A Good Day To Be Together!
We were working with a small group today, but we took some time to do some problem solving and admire work done over the last week.
Pat brought one of her rugs woven with the nylon as the warp. She had woven in the fringe at the edge of the rug rather than knotting the fringes. She used fabric, as well as the nylon, for the weft. It did give the rug a nice, clean edge.
Ann brought her scarf with the knitting ribbon insert. There were lots of suggestions for different ways to use the ribbon. With all the creativity in our group, Ann will have lots of options with the scarf.
Ms. Ila knitted LONG before she started weaving, so she had a lot of great suggestions.
Tina brought her mug rugs and got them tagged and ready to join the stash for the Foothills show. We've got 73 days to get ready!!!!
She is almost to the end of her placemat warp at the Center, also!!! More items for the stash!!!!
Carol was busy cutting more strips for Ann's rug on the barn loom. They even went out to the Annex looking for more fabric to use on that warp.
Carl got weaving time in today, also. Those rugs are looking great!
Allan's placemats are looking fantastic with the fabric strips he prepared. And, this man can hemstitch!!!!
A big thank you to his wife, Sharon, for making us bread to nibble on this morning....it was yummy!
I finished off my last scarf, and had some warp leftover (but not enough for another scarf.) I found a ball of cut, small gingham, and I'm finishing off that warp with mug rugs. You can never have too many!!!!
