Last day of June

Lots of colour and sunshine here during the last two weeks.
Watching the Belgian team playing at the world cup, one eye on the tv, the other one on my crochet...
A new warp on my loom, all bio cotton. The weft is cotton, paper, cottoline.
A couple of tentative small quilts up on my design board.
Machine-quilting my GD's quilt.
And, of course,  studying Japanese, reading and enjoying the beautiful weather in the garden.
I intend to keep more or less the same timetable in July.

Some news

This mosaic is a little summary of the last two weeks.
Weaving, quilting, crocheting, and enjoying the beautiful weather. The yarn I'm using for my crochet project is Tahiti by Schachenmayr. When I saw it in the shop, I just couldn't resist.

Yesterday, I finished the blue scrap quilt.
Although I intend to keep the vertical orientation, I think it also looks good like this...
I'm also done, at last, with my cottolin warp.
I tried several twill weaves and paid special attention to the selvedges. It's not too bad, I think.
Next time, I'd like to try floating selvedges to see how it works.
I washed the fabric. I still have to iron it and then to decide how to use it.
Probably some little pouches and also a couple of book covers, which means I will not see my carefully wowen selvedges anymore!
My loom is empty. For the next weaving project, I want to use the variegated paper yarn I bought in Kyoto a few years ago.
I've also got one or two quilt ideas percolating, but there's no hurry.
