Hand dyed getting to the loom, and packing

Included in my last batch of "Lola" HDT was some prepared warp of size 5 pearl cotton. I'm combining the hand painted warp along with white for my weaving project. The photos show the yarn ends being sleyed through the reed, then being threaded through the heddles. (I'm warping from front to back). This is as far as the weaving project has come.
Other things I'm doing include packing a box for Palmetto's Tat Days. No, I can't make the trip myself, but some of my HDT is going! It will be available in the Tat Days vending room, and arrangements have been made with the Palmetto Tatting Guild to do the selling for me.
Don't worry, my Etsy Shop will remain open and stocked during Tat Days - I dyed some extra thread for that event.

Must get back to winding skeins for Sugar Maple!

Ooh, it is so intriguing to see you winding a warp using HDTs. I look forward to updates on how this is going. (That's me, living vicariously through other people's weaving. LOL!)

Thanks for sharing your weaving adventure as well as news of your HDT going "on the road" and the Sugar Maple teaser.

In the words of Inigo Montoya, "I hate waiting..." *grins*

Just one more reason I'm excited to go to palmetto tat days.
Thanks for sending a package to
Palmetto, because you can never have enough HDT.

Wow! This looks so complicated to me- I can't even imagine. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Is there anything that you can't do? lol! Simply amazing!

Thanks so much, everyone!

Well, it seems that I just can't know when enough is enough already - LOL! It's my own fault when I run out of time for everything.

I just had a gander at Sugar Maple. It is just gorgeous! I wish I could tat faster, as my stash is growing more quickly than my shuttle can tat!
