twill, different yarn weights

more log cabin – sort of!

but the fun really began when they got down on the floor and started sharing some old bobbins

with southern Ontario experiencing a major snowstorm and a blizzard forecast for the East coast I hesitate to show this – but they are inside!

    I have always loved Dutch Iris. These are spectacular, Jean. Isn’t the colour heavenly?

    I love those little irises, mine grow outside but haven’t dared to show themselves just yet. I have found my snowdrops and hellebores though. Spring IS coming. Enjoy your weekend Jean.

      Blandina – they have a soft, sweet scent that is overlooked when out in the garden, I love to have a pot inside in the spring

    oh, heavenly harmony! i love the scent of paperwhites, which i forgot to do this year. but iris! and i love your students on the floor sharing bobbins. so cool! my weaving teacher at college used to weave off student’s abandoned ends of warps…i always wove mine right up to the absolute last possible bit (often using my fingers and the weft butterflied).

      Velma – these two students are so excited and happy, they are going to weave to the absolute end – and both now are working on looms at home. It takes me back to the time I was excited by every new discovery.
