Today was the last day of weaving at the Knoxville Museum of Art on the Wind, Rewind, Weave project. Carol, Carl, Pat and I were honored to get to weave today. When Carl and I arrived, we could hear the familiar sounds of Carol's weaving from the lobby....she doesn't miss a beat! There is a lot of cloth wound up on the cloth beam from the last few weeks of weavers, and the colors are just incredible.
As I wove today, a lot of school groups stopped by. These were mainly older students and it got a little noisy as they wound their bobbins. We also had some families that were passing through Knoxville and stopped to take in the exhibit. There was a real air of excitement as I wove. Once again I was drawn to warm, sunny colors. While I wove, Carl got a chance to take a closer look at some of the books in the book room. Then we switched places and I read while he wove. Some of the museum staff wandered into the book room and we talked about the exhibit and just being part of this wonderful project.
Pat arrived to finish up the day of weaving. As she was getting her materials together, we were joined by Tommye Scanlin. She will be the weaver with the responsibility of cutting off the warp tomorrow. Tommye has been such an active part of this exhibit, and it was a great pleasure to meet her in person.
So, I'm wiping my eyes, and saying "farewell." It's been fun.............
