Spring or Autumn in May?

Not much progress on the warp. This is how the loom looks at the moment:
I was not happy with the edges and I'm still thinking about how I shall change it. There should be enough warp for a scarf. When warping the loom I should have thought about the edges more clearly and warped the black threads. At the moment I have 6 extra threads (black, like the weft) put together in 1 cannister. I will hang them all independent from each other and may be add a few more.
But the sample has come out well after washing and pressing.
I made this:
Showing front and back. I cut the sample so that I could use both sides of the cloth. Added a invincible zipper, something I had not done before. Happy with the end result. Though I had to unpick the first attempt as I got it wrong.
Weather is so dismal, almost end of May and I can count on 1 hand the days I've been able to sit and enjoy a meal in the garden. This week temperature will go as low as 9C when it should be nearer 20.
Above some tulips that I planted just before Christmas. Glad they did come up ok.
Below a close-up as to how different they all are:
A few more photos of the garden at this moment:
Found some mushrooms in the garden, is it all the rain we have been having lately?
Though we are very lucky to have no tornado's here. So sad to see what is happening on the other side of the world.


  1. Je hebt wel een prachtige tuin al ziet het er nog niet erg lente achtig uit. Moet vast fijn zijn om in te vertoefen.

    Die zelfkanten blijven toch een doffe ellende, maar je weefsel moet vast heel erg mooi worden als ik je proef bekijk. Echt heel mooi.

  2. your garden looks so lush, good match for
    your pillows

  3. Such beautiful cushions, and your garden is also a work of art.

  4. Marion, Neki and Alice,
    thanks for the nice comments.
    The pillows in fact is only one, with 2 different sides. :-)
