Recently I moved my Baby Wolf loom back into my studio, wanting to start weaving again after a long break. I don't know why, but having it in another room made me not want to weave. Okay-that's good to know about myself-the loom is back to where it used to be, and I'm weaving again. Nice! This is a warp that I put on the loom in order to weave kitchen towels, way back in December 2013, with various colors of 8/2 cotton. I set it up as a four shaft twill and I wanted to be able to play with different colors in the weft.
First off was a tomato red weft:

On the quilting side of things, I have an overflowing neutral scrap container which meant it was a good time for an improv or free form quilt. I'm calling it my "Why Not?" quilt, as I'm combining solids, batiks, and traditional fabrics all in one quilt. Gosh. I think that I'm breaking some sort of quilting rule by doing that-shhhh, don't tell ;-) I love the freedom of the quilt form and I have 37 blocks done so far.
The other day my husband, Marshall, and I were out hiking with our dogs and came across some little tracks in the snow. A raccoon, maybe?
