Just Keepin' On Keepin' On


While Carol is away, you would think that we would be running WILD through the Weaving Department.  Oh, no.....just look at Pat and Lanny working away! 

  We were few in number today, but we got a lot done!

  Sharon brought the items we sent home with her for Allan to work on:  Tina's beam for her new loom looks FANTASTIC!  And, he worked his magic on my son-in-law's Inkle Loom.  What would we do without him?????

  Bonnie got to be with us today, too.  She supervised and kept us company until after lunch.

Tina and I got the warp on the Herald Loom. 

What a great way of getting a long warp on a loom......now it just needs to be threaded.

  We are thinking that the colors remind us of California Wine Country.

Do you agree????
  The colors don't show up as well as I would like, but the dark greens, along with all the other shades of green, work well with the tans and blues.

  Both of the sectional warps are designed to be "stash busters!"  We've already started looking for great fabric to go with the warps.  Pat really got into the action with all the fabric stashed in the cabinets.  YEAH!!!!!

  It is so much fun planning new projects!


Last, but certainly not least, is a picture of the pillowcases and sheets that Carol left at the Center before she went north.  I'm thinking they will work well with either one of our new warps!

That's it for today.........
Happy Weaving!

That warp is beautiful. It will make some nice placemats or whatever. I would have liked to stay a bit longer, but those stupied feet swelling up, I really need to get home and put them up. (I don't understand it.)

Glad you guys had a good time at weaving today! So, I can't wait to show you the project that I am weaving in the pre conference. Talk about incredible! It is something to weave the 2 warps at the same time. It's not really double cloth because it's all interlaced but the possibilities are endless!!
Linda and I'll be back next Tuesday!

Love the warp, beautiful colors. You guys are always so busy and produce such lovely items, all of it.
