First post

Hi Everyone, just trying this out so lets see how it goes.


The first weaving I did this year was to make some fabric for bathroom curtains. I wanted to be able to see through it, but not too well if you see what I mean, so I chose panels of plain and lace weave alternating and made it from a linen warp and a cotton and linen weft. This was my first play with linen so interesting.
Here is a pic of it on the loom.










Here it is wet finished prior to sewing









And finally the end product. Quite pleased with this first attempt, will certainly try more similar I think.
