Bits and pieces

Began weaving another color way using the same turned twill setup for the previous  coral towels. These are probably my favorite colors to weave with. I just love a bright blue (royal blue).  These will be made with 22/2 cottolin, from my stash. Alas, there is very little of the purple and turquoise remaining after warping.

Attended “Craft Texas 2014” at the Houston Center For Contemporary Craft, on Saturday. This piece saddened but delighted me that an artistic use was found for some thing I use regularly to create art. The artist used two shafts or harnesses from a loom and numerous heddles which would normally hold the individual warp ends on a shaft to create this work of art.

It’s getting harder and harder to walk at night with the sun beginning to set at 7:15pm  central time here in Texas. I’ll have to come up with a different time / place to walk soon.

  2. The art work made from the loom pieces is very evocative–thanks for showing it! Your towels look great–I need to find time to wind some warp so I can get started!

  4. Your colors are great!! The wall art is interesting….. were the heddles woven into place or are they glued?
