another birthday

May 25, 2017

Happy days, Carrie

 looking forward to a very exciting rest of the year

sweet 16!

book pages for May are finished

Japanese designs frequently use curving lines to represent water

they unite the design elements and suggest coolness in Summer patterns

now what is next?

another warp ready for the loom

black and natural silk from Sanjo Silk

the tiny ball , top right, was all that is left of the natural

living dangerously!

winding 4 threads at a time

it helps to have a horizontal warping reel

holding them between my fingers

once you get going it is quick and fairly tangle free

taking the picture with my left hand was more of a challenge.

    I love using a warping mill and need to buy a new one, since the one I have was homemade and rickety. Do you recommend the horizontal over the vertical? Mine is vertical . . . Is there a brand you love?

      Kerry – the horizontal one I use all the time is homemade, I bought it in a garage sale 15 years ago. It is rickety and I have mended it a couple times, it is big but folds up for storage. I prefer it over anything I have ever used. I do have a table top, vertical one made by a well know co. – which my students sometimes use but I don’t like. When the rickety one gives up so do I!
