First effort


The boys are helping me do a few things while they are here. One thing we did was clean some bookshelves, sort books, and put the oh-so-many children’s books on these easily accessible shelves. While sorting through a basket of stuff, I found snapshots of the first weft-face piece I ever wove. It was to be a saddle blanket for my father, dyed with cochineal and indigo. That blanket is now faded and well-worn, so I am glad to have this picture. I had never woven anything weft-faced before, so with this weaving, I fell in love with this type of weaving, and still am to this day.
