Photo in blog title

Jane asked about the weaving behind the blog title.

I used Venne cotton yarn in green and yellow and a variegated green/yellow as warp
and as weft a variegated green/yellow and a green silk yarn from Bart & Francis together with the warp yarns.
The pattern came from PCW Fiberworks, a 16 shaft called tumbling blocks.
On one side the blocks show the warp yarns and on the reverse the blocks show the weft yarns.
That's why I like this draft, I've used it for other projects too.
Here, above and under, the weft yarn was Noro Kureyon with a striped warp in plain colours.

Woven Picture

Not weaving myself just now but I'll soon be the recipient of a woven picture by Sandra Rude
Looking forward to this, as I've been waiting patiently.
Sandra works wonders, first on her computer to get the shades right and next the weaving itself.

I have several option as to what I want to weave next but not yet made up my mind.

It's Autumn but the weather stays warmer than usual.
Today I found the first snowdrop in the garden! Usually it's Christmas time before I see the first one.
I was planting some bulbs when I found the flower.
When in the garden centre this week I came across this plant and just had to take it home with me....
 Never seen this colour before, it's called Royal Blue.
