I was so eager to start weaving this morning that it almost, ALMOST slipped my mind that I told the girls that they could go skating today at the Oval. Good thing they were up to remind me!! It was a beautiful day to spend with the family outdoors. They had so much fun skating with their dad; I wished that I could go to but that will have to wait for another day. I was just happy to be with them. After lupper (lunch + supper because we didn't eat lunch until 4pm) we headed home and I set to work at the loom. I have to pace myself so I don't overdo it right now but I was so happy to feel productive again and so grateful to Ian for understanding my frustrations so much that he was willing to put the loom in the middle of the living room for now. Even the girls aren't complaining...I guess they understand that a happy mom makes for a happy family! haha
Here is a little sneak peak at what my towels look like....

I had originally planned on throwing in a stripe of colour or two but, I don't know, there is just something beautiful about a pure white towel on a loom. Next time I will do some striped towels.
