Back to Snail Trails

I want to reverse the twill border on the Kings Flower warp, so I cut off the 3 pieces I had on there and moved over to the Snail Trail loom, Lillian. 

True to my plan I am weaving one item to sell and another to gift, since I still have several that need done, yet I need to build up some inventory at the same time.  I had heard a rumor that a Baby blanket for a boy might be needed soon, so with that in mind I chose one of my favorite blues, Parakeet!   I had finished that one and a special order came in for a gift Blanket in the Snail Trails pattern, but in Copper!  This blanket is going to my youngest daughter, who with her husband is in the process of adopting a baby from overseas.  We are hoping to welcome a new one home sometime this year.

I love seeing the colors meet just for a minute on the loom before the old color disappears, and the new color takes over.
Time to call it a day, this is going to be really nice.
One of my other daughters Boyfriend is a Glass Blower, and he had my name this year for Christmas.  The form of the vase in this picture is simply beautiful, isn't it!  I wasn't sure about the colors at first, but I totally love it now, I am always growing when it comes to the world of color, so set in my ways!  Who knows, you might even see this combination on a project or two this year!

That's all for now, Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
