Despite the continuing and very dismal rain, we drove out to Pickens today to visit friend & fellow artist Ellen Kochansky in her brand new house near The Rensing Center. Her gem of a house is built with great respect for the natural environment, and contains many delightful features. One of these, dear to the heart of any fiber artist who ever used a store-bought pattern, is the guest room walls:
Bruce photographed her house quite extensively today, so I'll leave the serious stuff to him, but here's a snapshot of Ellen and Bruce reviewing some images on the laptop:
Between the raindrops, we took a brief tour of the Rensing Center. Here's the piano, and a most wonderful mirror frame:
And of course Scylla and Charybdis, after Charybdis was coaxed down from the roof:
We spotted a few really nice birches…
Then after a warming lunch of chicken soup, Audrey bade us goodbye (at least I think that's what she was saying):
Now from the Department of Eagle-Eyed Weavers comes this find from Melda: if you look carefullly at pages 39 and 40 of A Crepe is Not Just a Pancake (see Monographs in sidebar), you will see that 12-shaft drafts #1205 and #1206 are exact duplicates of drafts #1203 and #1204. Oops! Good catch, Melda. That will be corrected in the next edition.
