what a tangled web we weave

I was reminded of a quotation that my Mother once wrote down in my little blue autograph book that I had in the sixties. Why she chose this particular quote I have no idea, but it certainly came to mind this weekend.

"What a tangled web we weave, when we learn how to to deceive".

Now I wasn't planning on any great deception this weekend, but I certainly got myself in a big tangled web!

It took many hours of untangling this mess, but got there in the end.

So I now have the fun part of weaving it into a blanket.I have my measurements right this time and it will be 58'' wide when off the loom. The wool colours are rather Christmassy don't you think?

I had a dramatic flowering happening in my kitchen yesterday, so had to post a picture of this beautiful amaryliss

This is bringing a lot of delight and pleasure...I wonder how long the flower will last?

I love the colors in the warp. It looks pretty just as it is, but I am looking forward to seeing it worked up. The flower is a wonderful sight, how beautiful.
