This and that.........

 A big thank you to Susan of the Thrums blog for posting this plaited twill and herringbone draft she got off of handweaving.net . Her baby blankets are so beautiful. My towels are much plainer as I want to weave many colors. I used two different off whites in the warp, one of them a barberpole of two colors of off white.  I love this draft so much I'll probably weave something else in it soon, maybe some table runners. 

I've also been working on small cross stitch projects in the evenings but can't show those since they're gifts. Actually, I shouldn't have shown this towel pic above as most of this warp will end up being gifts.  I'm getting close to starting a quilt top for the trundle bed in the guest room/office but need to finish all holiday gifts first. 

Fire season isn't over yet, not sure when it will be but we have had some rain which has given some relief on the fire front. Unfortunately, it's been in the mid 90's and dry again. The next two days will go down to the mid-70's but then temps back up to the upper 80's/90. I am so ready for fall weather, hoping it happens soon. 

I really haven't had anything to share lately, kind of still in a funk, and just not doing anything I think is share worthy.  Maybe that will improve, maybe not but I can't worry about it. I do appreciate all who check in when I do post..........
