Saori Weaving challenge! Weave a yard a day for 30 days

 Misa Jo the founder of Saori weaving says " weave every day"
annually I like to challenge my self to do just that !  I wove a yard a day for 30 days.
I started on Jan 10, and finished on Feb 11th. I finished the full 30 yards but could not stand to have that last yard left on the loom so on day 31 I wove off the last yard. so 31 yards in 31 days!
Day one I started weaving my  ( go here to see more on this warp ) indigo natural dyed warp past blog info click here  hand dyed indigo  warp

 I loved weaving on my Saori CH60 loom the full 12 yards  that i wove  fit on  the cloth beam beautifully

 with 12 yard woven in 12 days I started weaving  on my second step of my challange on my Saori piccolo loom

  A very different color approach  happy folk art colors

 lots of sakiori  fabric strips I cut with my sharp excellent Ginger spring loader 8" shears here

 with the Second warp done and 7 yards woven!( The little round disks are tags I  use with coil less safety pins for making my progress in increments along the way) I needed to wind a new warp 
 My 3rd warp ... 14 yard warp just freshly wound 

  and the weaving begins
first yard woven  and then… subsequent days followed

  and I have reached my 30 yards …..BUT  WAIT  I want  finish that  last yard  sooooo I wove tabs….
