What's Going On????
On our usual Tuesday blogs you see the Tuesday Weavers just doing their "thing" and plotting and planning for more threads and new projects.
Allan finished up a rug this morning, and cut it off so he could go ahead and tie the fringes. He also had a warp thread go wonky, and he wanted to get that fixed, too.
.....yes, even in this weaving haven we have things that go wrong......never fear!!!
But, the rest of this blog today is dedicated to the projects on (or going on) the looms!
This is Bonnie's trial tote bag. The weft is wool wrapped jute, and we thought it might felt. Well.....the wool did felt, but the jute didn't shrink!!! That's OK....it was an experiment!
Bonnie was working on the threading today.
Tina is back to work on the linen towels. She inserted a little row of hand manipulated lace near the hem line.
Ms. Joyce is threading a snail trail pattern for some mug rugs.
I have about 25 inches more to weave on this scarf.
Ms. Ila is weaving more mug rugs using M&W threading.
La Donna is weaving a shawl on the triangle loom.
Ann is hard at work on the rug loom.
We tease Pat a lot about using her favorite color....YELLOW! She's working on a table runner right now. (And, you should know that she led the charge on the Annex and the war against the mice!!! With her guidance, we had that job knocked out early this morning!)
And, this, my friends, is a typical Tuesday at the Center!!!! But, did I tell you there was a lot of laughing and chatting and fun???? There was!
