If I failed to mention in the May Pattern Weaving Posts that the WARP is (white vertical threads) 8 yards long...then I'm telling you now...and WOW...that makes for a lot of weaving! It's all good though! I have been able to complete the entire 16 pattern sequences of the Rose Path Sampler Project and still have at least 3 maybe 4 yards of warp left.
So 'Charting' it all out and focusing on numbers and rows is good for the brain...or so they say for anyone, but especially for Seniors.
Wow, that's a category my brain is still wrapping it's self around. Still....glad to be able to say I fit that saying...It's never to late to learn new things or the old dog...new tricks thingy.
It's a good thing that my loom only has 6 treadles. Some have as many as 8 and 12....to much math for me...right now at least.
So, another new thingy for me is the 'Boat Shuttle'. I ordered 3...red, blue and yellow. That's it there on the loom with purple yarn on the bobbin. What a difference it makes in speed and tension. Right tools....ya know!
This Pattern gets a BIG STAR marked on it for future use.
It's been my favorite in this Sampler Series....well one of my favs!
Happy June, Ya'll.
AtoZ Challenge) in pattern weaving. As usual with something new to me, the OverDoSue is creeping in with the need to search and sort through pattern books and so far just about every 4 Shaft 6 Treadle Pattern Draft on Pinterest. OMG there are so many!
I truly am trying to 'Keep Calm and Weave On'!
In time...it will not seem so 'OverDoSueness'...I hope!
Okay, one 'Look Back' cause I can't remember if I've bragged about how much I LOVE my new studio at The Chicken Farm Art Center. Shoot, after the April Challenge, I don't remember if I posted about moving from Studio 14 to Studio 10. Surely, I did, but just in case the picture above pretty much sums up the 'Several Reasons' I've been an absent blogger until now...the 'Middle of May'.
I must admit....I've been somewhat of a 'Basket Case'. Not only upping my studio work with fiber and fabric, but adding three mornings a week shuffling paper on and off the computer. We use to call that 'Office Flunky'...but these days it's 'Media Manager'. At any rate, my second job is only a few steps away from Studio 10 to the Chicken Farm's Main Studio Office.
We will see!
After all, one can only do so much 'Media Management'.
