All Is right with the Loom (today:o)

Front view of the loom , warp all tied up :o)
All is well that ends well, or should I say all my ends are well :o)  (just being a smart A**
It took me all of yesterday and most of the evening ..to get it this way. Plus finishing up this morning after starting off with Laundry..Don't sometimes you hate doing laundry :o(
Even with more than enough mentionables, it has to be done. Thank goodness for the machines of today..I don't know what I would do if I had to boil water and wash outside in those iron pots..no wonder
people had B.O in those days.
Back of loom all neatly tied in..this is what it's supposed to look like , and the new method wasn't too bad , just had to double up on the sleying the reed..( Robin, that means putting the yarn ends into the slots (in the front of the loom) then tying it to the front beam ( Robin, where you see it tied :o).
This view shows the back beam ,,(yarn ends all going through the heddles onto the Back beam) Monday and all so far is well :o) and I'm feeling better and the loom looks good.:o)
   






UPDATE: 
I just had to stop, show and thank Laura Fry
for her suggestion on getting started without
using the toilet paper or rags .. Here is the 
 results of paying attention..:o) I'm smiling from ear to ear  ...I hate using rags and toilet paper..it takes so long to get it where you can start to weave even, and wastes so much of your beginning weave.
