Finished the tea towels

2009-10-04_1834
Yesterday I had a visit from the amazing Sydney weaver Liz Calnan. It was great to meet Liz, see some of our work and to chat about weaving and looms. Liz is a wonderful lady and I was most thankful she stopped by for a cuppa.
In the afternoon I finished the tea towels warp (design by Ingrid Bosel) and today finished the towels off and ready for family gifts for Christmas.

  1. Good job! The towels look great finished. Ready for Christmas, October 4th???

    I like your new header a lot, and also the aubergine painting. Nice to finally have a chance to catch up with your blog.

    • Thanks Fern,
      I know the gifts are finished a bit early but now I won’t have to stress nearer the holidays :o) and I’m not sure what my next weaving project will be.
      Cheers

  2. wow…the towels are awesome……really beautiful.
    How do you like the Weavebird??? I toy with the idea of getting one, but I only know one person who has had one, and she didn’t like it. Not sure if I trust her opinion though. So I would love to hear what you think.

    • Hi Hilary, My weavebird is hit & miss with different projects, but when it is behaving good the weaving is awesome! It weaves slow though, every time I weave too quick the solinoids clog. It has a lot of nice features which I like. I know of another weaver in Australia who is very unhappy with her weavebird but all the AVL owners I know love their AVLs. I have just got an AVL which is not warped yet, I will keep you posted on the difference. AVL have an amazing after sales service too…… I hope this helps you.

  3. Hi Shirley

    Thanks for your message about Liz. She’s a wonderful and inspiring teacher as well as weaver – we’re definitely missing her here in Sydney!

    Your towels look great. I always love a neatly folded pile of new weaving, all that work coming to a happy conclusion.

    Cheers
    Judy
