I didn't realize just how much I love and missed my trusty Nikon Coolpix P5100! Although they no longer make this model (isn't it always the way), I found one on-line for less than I paid for it a year ago. My new camera arrived yesterday! I am a happy camper.
While I was waiting for the camera's arrival, I finished dressing the loom for the blessing baby blanket.
And finished winding the warp for another series of lavender sachets I will be selling at the upcoming Seattle Weavers Guild Sale in October.
I finally figured out why I like setting up the loom so much. It is always a complete surprise to see what the warp is going to look like. I don't have to wait until I begin weaving. I don't even have to wait until I thread it through the reed. Just a few minutes into the raddle, a quick lashing onto the bar and voila!
If I weren't planning to cut this warp into lots of 5" squares, I might have paid more attention to the overall look of the piece, but I am rather charmed by the carefree look of it.
