It's been a while since I've woven and I figured going back to where the design started would be a great place to re-begin. Waves and Water was one of my first successful and weavable designs. I have a bunch of 20/2 tencel in white, some in yellow fleck, and some in browns that I've been staring at for a couple of years. I think that the yellow will be a beautiful compliment and should shimmer next to the stark white and of course the brown will be much more bold and warm. I've counted the ends...434 to be exact...and now I'm gearing up to warp the loom! I can't wait!
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
