Weaving


This week I don't have much progress to show you on the knitting, stitching or crochet front as I have been rather busy otherwise!

My June socks are done and I will share them with you on Friday (fee free to come by and share your FO for the week with me too :))

Over the last week I have concentrated more on the weaving and sewing side of my creative life.

I thought I would share some of these projects with you, even if some of them are not directly for me to create.

As you may know, if you have been following me for a bit of time, I work in a weaving studio with mentally handicapped people. Some of my ladies are incredibly talented and I am quite proud to be able to work with them all. 

Generally they weave, but I prepare their warps for them according to products that I would like to see in our "For Sale" window.

Above is a warp for a client that should be started on in the near future.
This will become kitchen towels and is made with Cotton-Lin 22/2

This pretty warp will become fabric that I plan to sew into bags or zipped cosmetic bags.

This is one of my favourite warps at the moment.
It is a waffle weave that will eventually become hand-towels.

On the sewing front, I will be starting a new sewing project next week.

I have chosen to make a Burda pattern from a couple of years ago (6/2012 pattern 125) and will be modifying it slightly.

Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing my finished sewing projects with you all and hope you will share some of yours with me too ;)

Reading wise: I have finally picked up my book again and am trying to get through the title at a timely pace as I have really let my reading slide this year and I hope to rectify that soon.

I will be sharing this post with all of my lovely creative friends, so do pop over there for some great inspiration!

See you on Friday.
