TW Christmas Pot Luck!

It was a much smaller than usual group today at weaving.  Though we made up for it with a wonderful pot luck, with everything from Spicy Cauliflower soup to yummy chocolate cake!  We even had enough to share with the worker bees upstairs in the shop/office area!

I can say that we were a very quiet group as well, which is usually not the case!  Let me show you a little of what is on the looms as of today.

 Carl and Cindy are beaming a new rug warp on the old barn loom. Here is Carl at the reins!  He is just getting ready to smooth out those threads, after a wind on.

I just love how it looks on the back beam!.  This is a wool warp, threaded at 6 ends per inch I believe.
I think that it will make marvelous Blue Jean Rugs!

Ila is churning out the mug rugs on the Wolf Pup that we used to demonstrate at the Foothills Craft Show last month.  I believe she is doing 4 Mug Rugs per color.

Bonnie is threading a new hand towel warp.

While Lou Ann is doing Place-mats.

I have finally started winding on this pesky Bread Cloth warp, I was determined not to leave until it looked presentable!

And Allan has made great progress on the Annex addition!  We will be ready to paint it when the weather will co-operate!

I know that I didn't get a picture of  Andy today, she is putting a warp on for Pat to use for an upcoming workshop.  We sure missed both Pat and Linda today, they are both in our prayers as they heal from their surgeries.  The only picture I got of Carol was when I realized we were both wearing the same faded red shirt! " It's so comfortable", we both said!

As each one left we wished each other a Merry Christmas.  As I  now wish to you as well, from all of us  Tuesday Weavers, to all of you, Merry Christmas, and Happy Weaving, Tina for all!
