The demands of the beauty shot to post on my blog and Ravelry had me digging out the iron from its place of neglect on a shelf in my workshop. Above and below are the attempts. I took 16 photos, by the way, and because of the close quarters of my workspace there was often something unbeautiful in my shot--like an electrical plug or pen.

But they are done, and I have something to show for all this time. Fringing towels is pretty low-energy work, easily done while watching TV or just relaxing. Since being sick, I'm way behind in my weaving plans. Lately, I come home from work and nap, rather than work on warping.

My garden is still producing tomatoes! I was surprised to finding plants outside with tomatoes turning red. Along with those I brought inside, I have about 2 dozen tomatoes to cook with today. I even have a few peppers that were hidden enough by foliage not to be ruined by the frost.
Gardening is an investment, I'm discovering. I start with some seed or a nursery plant, do the best I can and here it comes producing dividends even well after a killing frost. I guess the trick is to make a good investment in hardy stock, good soil and a nice sunny place to grow. It's October and I'm still making homemade sauce, leaving what I've stored up in the freezer untouched!
I hope everyone has a nice week, stays healthy, and thanks for visiting my blog. I do plan to have a giveaway ready once I've really kicked this cold thing. Keep on crafting and see you next week!
