New Skein

I finished last weeks hand dyed blanket fabric and cut it off of the loom so that I could get it washed and see how it looked before I proceeded with the next skein of hand dyed.  I did not get it washed and here it sits in the pile of "to do's".

However I could not wait to get the new skein of hand dyed perle cotton on the shuttle and see how it looked.  I filled 4, 6 inch bobbins full as full can be and I kept them in order so that the fabric would reflect the color order of the skein.

This time I have not done any pattern overlay, I have an idea about what I want to do with this fabric, if my sewing skills will not disappoint me.  However, I am not ready to put it out in the blog world yet.  Maybe in a couple of weeks I will be able to show you something.

My focus right now is to figure out something I can do with the warps that are already on the loom, that is different than what I have been doing, it can be a win, win situation.  I would have something new to sell at the fall shows,  I would weave up some of my overwhelming stash of yarn, and I would have empty looms!

Stay tuned and keep on Crafting, tina
