I have spent the morning going through my carefully annotated sampling. Originally I had thought I was going to be working next with the last group of samples I had woven with gold as the background weft. I had thought I was going to work with the ideas there, but using a painted warp.
As I continued working with the samples my eyes kept returning to one of the earlier samples—the sample in the photo. I did some re-analyzing. In the process my imagination started working on what I would do with the threading to make a wider piece.
Then I figured out two things:
- I am ready to weave a major piece
- I should begin with a smaller trial piece to explore how to use warp painting.
- I will do the major piece first.
So now I am happily busy working the design out.
But I must not forget the towels for our daughter……
