The other Tuesday Weavers, and the Clinch Valley Handweavers Guild, are at the arts center dying warp, having a pot luck lunch and having lots of fun. Unfortunately, I had to miss today. We are going to the grand children's combined birthday party. Yesterday, I dropped off my mug and mug rug for the swap. So, since they are all busy and won't see this for a while, I can show it to you! What we were supposed to do is buy a mug and weave a coordinating mug rug to go with it. Since the mug had a snowflakes on it I wanted to do an overshot project with snowflake in the name. I had a hard time finding a draft so I asked a couple of weaving friends if they knew of one. They each send me drafts! Aren't they wonderful? Since I waited so long to weave this ( I had a whole year! ) I only got one of them woven up but I have warp left to try the other one. My plan is to weave a few of each draft.
We were also supposed to do a scarf challenge but that just never happened for me. Maybe this year I should weave the challenge at the beginning of the year instead of waiting until the last minute!
And now the other side. For the warp I used red poly/cotton rug warp and for the weft I used white Peaches and Cream. I really wanted the white to stand out and look like snow.
I am excited to see what I get. I will post a picture so you all can see.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. The sun is out here and it will be above freezing so all the snow could be gone by tonight. I sure have enjoyed the sound of the snow crunching under my feet. It reminds me of my childhood where we had tons of snow.
