Yesterday another of those late summer thunderstorms moved rapidly through the area. There were five of us gathered around the supper table and all at once everyone's cell phone went off with emergency weather alerts. Then the desktop computer email signal beeped. Then the landline with the same warning. Then a few similar text messages. Yes, we were well and truly alerted. The funny thing is that we would have gotten the same information by looking out the window.
After the storm passed, there was a gorgeous cloud formation. It looked like two clouds, an orange one in front, and a whilte one in back, with a clearly defined border between them. I've never seen anything like it.
While we're talking about borders, I wanted to show you this:
I'm still trying to make sense of the various systems of indicating turning direction in tablet weaving ddrafts. But what does make a lot of sense to me is how much difference a border makes when you're trying to clean up the edges. And a border matching the weft thread? Extra points here.
