Summer Weaving - finished

Wide scarf/shawl - cotton Curley-Q & 5/2 twist

Hand-dyed silk scarf (kit)
A dear friend once told me that a blog post showing her art was, for her, the final step in creating the work. 
Long overdue, but finished.

Ready for the Holidays

A few months ago we received a request for a custom woven piece - our first commissioned work. Pretty heady stuff for a rag-tag bunch of museum volunteers. Our charter was to create a table runner for a rustic dining room table that was 103 inches long, plus some overhang & fringe. 

It came off the loom last week, we tied the fringe this morning and TaDa - it's done and ready for Thanksgiving (our target was for Christmas). 

A combination of two fabrics gave us nice cranberry reds with a hint of mint.

Neck Tie Rug Finished....

....about 3 months ago (bad blogger).

Anyway, the rug is wonderful and a topic of conversation around the museum (even made a guest appearance at the local Rotary Club meeting).
