Tuesday endings and beginnings!

This Tuesday was jam packed with 14 weavers in the house!  We, as ususal had a ton of things going on!  Lots of projects ending and lots of projects in the beginning stages.

Bonnie finished up her warp of placemats, there were 5 in this batch, and she had already cut off several more, when the cloth beam was too full!

Other Bonnie, was cutting off her rug warp as well, this is the second batch from this warp, I think she may have gotten 8 rugs from this long warp!

This is where Carl left his warp today.  He will cut it off next week.


 Ladonna was showing some of our new weavers the shawl she made on her triangle loom, similar to the loom behind her.  She has taken the odds and ends that we get donated to us here at the center, and made works of art!
She is now working on a shawl with reds.

Lanny is carefully tying on his scarf.  I can't wait to see the it develope!

 I am finishing up a rug warp that I started 3 weeks ago, I had to pull out the half that I had already wound and refresh my memory a little before I continued with the rest of it.  I am trying to use up some of the smaller cones of rug warp to make more room on the shelves.

 I finally got the last half chained off and ready to go.  I designed this warp a little as I went along.  I kept notes on how wide each stripe was. I counted the inches and came up short of where I wanted to be.  So, next week I will wind 2 more inches of  black to go on each outside edge to make it closer to 36.
And last but not least, I present to you, Trudy, our newest student hard at work, and already threading her loom.  

It does seem like several looms always empty out at the same time doesn't it.  There is talk about the new projects going on the looms, I heard other Bonnie talking about making some bags like Lou Ann makes at her house!  I haven't heard what the other weavers are going to do, I guess we will all have to stay tuned to Loomy Tunes to find out.

Thanks for visiting, until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina, for all

Very full day. I even got the floor clean around my loom. Want know what to do without the mess. Maybe something with less mess. Maybe with LouAnn's help some tote bags in blue jean strips. I like it.
