Pablo is in love with the kitten in the dishwasher. I will continue to try to get the audio – he is hilarious but stops meowing and warbling as soon as he notices me watching. The cardboard is taped under the dishwasher and cabinets because there are holes that kittens can see and fit into under there.

I haven’t been doing anything exciting in my studio – still measuring warp and today I ironed lots of little scraps of fabric in preparation to play with some cloth weaving a la Jude Hill.

Measuring and winding warp for the long-term double weave rag rug project. It was going well until the boys woke up. I’m going to try to do a little every day (when they are napping) and I might at least get the warp ready to put on the loom by the end of the year. I may have to wait until these guys are old and mellow before I can warp the loom though!

Dried butterbeans saved for next year’s garden. Butterbeans and hot and banana peppers were the only things that did well this past year so I’m going to double down on them next year.
