My neighbors/friends to the left and I decorated ourt children's bikes and had a good old fashioned "Fourth of July Bike Parade" around our cul-de-sac.
I've made a bit of progress on the tri-loom. I hope to have it ready for use by the weekend, but that may be a bit ambitious. Sheepish Annie suggested that I try a nailgun, and for a few minutes I got excited about the prospect of getting all those nails in with a pull of the trigger (I even started a Google serach) until I remembered something: no nailguns are allowed in our home as DH has had to sew up more than a few eyeballs (not anyone we know) after nails were thrust into them by such guns. I've always wanted one, though, but I have to respect DH's feelings about them since he is really supportive of my fiber activities, and is truly concerned about nailgun dangers. We also don't own any bungy-cords...yes, they tend to spring back and insert their gigantic hooks into the eyes of unsuspecting users. Those ratchet style cords work pretty well and are much safer.
On a happier note, it is raining!! We have been on water restrictions for a month or so, so the rain is more than welcomed. It is all dark and stormy out, and I love it.
