September was one of those months that just seemed to fly by! We've taken plenty of day trips around
Vancouver Island as well as a longer trip ‘off the rock’
to the Interior of BC to visit family, so weaving has taken a bit of a back burner.
Although I've not been blogging, I have been weaving in fits and starts. Mid month I put on a warp in lovely rich rust and brown. I used two different colours of brown and a deep russet colour which I pulled together and randomly threaded through the heddles.
The warp is 24 inches wide and 100 inches long and I plan to make a hemmed shawl. I chose to use an undulating twill pattern to enhance the fabrics drape and the random colour breaks really add interest to the pattern.
The buttons came in 10 days beautifully packaged! These buttons cannot be found in local shops and that’s for sure! I added a few exta buttons to my order for a raw silk blouse that I plan on sewing soon.
I've just started weaving one of the silk scarves that I painted in August….this one is purple and turquoise and I've chosen Azure for the weft. This will be a polka dot scarf ~ a pattern that I go back to time and again….I love it!
