And, of course I've been weaving, as well. 

Plus, the morning glories in the garden look particularly nice. 

And I'm still picking stuff out of the garden (the tomatoes were all slow-roasted today.)

I worked in the entry room and part of the kitchen today. 

Eliminated a lot of clutter, made it easier to sweep the rugs and floor, sorted through everything, and swept up a ton of cat hair. 

I will be moving onward.

It still amazes me that I can cut a few lengths of string and end up with something like this.

One dragon picture frame that Dad found in a box plus one small metal rigid heddle I got somewhere equals a very cool rigid heddle.

I spent some time yesterday afternoon warping my scarf-sized looms. There are four now, and four is probably one too many. 

This morning, I beat the cats to the Big Green Loom and wove a bit on my rug, as well:

A very hot day at the yard sale today! But I did get rid of a lot of stuff, and the leftovers are going to the church rummage sale, so that's good. 

Now I'm relaxing a bit, weaving, and writing. It's supposed to be cooler tomorrow, although I won't be setting up. I have tomatoes (and more peppers) to process and pick, and quite a few other things to do. 

I set a budget of $20, and spent $6. Here are two of the things I bought:

Toothpicks and toilet paper tools means I'm warping the band loom again!

I'm doing a September Savings Challenge this month. For the entire month of September, my goal will be to buy only essentials--groceries, gas, cat food and litter, etc.--and to not add to my little herd of looms and spinning equipment. I can wait on fiber purchases, and I certainly don't need any additional spindles. 

In October, I do plan to buy some fiber for spinning, as my stash is rather low (and it's my birthday month, so I'm allowed!) 

My only days off will be for Burlington on the 21st, and I'm giving myself a budget for the yard sales this weekend, but only if I see something I need, like a new-to-me wheelbarrow. (Mine is getting a bit rusty.)

No eBay. 
No Amazon. 
No Ravelry. (Sales posts.)
No Craigslist. 

I am also considering a Use It Up Year for 2015.
