Hard to believe that over a week ago I was taking my second workshop from  Rosalie Neilson.

Rosalie Neilson's program for Contemporary Handweavers of Houston Guild meeting, Oct. 2015

We have set up our looms to weave  tables runners. There will be enough warp to weave 11 different motifs. I plan to do 2 table runners, not one long one.

Tied on and ready to weave.

Rosalie teaches a new method of designing for rep weave Her tools and techniques can be applied to other block weaves. With my 8 shaft loom I have 4 blocks available for designing. There are a mind boggling 1,024 possibilities of combinations. ( There is a future book that Rosalie will publish on these design techniques. One of these will definitely find it’s way into my weaving library.)

My color scheme was inspired by pumpkins. Two motifs down and 9 to go!
