Where has the time gone?

I can't believe how quickly summer passed by. We have been pretty busy but now that school has started  my time is more my own. The fall shows will be here before I am ready! I really need to get busy and weave up more things!

Here is what is on two of my looms this week. I put ten yards of 8/2 natural cotton on the Schacht standard loom. I like to use a cotton novelty yarn for weft. I have made lots of these and they sell very well. What you can't see are stripes of colors done in twill at both ends.

I am also working on a wool rug on the Newcomb Studio loom. It doesn't show up very well but the wool is a pale green with dark green flecks in it. Here is a close up.

I haven't decided how long this rug will be yet but I am leaning towards making a runner.

I still have warps waiting to be wound on two looms. It sure would be nice to go to the studio and find that someone has warped the looms for me! So much to do but so little time!



  1. Craft Fair time will be here before we know it!!! But, it looks like you've got a good start on your handwovens!!!

  2. I love those towels that you make. I do like that pale green with that warp. Have fun.

  3. Maybe the loom fairy will appear one day when you least expect it!
