The next directions…

I have prepared my warps for the next two directions – East/Yellow and North/Red. I had them sitting on a table next to my loom and noticed that my mind must have been very focussed on these colours as I had bought tulips that were these colours too…

So, here are the warps, waiting to be put onto the loom…

Red & Yellow

The vase that the flowers are in is from the Blue Horse Gallery (our neighbours) and is one of Anna’s raku vases.

Well, I can’t wait to get the next warp on the loom and get started and see where it takes me.

And the ends of another half and half scarf that I made. I decided that I wanted to make a scarf without a fringe. So I did a Phillipine edging with the threads and then took them back up into the weaving. Wow – took a long time, but nice to have a different finish for the scarf.

This image shows both sides – right and wrong side of the finish, before trimming the ends…
