Ok, enough of the creative glitch. I am kicking it in the arse and moving on.
I occasionally get bored, or frustrated, or depressed or whatever the heck it is and can't get any satisfaction with my art. I am here to tell you boys and girls that I have been in this funk for about a month and I am sick, sick, sick of it! I am not going down without a fight.
I even went so far as to warp up my tapestry loom. I really haven't touched it since I started with the Gilmore Wave / warp face weaving thing. In the process of warping it up I discovered a few things.
I intended to do an interlocking scroll design. My thoughts being that it has no striped background, isn't a double weave thus not as thick, and of course I need to learn to follow a cartoon. Guess what? I hated it. Big surprise right! It bored me to tears to try to do an exact design, even though it was my own. Not only that but I hate that the tapestry room hogs my bedroom so much. I just wasn't having fun at all,
So once again, it is back upstairs in the attic and I am returning to what I seem to really love. The warp face weaving I have been doing since October of last year.
I never thought I would like the big looms with all of their technical stuff. But a table loom, oh YEAH! It also pleases me to know that when I have to return KraftyMax's large Wave, I will be able to convert over to the backstrap for the larger pieces than my Mini Wave can handle.
I haven't come up with another project yet, but I will...and it will be something warp face, without a chart in all probability. Just wingin' it as usual. But lovin' it.
