It is absolutely beautiful with this wood on this basket.
I was actually going for Garnet and Gold because of the Florida Seminoles team out of Tallahassee Florida. But I don't think it screams football I think it is just plain elegant.
Let me know how you feel about it.
Then I warped up my tapestry loom. I have to tell you that it is absolutely wonderful that all I need to do every time I want to change the length of my project/warp is adjust the different components to the loom.
I decided I did not want to take my antique stool to the market anymore and the only other stool I had was much shorter to the ground. So I rearranged my boards and my threaded rod and now it's perfect for sitting at the market!!! I don't have to worry about the weather ruining anything and it's very sturdy and very very infinitely adjustable this is so awesome if I do say so myself!
I finally figured out how to translate my favorite backstrap/warp face weaving onto a frame loom. It's just so much easier for me I love it! Even more proud that I did it myself. It is just the coolest feeling to say I wove it and I even wov it on a loom I built myself!
And can you believe it I went with yarn Artie had I didn't want to go to the store and I guess the purple just one out. It is pretty though.
It reminds me of Mardi Gras.
And already started a new basket today for a friend of mine is having a baby it's going to be pink and brown it's got beautiful work to check it out...
I'm never done a pink basket before, so I'm looking forward to it, it should be cute.
