We are socked in by the front....rainy days have been in the forecast for the last several days! It was a good day to be at the studio!
Bonnie arrived really early so that she could vacuum the studio...especially around Carl's loom (and on top of it!!!) He had dust bunnies jumping down on his warp! Of course, this was the day that a lot of folks decided to avoid the rush and come early to weaving! Thank you, Bonnie!!!
Carl had joined some large pieces of flannel together for his next rug, and Roz and Christy volunteered to cut the strips. Irene was back with us today, and showed off her scarf that she and Linda beamed last week. All finished!!! Guess that means she is officially hooked on weaving!
Yes, that's right....Irene is going to take Carol's beginning weaving course!
Joining her is Polly....she wove here at the Center about 10 years ago, and she's ready to begin again!
Both ladies had lots of fun choosing their colors for their first warp for the table loom.
Bonnie had finished her vacuuming, and got busy on her loom. Now, if she can just get the other LADIES to get busy, too!!!
Linda, Barb and Linda had their own projects going. Weaving....chatting....weaving.....chatting.....you know the drill! It wasn't too long until Linda finished the last scarf on the Pup....two scarves cut off that loom today!!!!!
The nylon works nicely for walker bags since it holds up to lots of machine washing!
Carl has started the newest rug. He told me that the fabric pieces were chosen by Pat...they look super nice!!!
Congratulations to Harriet....she's now a GREAT-grandmother! She wove this baby blanket for the new arrival....it's super soft!!!
I didn't get pictures of the brigade that was formed to move the weaving magazines from their window perch. Tomorrow, the cabinets under the windows will be moved to the kitchen area of the Studio as part of the remodel. We'll be getting new shelves for our "library" to replace those. We are always trying to make good use of the space we have!
