Curtains finished at last.!

At long last I have found the time to make up the fabric I wove for the dining room curtains and have taken a few photos of them hung and a close up of the fabric.

I also have wet finished the fabric I wove for a friend for upholstering her bedroom chair and taken a photograph of that. It will be interesting to see the finished product when she has finished the chair. Hope it suits.

Now the fun of thinking up the next weaving project! So much on the list, where to start. lol

Spring Already!!

It is ages since have posted anything and time has just whizzed by. Xmas is long in the past and Spring seems to have arrived earlier than I can ever remember before. The sunny days go on and on and I even had to water the garden yesterday as the daffodils etc were wilting. That's a first! The outside temperature has been reaching 21degs by early afternoon, so I wonder what summer will bring.

Not a great deal of weaving has been accomplished as have had a rather sad few months being very preoccupied with a poorly dog who sadly passed over a couple of weeks ago. Connie was 13 and much loved and much missed but will always be in our heart.

I have on and off been weaving some fabric to upholster a bedroom chair, for a friend of mine. It seems to be going well now but have had more than my share of broken ends on one side which is a first and caused a headache. I used 20/2 tencel for the warp with 60/2 silk as the weft . The tencel seemd more fragile than I remember. Still nearly done now and I hope it turns out well. I have wet finished the fabric I wove for curtains and now need to find time to make them up.
