Things have been a bit crazy around here. Joel broke his arm playing baseball on Easter at the annual Easter egg hunt, potluck and softball game tagging a 10 year old at second base. He'll be out of commission until the end of the month and can expect another month before the arm is mostly back to normal. (His doctor said that softball and soccer are their bread and butter). So I'm carrying wood, feeding the chickens, planting all the seeds, doing all of his chores as well as my own. And we won't have curry for dinner for another month as that's his specialty and I'm not even trying. We've had great help from family and friends and we're going to be fine. Oldest daughter came out for two days and did heroic work mowing, weeding and planting. Daughter number 2 has offered her yurt to anyone coming to help out and daughter number 3 has a plane reservation for June and who knows what sort of pieces she will have to pick up by then.....
And I've managed to get the next set of rugs with our darkest wool woven in between stuff. The three hemmed ones are washed and hanging on the line to dry. The two with fringes will get finished next week.

I was just about to start weaving this year's crop of wool rugs as Joel has finished spinning up last year's wool, when one of the side pieces on my loom split. Thought I was dead in the water until we could get a piece of hardwood to replace the board,
but, Joel to the rescue. Assuring me that epoxy is actually stronger than wood he glued the parts together and added a few screws for for good measure. It's holding just fine.
