This is proving easier than I expected! I have now, as you may or may not have noticed, imported my entire travel blog (links on the right-hand side) and am starting to bring over my travel photo pages. There are a lot of them, so I expect it will take awhile to get all the content up there, but the framework is done. I am very happy, especially since I discovered that no custom code is required. The photo gallery plugin that I’m using does it all, and very neatly!
So check out the travel blog, if you haven’t already. And the photos from Thailand, though I still need to finish off the galleries. Unfortunately I have to leave for an all-day puzzle game soon, so I probably won’t get to finish off all the galleries for Thailand, but I’ve made a good start.
Oh, and I wove a yard of fabric yesterday. I had worried that it might become tedious, and was starting to get bored, but then I decided to start working on my technique, using the things that Laura Fry taught me. Whew! It’s really hard to un-learn muscle memory, but my rhythm of throwing and catching the shuttle, then beating, has really improved. I’ve been striving for smoothness of movement, not focusing on speed yet – but I can sense that speed will come in time. This is keeping me so focused and intent that I barely notice time passing.
My plan for this coming week is to work as hard as I can on weaving and the website. My goal is to get 13 yards woven by end of day Wednesday, which means weaving up 2 yards/day for the next five days. Ambitious, but I think I can probably do it. I would also like to port over my entire website in the same time period – basically working on the website or weaving, dawn to dusk. That is also an ambitious goal, but I really want to get this stuff done before starting the new job, as I don’t know how much time/energy I’ll have afterwards.
