weaving tea towels for the Studio Tour on April 26-27th
my Fiberworks PCW is not working on the new computer yet so I just rushed on
bad idea, I added extra threads on the edges to make a nice selvedge – but – it creates a long weft skip on the back
guess this towel is mine, when it is finished I’ll cut off and correct the mistake
weft is blue and green 2 ply hemp with linen tabby thread
I choose this pattern because the colour is in the weft so each towel can be different
I’ve also done something strange to the camera and the pictures are compressed – yikes!!
o.k. – managed to fix that problem
I’ve also added pages of velum, graph paper and “Arches, text wave” which can be used with water-colour pencils and a light wash
maybe I’ll make my version of a button blanket?
the book is Robes of Power – Totem Poles on Cloth by Doreen Jensen and Polly Sargent
now, enough of the electronics
I’m off to start my income tax – then there will be hysterics.
