More weaving fun times



More weaving samples completed! I love love the inlay one (white picture). Its a wool warp with bamboo weft inlayed with bamboo roving. I'm going to be using this technique in an upcoming project with natural dyes, can't wait!



We also had a little visitor with us in the loom room, meet Lily, she is a french bulldog and is so so lovely and cute. She ended up finding a quiet place to sleep under a table on top of a bag of wool...it was the cutest.


Off to have dinner with friends!

Back to school times!


So this week I have started school again and we went straight to it. In weaving class, we warped up another sampler project...this one works a little different, everyone warps up for a different technique and you can pick and choose which one you work on as long as you have 4-6 samples at the end of it. They call it a round robin...I think it's a great way to get lots of samples without having to warp up tons of times.

I'm working on a double weave, which is when you weave on two warps, fun times!
Check out our sweet loom room...back to back floor looms!
Happy Friday dear readers!
