Before I cut the warp I weave a couple of inches after the last rug. Insert a stick, weave a few more inches, insert second stick and again a few more inches of plain weave.
When I cut the rugs off I am left with this very sturdy edge to lash onto the front apron.
I fold the two sticks together and lash them on.
Here we are ready to weave again!
Now for the rugs. There are a couple of colorful fabric rugs. My favorite being this teal and orange.
Here is a close up of a blue and white print fabric rug, and the loopers with squares rug, which turned out way shorter than I thought it was going to be!
And finally the rugs
I had to get off the loom, the blue jean rugs.
These will all have to be cut apart and hemmed to be ready to go. I am always amazed at what a change in weft materials does to a warp. Hard to believe these all came off the same warp.
Dear Wally is sporting the cone of shame. He was neutered yesterday and has proved that he can not be trusted to leave that itsy bitsy incision alone. Poor thing!
That is all from my house, the bread cloths are on the loom, just need to work out some kinks, (as always, what is it about math I don't understand) and they will be ready to go. I haven't touched the vari blue/ black chenille warp yet, maybe I can get to it this afternoon.
My only full day of working upstairs in the studio without interruption is Friday. I also can count on Wednesday afternoon and again on Saturday morning. All the other days have other things going on. Once in awhile I can sneak up and get some stuff done, but not usually.
I love Fridays.
Happy Weaving, Tina
