I finally got my hand woven ruanas finished and photographed.
I have a batch of fall themed warp-painted and hand woven cotton ruanas finally done! Earlier this summer, I went on a week long camping trip with my historical recreation group. We were up in the mountains of Arizona, ...

Here's a blog entry on the wrap up of the last weaving project I did. It was 11 1/2 yards of a light cotton fabric for garb.

Juggling balls, after felting. I am always amazed at the transformation! After the application of hot water, dish soap, and lots of elbow grease, the wool has velcroed itself together into a seamless coating over the golf balls. For a final hard finish, I toss the felted balls into the dryer to bounce around for about a half an hour. Warning: this last part of the process is Very Noisy.

Pity! I could have given them a new purpose. :)

Oh hey. My family doesn't read here, so I can share what just came off of my loom. This is 6 sets (4 each) of hand woven, warp dyed cotton napkins. They're headed out for this year's Christmas presents. I really like the way these turned out, and will have to take time to make myself a batch too. Total time in project: 30 1/2 hours.

I've been waiting for this particular author to write this particular book for several years now. :) So I'm more than happy to put my money where my mouth is, and help make this happen. About time!

This is the necklace I put together for my daughter for Christmas. The pendant was purchased at Fibers Through Time this past summer. I made the chain out of copper wire, using Viking Wire Weaving. (See http://tangibledaydreams.blogspot.com/2010/03/tutorial-viking-wire-weaving.html for directions on how to make your own chain.) And now that I've given her her's, I can finally finish up and wear my own version!

Juggling balls, before felting. These are golf balls that have been wrapped in wool roving, waiting for some soap, water, and elbow grease to make the magic happen.

Is this what they mean by 'getting into your work'? (Threading the heddles in my loom in preparation for weaving. )
