I am so proud of my friend/student's accomplishments with her weaving. Last week she completed the never ending tapestry. She is still deciding what she wants to make it into. She also warped up again for a sampler that we found in an old Handwoven magazine, AND she warped up her rigid heddle, she is still thinking on that one also.
She has been a busy beaver!
Funny how opposite we are, and yet we are both still managing to learn from one another. She needs a game plan, although she is always open to adjusting that plan. Me? I pretty much always wing it. I like to just see what the loom has to say to me.
Having her for a student has me rethinking some of that though. I have recently even predetermined a project or 2. Like her bag that we did together with the bands I wove, and she assembled! It turned out lovely, and although we didn't write the plan down in blood, we did indeed discuss it and come up with something of a plan.
We are both proud of the outcome. I posted the pic once before, but I will give you another glance here.
Now for the tapestry!
The multi color (think verigated) is a very fine chenille and really shimmers. When she stared this she had in mind a 'but pillow'...you know to sit your but on when you weave. Since then I think she had decided she might like to sit her loom up on a table. I can't wait to see what she comes up with for a set up.
I love the weaving itself. I think it would be beautiful as a table topper. We were working on hatching and she find it tedious...so we adjusted the plan accordingly.
As for my weaving...I am thirsting for something with a little more freedom than the warpface weaving. I want flowing lines and maybe something that comes a little easier for me.
I feel a tapestry weave coming on. Maybe...I do love the warpface though and you just never know which mood will strike me.
