These are the towels I did in Linda Lincoln's Friendship towel exchange in March and May. The warp is 7/2 & 8/2 cotton, the ground weft is 10/2 on the red, but switched to 2/20 for the other two. The pattern weft is 5/2 with a 10/2 white ground (tabby).
Weaving Summer and Winter takes some concentration, and of course 2 shuttles. The treadling required paying close attention. The draft can be found in Handwoven - Jan/Feb 2015.

We use our Fiesta Ware every day, and I smile each time I see them stacked on the shelf or even lined up in the dishwasher. Inspired by the cheery colours, I wove a t-shirt rag rug for the kitchen. Rug dimensions are 21 x 34. T-shirt strips were 1/2" wide, 100% cotton (from an unexpected church thrift sale). Warp is Maysville 8/4 cotton.

This small project was full of "opportunities to do better" and "learning by doing." Numerous lessons aside, the rug feels good under my feet - and adds Fiesta Flare to the daily routine!

a different color weft.

This is a double width plain weave table cloth (about 58 x 122") and coordinating napkins  - all in Bockens lovely cotton - kind of retro - diner design.


I wanted to challenge myself with a warp that was made up of large blocks of colors from opposite sides of the color wheel.  The towels were woven of 8/2 cotton and cottolin warped at 18 EPI.  Some of the towels were woven as plain weave, others as a block damask.
