While I was reformating my computer and cleaning up my files I found the slideshow
for The Silk Road, last year's
Folklife Festival at the Smithsonian. It was so hot and dry last July - you
felt like you were on the Silk Road with the amount of dust that was kicking
up. Hard to conjure up that feeling with the cool, damp, dreary days we've been
having lately. Of course, with 21 school days until vacation, I guess it's good
it doesn't feel like summer.
I took the blanket off the loom. I'll post pictures after I twist the fringe
and wash it.
