Hope you are having a wonderful day. I got the call this morning that the niece is in the process of having the baby. Most of you know threecollie, and that is her daughter! We are all excited and can't wait to hear the news that Peggy Ann has arrived! Have a wonderful day.

Tomorrow I will have some more pictures of the weaving process. Until then, have a wonderful evening.

The first thing in starting a weaving project is deciding on what you are going to weave and then do the designing. Most designs that I do I get out of weaving books. I am not good enough to design my own yet.
I put the yarn ends over the back of my loom to wind on the warper, because it keeps the threads from twisting and getting caught.
I did have a video of me warping, but the video didn't want to down load. When I wind on the warp I go around until I have the width in inches on the warper. The ties you see on the warp is what I use to keep the warp from getting all tangled when I take it off to put on the loom. I will try to down load the video later today. This is just the beginning. I will have your next lesson soon.
Have a great day.

Hope you are staying warm in this deep freeze of a winter. We are trying, the hubby had a head cold(still does) and the husband he is, gave it to me! I am waiting for the son to be the next one in line! Not too bad, but still leaves you not wanting to do a whole heck of a lot.
Not much else is going on at this moment. Just trying to stay healthy and find a warm enough time to go out in the barn and get some weaving done.

Not much else has been going on. The same thing goes on from day to day. Chores, pick-up house, doing errands, weaving and so forth. We had a few days of 47 to 50 degree weather with some rain. Now it is cold again and calling for snow showers.
Take care and have a great week.

Not much has been going on. I finished my curtains and now all I have to do is get them hung. Have some minor adjustments to do to the fixtures so that I can get curtain rods put up on the windows. I so envy people that can keep clutter out of their houses. Unfortunately, my house has lots of stuff which causes lots of clutter that drives me insane at times. Have you ever had those moments that you just want to throw up your hands and just get a dumpster and start throwing things into it. I have those moments a lot now that I am home more often than not. I can't wait for the 30's to make its appearance and stay that way so that I can spend all my time out in the barn weaving.
I am in the process of getting the next warp ready to weave some cloths do go with my towels that I have just finished.
Hope you all have a wonderful evening.
