Happy Easter!!!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your families on this special Holiday;) We spent the end of the day with my Mother's side of the family watching a movie called Marley and Me. I'm not much of a movie watcher but, this movie was wonderful!!! I came home and hugged my doggie;) A sure watch for everyone!

I would also like to thank everyone for leaving such wonderful comments on my scarves:) It's so inspiring to read all of your blogs and I really appreciate that you take the time to look at mine......and then leave such great comments. I get all buttered up and want to weave weave weave:) I honestly don't know what we would all do without the Internet.....I mean......it's so great to just browse others blogs and projects;) So, here is the second scarf....the same peg plan using a black weft.
And a close up of the detail.
Ok....I have a question.....I think we have all woven something that we are a little disappointed in, right? You get it off the loom, look at it, and then decide that there are a thousand things you could have done to make it better. With weaving, it's not like we can 'undo it' so.....what do you do with those pieces?

What to do with them? Well, some get made into small purses and other items. (that means cutting around the treadling errors!)

Another consideration is to think that what disapoints you, may delight another. Follow through and finish it and sell it to that person. Their expectations are different from yours. I've had this pointed out to me time and again and have learned to be flexible.
All the 'disapointments' are all gone onto new homes either as gifts or sold. Some become mine to wear or use as well... most of my tea towels in use are all seconds :)

Ahh, the eternal conundrum - I wish I there was a simple answer. I just keep trying to reinvent the fabric, but sometimes the only thing is to cut it up and make sample sheets for friends and guildmates!

Oh, this is rich with the black...
Hey, if you are disappointed in something, I have learned to give it to my Mom. She thinks everything I do is awesome.

Your scarves are beautiful!!

I know what you mean about being disappointed in a weaving project. Put it away for awhile and when you take it out you will view it with completely different eyes and may fall madly in love with it.

They're in a box and I keep thinking about turning them into handbags, but meanwhile the box gets heavier, not lighter.

I love, love love this pattern! Is it your own? & is it for a 16s? I have a 16s weavebird & I would love to weave a shawl with this pattern. Any suggestions or tips with this one?
Cheers
Shirley
