Two Scarves Completed

The lovely warp on my loom has been nice to weave on this past week.  I haven't been doing a lot else except following up on getting household things sorted and dealt with. For example getting the septic tank repaired - that is still on-going.  Also the insurance adjuster should be here Monday. 
Weaving has been a pleasant reprieve from those things. 

I finished one of the scarves last week but just had not bothered to get a photo of it. 

The second scarf came off the loom last night, so it is not truly finished but I can call it a finish.  This one only needs to have a good wash, then I will take it out wet and iron it.  After that it hangs to dry. Ironing while wet helps to marry the woven fabric together a bit better. When I do this, I pull the selvedges straight as I iron.  

Here is the second one.  As they came from the same dyed warp they look similar but have differences. 

Here is a photo that puts then side by side so you can play "find the differences" if you want to. 

Soon, I want to get back to the quilt blocks that keep staring back at me.  I think I have decided to change the layout completely and do this one in sections to make a larger quilt. 
I am thinking it will look something like this:

This will allow me to use some lovely hand dyed fabrics in those alternate squares.   And I have a lot of fabrics that I have dyed and also some that I have from Colorways by Vicki.
I am uncertain about the white background.  That could change as I start working on it. I may use a batik or a black for the background.  I will see what the muse decides. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Those are just gorgeous Gene! I know the feeling when you have multiple loves: enjoying the process of one but as it draws to a close, anxious to get onto the other!
