Love it! The weaving knows.
It always amazes me; what our hands and the material all do to lead us there. We just need to be willing to follow the signs...
5.18.2016 What I learned from this post is that I can just wrap a bobbin around a single weft thread, even if it is a little wonky, and then plunge behind the fabric.....thanks from the East Coast
HI Janet -- Thanks for your great comments! To clarify though-- While I do wrap single warp threads, I do not drop the weft behind the fabric. At the end of a wrapped warp I thread the weft on a needle and plunge it into the existing fabric. Indeed, there are no weft threads sticking out the back of my tapestries -- every little end is woven (or needled) in as I go. I find this to be much more stable than the dropped end.
What a fun and informative post. Thank you for being so generous with your fun and teaching.
Oh, I refuse to agree that this path of yours is a stumble. It's a glide, it's a rise, it's an always curious step by curious step. An evolution and "Hang Up and Draw" was just the beginning. And I want to honestly say that I love the work more than ever. cheryl
The clarity of this blog today has taught me so much. I can't thank you enough for your generosity all along the way. Love the freedom you express in all you do
