Summer fun!

Greetings from the great state of Texas!  I am here at my mothers family reunion.  We are expecting around 100 people.  It should be fun.

Before I left I was able to complete the looper rugs I started last week, I really like the plum one pictured here.

A month or so ago I posted about these breadcloths, and about how I was fooling the loom into doing an unbalanced weave.
I worked the first half of one cloth, and I just wasn't enjoying it.
I had about 5 inches of the textured weave, and there it sat.  I decided that I was going to finish it on Monday.  Well, I found every excuse in the book to not sit down and do it.  So I decided to cut and run.

    I then freed the warp from the weft.

Here I have half of the warp freed up.

After I finished, I was able to get thru 1 1/2 in no time.

Well that's it for now, I better get back to the reunion.  I am making Banana Pudding, and a big dish of pasta.

I will be back in town next week, until then, 

Happy Weaving, Tina

Have a really great time and hug your Mom for us!! We have to take care of them!
Like how you solved the problem of the unhappy warp. Looks much better now.
Are you making the same pasta we had on our retreat? That was good!

Glad you got there safe. Have a good time. I really like the way you took out the weft. It really looks better now.

Yes, I am making that same pasta dish! I am going to go ahead and do the layering with the mozzarella like I did on Tuesday.
Maggie that was just the first layer, I will make us some for the week after next.
