Finishing

Finishing I have experimented with every recommended finishing technique around and still don’t have one that I’m entirely happy with. I decided, that since the pieces that I’m working on now are small and will never be used as rugs, that I would hem them. Don’t like it! Just don’t like the way they look. So, back to needle-weaving the ends back into the body of the piece for the next pieces. One part of the finishing that I am happy with is weaving the warp before either needle-weaving or hemming. That technique is in Collingwood’s book, page 498. I use 5-7 warp ends at a time—have done it with 3, but not with total success. The above is a phone picture, so usual caveat—not a great picture.

I am not going to complain about the weather. I am not going to complain about the weather. I am not going to complain about the weather. It is cold and dreary here, but so many people have it worse with feet of snow. And it’s hard for me to comprehend having to worry about roofs collapsing from snow. And digging out your car, much less driving it in all that snow. At least we saw the sun here yesterday! They say we may get some of that white stuff tomorrow, but probably not much. Keeping the fingers crossed!

Back to steaming, pressing, hemming…
