Trial sample modelled

A quick and dirty shot reflected in the mirror. 

I am much happier with this sampling than I was when it was on the loom.  Washing in very hot soapy water followed by hard pressing on a wooden board has resulted in a fabric that is delicate and drapes beautifully.  I now believe it will be very worthwhile to take my time to get the color decisions and the weaving right.

Yippee! Getting to see the plans come to fruition and feel the drape and color in your hands is got to be wonderful beyond words! Go for it!
