Weaving and Stitching

The last warp I put on my loom is nearing the end of weaving.   The end of the cloth beam looks like this:
The warp was six meters long. With loom waste and finishing shrinkage,  I will get a little less than six yards of fabric.
This particular section makes me very happy:
I love the way the thin strip of batik fabric,  that I trimmed from a project piece, plays against the blue  adding a bit of extra interest.

I also did one little project as a holiday gift. I am hoping she doesn't read my blog.
This little art quilt is just over 12 inches square. I am not sure it shows well on the photo, but I added some irridescent paint to give it a snowy sparkle effect. It was really a fast job because a certain muse named Abby said that I needed to get it done quickly. So on Tuesday night, I was up later than usual stitching away.
I hope to post again before the "big day" - but if I don't, Have a happy holiday, merry Christmas,  peaceful Hannakuh and/or whatever holiday your celebrate.  And if you don't celebrate, then have a great week, anyway!
