Oh Well.....blame it on the warp and weft.

ABC Wednesday
December 13th, 2017
The letter this week is evidently W
for Warp and for Weft

It seems I missed a week somehow during the first part of December!!!

How did I do that?

Oh, I know how I did that - 

I was so delighted to have my eight shaft dressed and in harness 

and was too busy throwing the WEFT through the WARP

and making kitchen towels to give away at Christmas.

Just a little short Warp to help balance the loom

while my son  patiently tied

all the cords and the strings and the heddles

to dress Her Ladyship.

More Ws here at ABC Wednesday
now we're back on track.

It is beautiful Hildred. Weaving seems so popular over your side of the Pond - I only know one person here who does it. I love your choice of colours.

Whoopee, wonderful work wrought by the wizard weaving woman.

I love the reds in the new kitchen towels! Lucky those who are on your Christmas list! You may have lost a week, but it seems you were lost in perfect bliss creating these beautiful pieces.

My father was wonderful with wood. He even made a large loom for my mother to use. He set it up in our patio room when I was little and I remember weaving place mats on it. When they moved it was given away, maybe to a school or craft classroom. - Margy

I came by to wish you a Happy New Year, Hildred. I like the red in the towels (my favorite color). You've been very busy! Now what is your next project in the new year? Our 3 oldest Grands arrive tonight for a few days of visiting and skiing. We finally got snow (about 2') over Christmas. Take Care and Happy 2018!
