Sampler

Ok, so I put the rug aside for now. I decided to get back to my goal of learning from the Collingwood book so I'm going to do a sampler. The book is pretty good, except sometimes you have to do a little translation from the British, but not too bad. So far I've practiced the cross stripes and pick and pick. I love the way the pick and pick looks! I'm also throwing some twill in between the sample sections for good measure. Here's another view...


This afternoon I'll work on doing spots.

Isn't this a cool ficus? I took the picture at the park this morning at our outdoor painters group get together. We usually paint or draw every Sunday morning. I have a ficus fetish lately. Thought maybe I'd try to do this one as another charcoal.

OOO your weaving looks great! Can't wait to see more! What do you think of the Schacht cricket loom? I'm thinking of getting one.

I know people on the Weavolution site that have one, and everyone seems to like them. I have an Ashford rigid heddle, 32". I really like mine. You could sign up for Weavolution and go on the rigid heddle group and ask around.
