James Koehler’s book

Because of a family visit, I probably won’t be posting for a couple of weeks. Busy visiting. Right now? You know, the housework stuff that needs to be done. My favorite thing.

A weaving world update: I cut the piece off the loom; it’s basking on the floor as we speak. I’m not totally sure about it yet. Seems a bit plain. Maybe some embellishment? This piece is wide and kind of narrow. I will be trying out a new hemming method that I read about in James Koehler’s book Woven Color. We’ll see how that works out, but not for a couple of weeks. Plus, I am finally stitching those weather pieces to linen, which I will glue to a canvas–the linen, not the weaving. Afterwards, I think I’ll put them in painted frames for a bit of color. By the way, I Googled Woven Color to find a wonderful page of brightly colored pictures. The book is available on Amazon.
