Finally back to the loom

Somehow weaving has gotten pushed way down the list, too many things interfering with life, makes for a grumpy weaver in this house. I haven't figure out how to remedy what's keeping me away from the loom so much these past few years but it's not going to can't continue as it affects my mental health.

Today I made sure I got time at the loom weaving on the towel warp that's been on the Macomber for weeks. I still had a few phone calls to answer and running up and down the stairs doing laundry to deal with but it felt so good to be weaving.......I mean this is what I do, this is what fuels my soul.

I'm hoping to spend more time at the loom in the next few days, I do have some things to do out of the house one day but hopefully the rest of the time I'll be weaving, planning projects to weave, washing and hemming towels that I've woven.

Fire season finally ended last Thursday after 1/2" of rain - still warm, dry and brown after that but people were out burning piles of debris that very day - so silly not to wait for more rain to fall. We had some good rain the past two days.....hoping for a rainy snowy winter to make a dent in this drought so next year is just the normal scary fire season not the super scary one like this year.


  1. That's such great news that you're starting to get rain!

    Your towels look great! I know what you mean about life getting in the way and pushing our fibery interests down the list. I'm trying hard to get my fiber time back too.

    Happy weaving!

  2. Hooray! You made it through the fire season. Hope you can breathe easier for a few months.

  3. Thank goodness for the rain and I am glad you are getting your "happy place" time back. It really does affect our mental health! Happy weaving. Your towels are beautiful! :)
