Table linens rocking right along. With a suggestion from the younger daughter, I decided to pair the 8/8 taupe weft for the place mats with 8/2 black weft for the napkins. She’s brilliant! Hope the bride-to-be agrees. #feistyhandwovens #macomberloom #macomber #handwoven #handweaving #weaversofinstagram #handweaversofinstagram
Okay, last one today. Everything is set up and ready to load the warp beam tomorrow! Night. Night.
The cloth beam is filling up! Almost done. The two mats throw things off, as their thick weft made them so much wider, but it’s all good!
Twelve yards and two halves of the same warp ready to go, despite miles of warp already on both looms, which is a nice problem to have. (Michele, your warp is up next, so don’t get excited. 😂)
Duck, duck, GOOSE! After several baby blankets in different cotton chenilles, I got a little wild with my goose and decided to shake things up a bit. Last year, I made a couple hundred yards of bias tape in a few different fabrics. Tonight, I used them as weft for a small mat the younger daughter has already claimed for her bath. Bonus!
Back to the baby blankets in 8/4 cotton. This time with some plain weave and pin stripes in teal and brown.
Melissa and her “new” 1960 Macomber 32” loom! I am now down to two Macombers, but neither of them are going anywhere. @doxiegirl #feistyhandwovens #macomberloom #handwoven #handweaving #weaversofinstagram #handweaversofinstagram
This just arrived from Camilla Valley Farm! Paired with black and slate grey, which are already in my stash, these will make linens for a November bride!!
That’s better! I could not go to bed unless I changed the tie-ups. The top is the right side of the fabric. Yay!
