December has been a month of preparation for the coming holidays, so little time was spent on crafts. Family, food and holiday events filled the month. The Mill Hill beaded cross stitch continues to be worked on in the evenings. At least the overall design can now be seen.
I’m setting up my loom to weave some companion fabric for a handwoven Shibori yardage completed earlier this year. Even an experienced weaver makes silly errors. I swear I checked more than once to be sure the cross was properly placed on the lea sticks. I corrected my mistake the best I could . The real test will be when the warp is wound on the back beam.(I setup front to back) so now to begin the threading.
January brings a workshop with Diane Totten. The loom is yet to be setup. All the yarns have been purchased so next weeks agenda will be choosing a weave structure and setting up my Baby Mac.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! May this coming year let you explore your craft to its fullest.
New year, new adventures! Hope you have a good workshop–know you’ll have interesting things to share!
Cheryl, Hope your staying warm. See you in the New Year.
That step of winding onto the back near is always the moment of truth! Have a great 2015!
You inspire me to get my loom set up and get a warp on! Funny how important that cross is…hope you got it on smoothly. Happy Creative Year to you!
Deb, Thank you!
