terminal building was first built, carpet of this design was installed; years (decades?) later, when they refurbished the terminal building, they custom-ordered carpet of the exact same design!! Thankfully, after the recent refurbishments this century, we have more muted colors and a less, shall we say, noticeable design.
