There and Back Again

I cut the weaving off the loom almost on the way to the airport. When I decided to finish it off in Columbus, I felt much better. It would become a part of the workshop. The students couldn't quite believe the difference before and after laundering. I'll attempt to get a nice picture of it being worn.

I got so caught up in the workshop that I really didn't take very many pictures---in fact these are the only ones. I just spent the whole evening trying to create a pleasing arrangement. I'm not sure which one I prefer. I love all the variations in the warps! Hopefully I will get to see pictures of the finished pieces.

There is only 1 block in the same position in both.

Which do YOU like better?

Next workshop: Color Horoscope Weaving
Location: Missoula, Montana
Date: November 13-14

I believe there are still a couple of spaces if you happen to be in the area and are looking for a colorful experience.

I like the top one best but they are both wonderful!

I prefer the second, it's more horizontal. But they are both pretty.

Pretty warps!

The top one; it seems more "balanced" and red is so powerful--a warrior color. Just finished reading A Perfect Red! I may have to have a red phase too! xo

The top one really pops! It has a lot more personality than the lower one.Red phase sounds good, I need to get away from my purple and blue's.

the top one makes me feel nervous,
the bottom one is soothing.

I like the bottom one best, but I can´t really explain why. Maybe it is a little more peaceful? Ikat is wonderful, something happens all the time.

I think I like the second best, but as soon as I say that then I like the first a bit more, then I look at them again... Nah, I'm no use for a straight answer - they're both lovely! :-P
