Before I start another run of place mats, I wanted to try this treadling for the Star of Bethlehem. According to Dixon, this is Bound Weave. I have this towel warp that is threaded for the Star of Bethlehem. After the hem is woven, I weave 2" of plain weave, then do a band of overshot. The three towels I finished have been well received. But, I wanted to try something new with the band. This is in 5/2 perle cotton using two shades of green. I stopped at this point and took it out.
I tried again using some 3/2 perle cotton....this time in contrasting colors. I'm not too sure I like it, either.
I'm going to sleep on it and make that decision later.
Sadly, I'm sharing this picture of my lovely ornamental magnolias. They will probably be gone by Saturday morning due to this last blast of winter weather. It always seems like they bloom right before a freeze!!!! But, we have had a fantastic week here in East Tennessee, so I won't complain too much! It could always be worse!
Actually, I need to spend a day or two stuck inside so I can get everything ready for taxes. Funny how that works, huh?
I hope Spring has sprung where you are....
