Memorial Day!!!

What Memorial Day means in my neck of the woods is all of the 'city people' come up to stay until Labor Day or so. My normally quiet town hustles and bustles and comes alive. People walk the main strip hitting the quaint stores that put Wurtsboro on the map. Really, it's a wonderful thing! Jeremiah was in a parade and was so funny to watch. He just waved his little flag all over the place and hasn't stopped talking about it since!

The Picnic Towels are off the loom and in the dryer as we speak! (.....yes....I know it's 12:13am! Call me crazy!) I ended up weaving four sets of two and each with a different pattern. I thought I had taken pictures of all of them but, this is the only one on the camera.....strange! I'll take better pictures tomorrow:)
And now for the Waves and Water series! I'm so excited about these shawls, they are finally coming into play and I'm really happy with the results!!! Here is the first one, with a black weft. In the picture it's slightly transparent so that pattern is a little difficult to see. Often times I weave at night and lighting is not always the best at that time to take pictures:)
This is the one I finished this evening with a purple weft.....the next one......a suprise;)

Your son is a real cutie patootie!

Your weaving is beautiful (as usual!) The shawls are going to make someone feel extra special wearing them.

That new loom seems to be agreeing with you :)

Lovely shawls!! :) And, hey, we are so on the same wavelength - I've got some pinwheels going right now on my Colonial, lol. :)

Nothing better than being in a parade - all the pomp and circumstance is so much fun for a child.
Love, love, love the shawl - you are really smokin' on that loom!

I enjoy the chance to see the difference results - both are lovely. I hope you will show them all when you finish the series. I'd like to see how each weft appears on the black warp - a mini lesson for me.
