Some New Stuff In The Store This Week

     It was finally nice enough outside to take some pictures!  It was mid 60’s on Thursday when I took these pictures and then it snowed on and off all day Saturday!  I’m trying to play with lighting inside but have been finding that natural sunlight is the only way to go.  Without further ado...

This first scarf is an alpaca silk blend in light and dark brown, green, white, and black lines separating the squares.  


This one is the same fiber content with the plaid sections on either end with a long area of white in the center which shows as long stripes.


Again, same fiber content (same run, in fact) but this time I just went with a solid white in the weft.  The result is long stripes of dark and light brown, green, and white.  Just above the fringe, I put just a few rows in of color for a little variation. 


How about some towels?  These are the ones in the last post.  Black and cream in a checker type pattern using 3/2 mercerized cotton.


I’ve had this super bulky cotton chenille for quite some time and whipped up a run in a sandy beige and sage’ish’ seafoam’ish’ green.


Using the same cotton chenille, this one is woven with a solid weft in the sandy color.


This one I wove with a solid green weft.  This chenille is super soft and heavy, sure to be warm and soft next to the neck on chilly days.


I love weaving with Tencel!  The pattern in this scarf is an echo weave pattern I designed and just love the way it comes out.  I used an A-B color combination in the warp and echoed the weft pattern to highlight the diamonds in a black silk.  


Using the same pattern, this one has a silver weft in tencel. 


This one is my favorite.  I used a key lime green silk in the weft and the way this one shows the different colors in the warp in the light is just breathtaking!  It gives a blue sheen...LOVE it!   


My rainbow towels sell really well and I had a ton of 3/2 in various colors so why not throw another run on, right?  Gosh I love how bright they are in the sunshine!


Lastly, I wove some towels in 10/2 mercerized cotton in green squares highlighted with a yellow border in a huck lace pattern.  I may play with this pattern again.  I was surprised at how quickly they wove up.  I’ll be posting about the process on these next.


Ok.  So the question looms (pun intended)...where are they listed?!  I spent a good portion of this morning cropping and adjusting photos and getting descriptions together for my Etsy handwoven shop.  One item will be listed each day over the next week and will be available by clicking here.

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

I Guess That's Just Life

I will be posting again soon. I'm in the midst of a move. Sometimes the choices we make in life don't turn out as planned......or don't turn out at all. I have come to the hard decision that leaving my current residence and moving to an apartment with my son (and two cats) is best for our family. The past six years have been fairly difficult and the last two have been slightly overbearing. I think I'm writing all of this here because I feel that the stress I have been feeling has prevented me from being as productive as I can be. Some people are good 'under pressure' but, I find that I am about the worst 'under pressure'. I have been searching for a new place for about six months and finally came across something within reasonable distance from my sub job with the Post Office, cleaning jobs, and family. There is plenty of room for Jeremiah, myself, and (of course) my two looms:) One of which I will ecstatically set up in the living room area!

March!

I would like to thank EVERYONE for your kind words and thoughts and prayers and blessings;) Jeremiah and I are doing fabulous at our new location...........as the wrinkles of life get their due ironing, I'm finding my place and trying my hardest to settle in with the new adjustments. I've found one thing for sure........I have 'free time' or rather, time to work, where I didn't have it before. :) As the last bits of snow fall from the sky this morning, I had some time to work on some new draft ideas............and I am liking the results for sure:) I'm going to commit to working on my COE ......I just have to send away for the info.............I've never been so inspired in all my life to create..............woo! Weavecast (I'm like two years behind on episodes:) has a wonderful episode featuring information on completing a COE and the one thing I heard over and over was that most of the weavers wished that they would have used the COE process to lea
