I finished winding the white warp and have taken it off the rough sley before beaming on the loom.
Once the white warp was finished, I began direct warping my 20″ Schacht Flip with a 2.5 yard warp for more placemats. These will be a natural warp and a cocoa brown weft placemat pattern I designed for the rigid heddle loom. More about that in a future post.
I plan to finish beaming the rigid heddle loom tomorrow. I will also start weaving the placemats then.
Although it’s great fun planning and starting two weaving projects, I assure you I stop to smell the flowers. Well, I stop and take pictures of them at least.
Featured here are the state flower of Maryland, the black eyed Susan. We had a huge batch of them in another part of the garden and when we move the butterfly bush, a few came along for the ride.
I couldn’t resist a photo of these flowers although I am uncertain if they are hollyhocks or gladiolas. I believe they are gladis but would appreciate any help you have to offer on identifying these lovely orange beauties growing in a neighbors garden.
