This month has been interesting. So far I have worked on a quilt top that is nearing completion. I have done more on it since the last post, but I have not take any pictures. When I get more I will be sure to share them here.
I had my taxes prepared and got a nice surprise there. Since I had a few dollars to spend, I decided to get a warping frame for my loom. This allows me to make my own warps (the basis of the woven cloth) My warping board has two legs, so it is leaned against a wall for use.
Of course, I used it the first chance I got. I did not take a picture while it was on the board (oops) but here is my first warp.
With the Saori loom, putting the warp thru the mechanism (reed and heddles) can be done at a table. This is very nice for my back - no leaning over the loom to do it.
Here is the warp wound onto the warp beam ready to weave.
Today - and based on the usual schedule of UPS - more likely tonight - I am getting a spinning wheel delivered. It will look like this one.
