Learn to Weave Day 3, Twill is Queen!

"Shuttles are so elegant," Emma told me. I think that must be the kind of thing girls say when they are in "raptures". Strange, but interesting.

Yesterday was pure bliss for Emma. She skipped when she had to go ask a question and smiled and sang at her loom, "I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls with vassals and serfs at my side."

The beloved antique bobbin winder.

Can you chew gum and pat your head at the same time?

The elegant shuttle, with a cargo of pink thread.

After losing her place several times and having to take out her work, Emma found a pattern holder on an unused loom and borrowed it.

See the diamond pattern in the middle?

Emma's favorite, pink and purple together.
