It feels like forever, but I’m finally weaving again! It seems like so many things have taken up my weaving time lately, I’m blaming the fitbit….all that walking is really eating into my play time!
I decided to go to my ‘happy place’ and put on a 6 tea towel warp, both to use up my stash and to get back into the rhythm. Don’t you love the look of a fresh warp over the back beam?
The pattern I’m using is 6 shaft 2/2 twill and the colours in the warp are silver grey, navy, shale grey, slate grey and beige.
I finally, and I mean finally finished the silk scarf, and I’m really happy with the result, but it took literally forever! I swear I had this sitting on the dining table for weeks as I slowly stitched the cord to the edge. The result is stunning though, but I don’t want to have to do it again anytime soon!
Here it is in all it’s glory….
At the beginning of this post I was blaming my fitbit for not having enough loom time, but I must admit that a few ‘crafty’ projects have managed to sneak in.
My KitchenAid mixer got a new set of duds…after 34 years of hard work I think ‘Betsy’ deserves a new look!
Spanish Orange and Almond Cake to end the meal. The Spanish usually decorate this cake with the cross of St. James of Compostela and I think it looks amazing and it tasted spectacular! !
