loose ends

January 5, 2016

tidying up those endless loose ends

P1080153finished spinning the tussah silk

starting the flax – 2 ply, for a warp

P1080157weaving is progressing if a bit slowly

P1080159the towels are hemmed

washed and drier dried – the linen created an incredible amount of lint

P1080162this was a leftover piece of fabric

woven, several years ago, with a mixture of handspun wool and mohair

 it was a not very successful felting experiment

so ended up in the bottom of a pile (sound familiar?)

now it is a new cushion for the driver’s seat of my car

(yup! I’m a wee bit lacking in height)

the pillow insert was an old pillow case cut down and stuffed with left-over filling

I can see clearly now!

it is very satisfying using up bits and pieces

    You are always on the go, making new things. I think the towels look extra nice but, then, I was a well-known soft spot for towels!

      Kerry – the weave structure gives a very textured, absorbent towel and with the linen warp they should be nice to use.

    car cushions are my favorite! i did that last year with buckwheat hulls from a korean pillow that was too fat for my head: removed some for a tiny pillow. later, i realized it was the perfect size for the small of my back in the car.

      Aimee – I love buckwheat hull pillows. My back is ok in the car, I just need to be a little higher in the seat.
