Hello, friends. Happy Monday to you. We had some "wicked severe storms" here in New England yesterday. We were fortunate that the power stayed on at our house.
I am tickled pink with the outcome of one of my first efforts in designing my own overshot weaving pattern. I used a technique called "namedrafting." In namedrafting, you take a name or a combination of names, assign each letter in that name a shaft on the loom, and develop a "code" to generate your weaving pattern. This particular draft was made using two first names (I'm not telling you whose names they are, because I was asked to weave this item for an anniversary gift). I'm going to be running with this idea a bit in my shop on a custom order basis. I hope you'll tell me what you think! Here is a picture of the table runner in process on the loom:
It is lovely to see something come together on the loom. It never really looks quite the same on graphing paper.
My garden needs to be inspected for storm damage. There are a few foxglove casualties, which is always annoying.
Have a lovely day.
Be well, Kate
