On and Off...!

I have been busy lately using my heddle loom and making scarves.
I was aiming for warm country colours shades of green 
and brown with a splash of heather.
When you warp it up you only have a picture in your mind of the finished article.

Well last night these two scarves came off the loom and 
I am thrilled with them. I just need to finish them off 
and they will be ready for my shop.

What a difference a week makes...!

What a difference a week makes....!

Last week at Heckington Show the Lincolnshire Guild of Spinners and Weavers were battling with the mud.

The Revesby Show one week later was bathed in sunshine.

We have our own marquee at Revesby and members from all over the county come together to spin and weave and showcase our skills.

Inkle Loom
This is an electric spinning wheel. A modern take on the traditional wheel. Very useful if you have arthritic knees or foot problems. They can come with a battery pack, which enables you to use away from an electrical supply (ie in the middle of a field at RevesbyShow!)

All in all it was a very enjoyable day.
