Bran-doodle-new

So I went for a new layout:) What do you think? I was thinking this was much brighter and cheerier than the last! Perfect for this fabulous 90 degree weather that we've been having as well!!! I've promised myself that this is a time to 'kick it up a notch' so, I've really been on the ball with pictures and updating......at least compared to how I've lacked recently:)


Since the weather was nice, I was able to get some pictures taken outside in the fabulous bright sun!!! I just love this time of year and am one of those people that just can't sweat enough. Honestly, I should live in the Amazon:) So, here is the beginning results of pictures......next time I'll charge the battery BEFORE. Nothing like planning head;)


Plaited twill echo weave. Yellow and orange warp, blue weft.

Rust water spots!!!!!!!!!


Waves and water with a key lime weft! I just love this one in the sun!


Basket weave towels in burnt orange and natural!

These above items will be available on Etsy soon:)


Finally here is what is on the Compact loom (Kip). A set of rep weave runners for my friend Lynn. She has a house to die for......honestly, the moment you step in you are greeted with Southern style hospitality (even though she's a NYC gal) and art covers the place like a blanket of fresh snow. She's a fabulous potter and has a personality that's so infectious that you can't help but drive home only to 'create':)

This is my first bout with rep weave. So far okay.....I wasn't thrilled about beaming the warp, the sett is 30 with 3/2 cotton!!! ;) I can do this......I can do this!!!! ;)

Happy summer!!!

Wow doesn't even begin to cover it! I love, love, love the plaited twill echo weave scarf! Seems I've got some figuring out to do... Echo Weave is a real passion with me and I hadn't thought to try it with a true twill weave structure.

I love what you did to your blog! The live traffic thing is the bomb! I'll have to add that to mine. Love your latest weaving exploits and I have my eye on one of your handspuns in your Etsy shoppe. ;)
