I know someone who sews drapery for others. She ends up with the bits of fabric that are left over after sewing the items for people. In an attempt to find some space in her studio, she gave me some boxes of things she wasn't needing anymore.
We get donations off and on and love to go through it. This one was a treasure mine of interesting things. Our job is to make sure that the fabrics go to someone who will use and enjoy it. Nothing like opening a box, not knowing what's in it, and then just being totally inspired to try something new or figure out a way to show off a piece of fabric that isn't wanted for its original purpose but still has so much potential. The fun is trying to figure out how to make it all work out, especially if the piece of fabric isn't quite big enough or wide enough for what you had thought of using it for. Might have to add a bit or change something to make it work.
Now, too, it's crunch time for making gifts for Christmas. I have a loom with a warp on it for handtowels. That warp's been on there for a long time. My goal is to weave on it this week so I can post some pictures of it next Monday. Those handtowels are slated to be gifts for friends and family for Christmas!! Two looms have placemats on them right now. The other goal for me is to have the warps at least partly woven on by next week so I can take pictures to post of them as well!!
Guess I'll be busy!!
Until next week, keep weaving.
