Two new "Starts"

While I have not finished another notebook cover, I have one well underway. This is another horse embroidery with some hand dyed fabric and lots of free motion quilting.
I am taking Christina Cameli's newest class on Craftsy - Quilting the Grid. I used this to quilt the small squares.  Plus I used some of the quilting motifs from the class to quilt a lot of the rest of this. Right now the class is on sale for only $19.99.  Or if you prefer to start with her first class, it is Free Motion Quilting Essentials and is on sale for $17.87 during the current sale.  Lots of other classes and supplies are on sale right now at Craftsy.

The other start is on my loom. It was empty - so I decided to join the Three Random Color weave-along.   I pulled the colors "crimson, pale goldenrod, and beige."   Now these are not my typical palette for anything - so this will be a challenge.  But challenges make us grow- right?   I gather cones of weaving yarns in the colors - or as close as I could manage from my stash.
I wound the warp and got it on my loom. 
(The warp threads are those that run the length of the fabric)  Then I filled a bobbin with one of the reds and wove a bit to see how it was looking.
I think I am going to like it!

That's already pretty! "Three Random Colors" - I'll bet most any combination would work - or at least it would be fun to see it they do - ;))

I just love seeing your weaving process and the beauty of the threads on the loom...just awesome.
