New, Two

Ikat painted silk being wovenThis is the second piece on the "new" warp I'm weaving up. I completed the first piece this morning -- a painted silk warp of watery greens and teals woven with an olive green tencel weft, which I'll show you when I've taken it off the loom. This piece, here, is a recreational weaving piece, meaning I'm planning to hold on to it and am merely weaving it for the pleasure of making something beautiful to hang in my home. The weft here is a black 20/2 silk I dyed over the weekend. The photo doesn't do it justice.

Today I've been weaving, nothing else fiber related. It's one of those days when my motivation isn't up to my personal standard, but I'm getting stuff done nonetheless. Working myself up for more later this week.

I always know it's good when I drool, and I am;-)

Thanks, Peg, Marie & Bonnie, for your kind comments. This is weaving up quickly so I should be finished by the end of the week.
