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.

Damask....Ah Ha Moment....Now Taquete?

Ok . So since the weather has been changing, I now have some more obvious time to 'play' with some designs that I have stored in my head:) Damask, in particular, has been a favorite of mine to look at and I really feel the urge to use my loom to create tapestry like scarves and shawls. I don't want anything too heavy as I really like the feel of tencel , bamboo, and I would eventually like to switch to silk for my finer works. I am still in the learning stage though and I hope to always remain in the learning stage. The damask pattern that I have been toying with, I like but, I lose a lot of detail the more I stretched it out. I was a little frustrated but, certain that there was something that I could do. The picture above is a little small but, the piece all the way to the right is a 4 point twill threading, the middle is a 5 point twill threading, and the one on the far left is a 6 point twill threading. To get a true satin/sateen I would have to use the one on the far

Pine cones, Gingerbread Men, Maple Leaves, ?

I was asked if I can weave pine cones onto towels by a very influential woman of God in my life. Of course, I said "Yeah! Sure!". Knowing full well that with a little bit of research and effort, I would be able to weave just about any image out there with a 3/1 twill. Well, I think I have what I'm looking for. These are screen shots of the front and back of the image. So....I was wondering.......what do you think? Does it look like a pine cone ? I have the loom beamed, as of last night, in a point twill 1-32 and am planning on a natural cotton with a band on either side of the towel with a strip of pine cones . Since I put enough on the loom for four sets of two, I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and make my mother-in-law a set of gingerbread men towels for her kitchen. She's a little obsessed with gingerbread men....it's her kitchen theme that has spilled into the dinning room and living room :) Gotta love her!!! That leaves (ha ha ha sounds lik

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?
