I’ve been weaving for 47 years and still feel like a dabbler.  I like to weave from stash and rarely purchase materials for a specific project. I prefer to try new things from magazines or books but remain most interested in simple techniques and color texture variations.

Multiple pieces were created for personal living space utilizing balance of warp after completing another wall hanging for home use.  Husband, Ken,  created the wooden frames to suspend weavings.  The large piece is in single frame with 3 separate weavings suspended similar to this piece, done on same warp and measures 32”x75”.

 

Inspiration was primarily to try different non tapestry techniques on simple twill threading of mixed brown/white warp with middle section of white warp. Testing to weave to size for frames.
