a boat


I got this cute old shuttle as a very much appreciated Xmas gift from an old lady who still weaves at 96.
It's so short and chubby that I use it for holding my cards.

On Saturday we went to see this film. Fabulous.
I just loved it - and not only because Colin Firth is in it! -
if you're planning to go to the cinema, make sure you don't miss the set design,
especially Logue's studio.

Glad to hear another good review of that movie. It's on my "to see" list!

The shuttle is so very cute, Doni. Is it an antique?

Meg, I have no idea - this lady started weaving when she was 18, so we could say it's at least vintage!

What an adorable use of a shuttle, so apropos. And weaving at 96...may we all be so lucky!
