Blanket order complete!

I have finished weaving those blankets from last week, in fact they are off the loom, serged, hemmed, washed and hung to dry, they are inventoried and tagged, and yes they have even been delivered!  It really felt good to get that done!  The customer has decided to give those blankets to someone else, and wants 2 more!  That is a good kind of customer to have!

This is the light shining just right from last week, so that I can see the shadow from the pattern, and catch mistakes!
Both blankets ready to be hemmed, I love the pattern so much, it is a shame that you can't see it very well with the Daffodil pattern weft!

The customer agrees with this, and so when I get ready to do the next set sometime next month, we will be choosing new colors that will show up.  I have invited her to my studio, so that she can see what I have on hand that is ready to go.

With the blankets done, I was able to start on the Bread Cloths with the green stripes.  If you click on this picture you can see the Swedish lace pattern in the middle.

While you are there, check out my new wooden temple on her maiden voyage!  I love it!  I was using a temple on loan from the weaving center, that really is more suited to rugs, so this is a vast improvement.  I still have to advance the temple just as often, but the edge doesn't show any evidence of the temple usage.  Awesome!

That is all for now, it is time to get ready for the Good Friday service at Church tonight.  Here's wishing you a blessed Good Friday, and a Happy Easter!

Happy Weaving, Tina

I'm so glad the temple is doing the trick for your bread cloths. What a handy tool. The throws are so lovely!

The bread cloths are wonderful. You are moving right along on your inventory of baby blankets. What a problem to have selling 2 and then the customer wanting 2 more. The is great!

Can you tell me why you are using the shuttle backwards? The thread is supposed to come out towards the fell. If you look at the shuttle end-on, you will see that it looks just like a shed, with one side taller than the other. The tall side goes towards the reed. If instead, you have just set the shuttle there, just ignore this.
