Getting Back in the Groove

It’s taken me several days to sink back into a schedule. I like to take advantage of holidays to get work done because it is so quiet with very few distractions. I stopped weaving for a bit and went up on the roof to try out the fireworks setting on my camera. It is a lot trickier than I thought it would be, plus the outline of a huge pine in the lower right corner….

Then today I finished the second scarf on this Woven Words warp. I will wash them both tomorrow and take appropriate pictures.

At last, I got this merino wool ikat piece on the loom. It is most interesting working with wool in the summer. I was not trying to actually match the sample draped over the harnesses, but rather re-create the same feeling. It remains to be woven if I have succeeded.
And I am in the planning stages for a Blessing Baby Blanket. I’ll be talking about this lots in the weeks to come.

AND I leave again on the 27th! Focus!

    Wow! You have jumped back in with both feet. I love the black and white ikat and those color wrappings in the last photo.

    Hey, Bonnie, when do you sleep? All those projects look great so I'm looking forward to seeing them woven. Where are you off to next? Coming East yet?
