slow weaving

February 3, 2012

Mother said patience is a virtue…

still a way to go before they’re finished

 

 

it’s a little like tapestry weaving, colour mixing is fun and you have your fingers in the warp.

 

they get trimmed and finished with bias binding

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

half the wefts are thrums and half rags

and now to the sewing machine

    They are really gorgeous. It will be lovely to use them. I think handmade objects add intrinsic worth and awareness to everyday activities, however humble. I was given a couple of handwoven tea towels last fall, and I love using them and think of their maker every time I pick one up.

      many of my students get hooked on tea towels, for years I wove them instead of samples and use them every day.
