Saturday evening, and I wore myself out in the garden today, snipping back spent flowers and plants and preparing the beds for winter. I am about half way finished, and the wheelbarrow is piled high!!!
A cup of tea, a cookies, and a little nap revived me enough that I was able to start winding the warp for my new planned project on the loom, having finished the last batch of tea towels.
as they came from the loom
washed, pressed and awaiting hemming
This warp is delightful, - not as long, nor as wide - prospects of beaming and threading and sleying just eight inches of ends instead of twenty-four.
The warp is a lovely wheat coloured Bambu and the weft a delicious yellow.....
I can hardly wait, but there are only a few days left to enjoy lovely October sunshine
and brilliant blue October skies
while I fill the wheelbarrow and feed the compost bin.
And then the Melancholy Month of November....
ah well - Christmas comes after and I have lots of weaving plans
