More Possibilities Unearthed...

I could not do anything more until I exposed my cutting table that was just covered with all kinds of strips and pieces of fabric. I sorted the strips, somewhat, into a basket for easy access and put the larger pieces back in their containers. While doing that I came across some cording that I thought would make a good weaving to incorporate with some of the pieces I have made in Jude's classes. I also came across some sashiko I have worked on that will also be cut up to use with the blues and reds.

I love finding things that I completely forgot about. I had bought a small square wooden loom about 8 years ago and wove a few pieces. Some were made as gifts but I still have 2 of them that will also find their place in quilts. I plan on reinforcing them with stitch in several places and then cutting them into several pieces. I still have that loom, and I actually know where it is, so I can do some more weavings. I might try using fabric strips this time.

Here are some pictures. You can click on each for a closer view.

it's a pity one has to clean up at the end of a class, but there are rewards such as finding things again. nice showing of your work. k.

My messy piles of cloth get so high, sometimes it takes ages to tidy up! But I agree it's worth it, because there's always a treasure in there to rediscover. Love the weavings.

What treasures you've discovered Deanna. The cording weaving is a great piece to add to your collection. Those sashiko pieces wow to cut them up! Looking forward to see what you would do them - Enjoy your weekend - Hugs Nat

Ha - I just wrote to Grace that I never thought I'd get into weaving - well it is these woven pieces of yours that have pushed me into the realm of 'INTEREST'. Plus of course, jude is inexorable! Gilly

That shasiko quilting is wonderful!!! and I love your woven piece.
Mmmm.... I think I need a clean up too. I can relate to the strips of fabrics and the larger pieces. They need to go back and I need to create some semblance of order on my table...its chaos at the moment!
