A really exciting show this week! It's our first time showing at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum near Chichester. It's a lovely site with so much history and I love it!!! We were there for the Food & Folk Festival and it was the first time taking the loom out into the field!
I'm really happy with how it all fits in, especially because the weather meant we couldn't spread outside of the gazebo. One of the most exciting bits was our visitors in the morning. The sun was shining, we were happy and a family of ducklings came to say hello! It made my day!
It was the first day of selling my scarves too! I'm so proud of them, and I was so pleased to sell my first one (and my favourite one). It was a lovely scarf made on the blue cotton warp, with a colour changing yarn for the weft that gave it a metallic look that shimmered in the light.
And it was the first day weaving on a new warp too! (I told you it was an exciting one). Before the show, I had measured out a warp of gray, pink and purple, and it's lovely! When you measure out a warp and put it in a bucket ready for winding on, it always looks like something. This one looked like Scottish heathland, all purple heather and gray skies. I love it!
