Thanks for popping in this evening Mel. We had a quick dinner of lamb steaks and stir fried vegetables and some lively discussion.

First thing is an update on my last post. Yes I cleaned out the pantry although there is a pile on the kitchen bench of sweet treats my daughter has to deal with. Its mostly hers.
The kitchen benches and dinning table has been cleaned and use so many times they almost need another clearing after a big weekend of wedding sweets table and other paraphernalia that came into the house. So I will do a quick tidy of both of these before bed. Can you believe that I have been told which chocolate Easter Rabbit to get. I said NO chocolate but seems we have to have our Easter egg.

Table is tidy when I look at it, I must put the Christmas candle branch away although I do like it in winter as our christmas is hot. I need more candles which are hard to find in the correct size.

I have almost finished the warp ( one beautiful grand son always takes me away from the loom. I should be more disciplined),  so much has happen over the past few weeks I am not sure where the weeks went and what I did in that time. I am about to hit the loom for an hour before its to noisy for the neighbors as it is already 8.10pm.

So thoughts are now focused on the next thing to weave although I have some study to do at ANU and it involves machine embroidery. I do need to weave some blankets so if not a blanket warp I will have to get a least a scarf warp on the loom as its getting cold and everyone needs scarves in winter. Will keep you posted on how both progress.

Back to work and a busy 2015

Well Mel its that time of year and really time to get back into the swing. Today being Sunday I have to deal with my chores before another week starts. So it's clean the kitchen, clean the dinning table ( although looking at it most stuff is not mine for a change). Do floors and general tidy up and clean through out. 

Looking at my pantry it needs its yearly clear out as this year is the year of no food waste I have been putting this off, I should have done it before the end of 2014 so there is no guild about throwing anything out, and that's my problem I hate waste. 

I have told the girls no Easter chocolate as there is still last years in the pantry. 

Yuk what a mess!

Now for the good stuff, weaving! What is on your loom? This weeks challenge is to weave off what ever warp/s are on our looms and at least plan if not wind the next warp to go on and that has to be finished by the end of the month. Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes   This is going to be a busy month with my Uni project to do as well.

Last of the 50 mtr silk warp, although i am re thinking the 50 mt bit

There is way more felting wool warp left than silk ! 

Felting wool warp. now have to think what to do with all the left over wool warp?????
