Warping and Wefting!

Weaver's paradise

Weaving daily. Weaving nightly. Weaving, weaving, weaving.

I really don't want to waste my time researching about medals, which, to be honest, do not excite me all that much. I would rather write a few sentences of random text as part of some 'stream of consciousness' (as Billy James might have said) just to fluff out the body of the beast. Frankly, I have more important things to do than to spaff my time up the wall, so to speak. However, the research on warps and wefts, etc. is clearly fascinating and a preferred topic of discussion.
