My items are all tagged and packed ready for check-in at the Houston Handweavers Sale. Today I helped with setting up the sale. It’s amazing how items entered by 40 some members is organized into a beautiful display by a small group of volunteers. Tomorrow when the sale opens the challenge will be to keep that display as beautiful as it was at the end of set-up.

Took a break from weaving to prepare 2 warps. The warping board has several guide strings hanging down that are for different warp length measurements. Each of the warps pictured, will be woven as 8 harness, shadow weave towels. The grape or purple warp will be tied to the end of the fall leaf colored warp, after those towels are woven and cut off. Tying on to an existing warp takes just as long as setting up the loom initially, but there is one benefit there will be no threading errors or denting errors.
This shows my new yarn storage shelves. Half of the yarn had been in boxes, bags or simply stacked in a closet. Of course the yarn I always wanted was on the bottom of the pile. My husbands solution was to increase my shelve space. So all the yarn was taken off existing shelves, to move in the new shelves. The yarn is sorted by type and color when possible and placed on the new shelves. This is the real reason I couldn’t weave this weekend, The loom was surrounded by yarn. So I warped instead.
Kitchen towels of 8/2 cotton. I’ve named this color scheme “Fire”. The first 3 towels will look like this. While in the next 2, I’m using red in the weft in addition to the orange and yellow. This is a Bronson Lace weave structure.
