A Whole Day of Weaving

Saturday I spent nearly the whole day (other than taxi and maid duty) in the workshop weaving. My mother-in-law joined me to help with sewing strips together. She loves to sew, and is very fast. Here's a bit of her handiwork:


Eventually this pile will become blue jean rugs, like this one.


I had six rugs on the loom before I cut off and retied. Lots of color this time.


Here they are, stacked on my table, waiting for me to sew the ends. They'll go along with me to the Northern Michigan Lamb and Wool Festival.


I had such a wonderful day. Need to do this more often...

  1. Oh I can't wait to show my daughter your rugs! She is working on her very first braided rug. She has been sewing and pressing denim strips all week. She will be very impressed with your loom I am sure. I am glad you had a great day weaving :D

  2. That just sounds like the best way to spend a day. Wish I could have been there too!

  3. Thank you, ~H and Haley, for your kind words. And Vonnie, if I could know about these weaving sessions ahead of time, I'd invite you.
