Did you know?

A "Pandula" is a flower which blooms only in one's imagination.

Once again, I got over confident!

Silly me!  I thought if I could do one little band that I could move on to a MUCH LARGER PROJECT.  Silly me!  I also thought I could use unmercerized cotton, think rough finish, not SMOOTH.  Smooth is what warpface weave structure absolutely demands.  Especially from a newbie such as myself.

I spent the entire Sunday trying to warp up the big tapestry loom for warpface about 5 ft. long and 5 in. wide.  STUPID me!

I am so frustrated with the entire sticky mess that I got up this morning at 5:30 a.m. because I couldn't sleep for the aches and pains of the process that it caused my old lady body.  AND the fact that I was obsessing over it and even dreaming about it.  My ONE  great satisfaction (even though I detest waste) was cutting that Bi--- off of my loom.  I cannot tell you the frustration level. :o{  

It is now in the trash and I will be sticking to smaller projects for a while.  SILLY ME, I learn it ALL the hard way.  

Back to the drawing board.
