All Done!

So Happy with this!

I finally finished my weaving project. I think it turned out quite nice. It was fun to explore some new weaving techniques and stitches! I used several different handspun yarns. This website has a lot of good ideas and I used several of them https://aprettyfix.com/5-wavy-weaving-techniques/

There were some problems I had to work out along the way. Definitely make sure you leave more room at the top and bottom of the project while on the loom. It takes more length of warp to tie things off then you think. So…don’t look at the back of the project…LOL…Messy! More learning there.

Here is a sneak peak at where I’m going with the next one. I like the striking looks of all natural color but am wondering about adding some color in the next one.

Fun & Funky!

I was on Pinterest this morning and came across this cool idea for a journal cover. It was from the blog post of Expression Fiber Arts. What a great way to use up small bits of wool, ribbons, and other scrap fibers and jewlery! I think this is my next project!
