Last Tuesday in May!!!

  Oh my....time sure flies when you're having fun!!!  And, today was no exception!  The weavers arrived and got to work on their projects...all the while catching up on all the news!
  By the way, lots of good, healing thoughts go out to Maggie's kitty, Leo!  It seems that he had an encounter with another critter.  Maggie was at home waiting to hear more from her vet.  Hopefully he'll get to come home this afternoon for some TLC and a good rest.

Ann got the treadles tied under the loom, and got to work on her log cabin rug. 

It's amazing what you can do with a two shaft loom.   You can just see where she has started the switch in the pattern.  What a great pattern!!!


Cindy was busy winding a new warp back at the board while Eiko worked on her first warp.
  She got to hemstitch again today...she'll be a pro before long!!!

  Lanny's scarf warp is looking great!!!  Those colors look so nice together!  And, Pat is almost to the end of the warp on her loom.  Wonder what will be next????

Carl gathered more cloth for the stripes in his rug.  This will be a true rag rug!!!
  Ms. Ila wove today withOUT glasses!  Oh yes!  She is really enjoying NOT wearing her glasses anymore!!!  Did you know her eyes were that BLUE????

It happened this afternoon!  Roz got to cut off her warp!
  It's so much fun to roll out the complete warp to see all the pieces.

  And, I cut off my warp of mug rugs!!!!  There were twelve snail trail/cat track mug rugs in all.

  Ms. Pat had such a good time last week, that she came back to the Center today with Tina. 

Bonnie found some lovely floral print that was already joined to use in her warp.  This should just about finish it.

  And, she brought her blanket that she's been weaving at home.  It is done in "thick and thin" and it took a while to get it finished.  It's soooo soft!!!!

  This has to be my picture of the day!

Yes....I'm watching YOU!!!  
Cindy was working on her loom........

Happy Weaving!

Another busy day. Bang, bang went the looms, swish, swish went the shuttles and chatter chatter went the weavers. What a happy buzz.

Okay, so now I want to do a blanket using the thick and thin that Bonnie used, and the same warp structure that Ann is using! I need to empty some looms to do it!

Maggie said...

It looks like fun! Leo is home and fine. Thanks for the good wishes!

Love the 2 harness rug in log cabin. I did some wool blankets in the same colors and pattern. I LOVE messing with a 2 harness loom!

I was so excited to finally be weaving. Seeing the log cabin pattern come alive was great fun.

Another biggie for the day was buying a rigid heddle loom. There had been a flier for the loom on the bulletin board for a year. Last week on a whim I thought I'll call to see if it is still available. It was and it was delivered to the center on Tuesday. The rigid heddle is a great way to weave on vacation and it will be fun as Karen said to keep "messing with a 2 harness loom."
