More Intentional Design

I couldn't resist focusing in on Diane Ayers loom and weaving. For all the years I have been teaching, I have never seen a workshop loom like this---especially for a 4 harness plain weave gal like me.

I really had to put all of reverse loom snobbery aside on this trip (grin). but when all was said and done, Diane decided that plain weave was the most effective solution.

With a thick chenille alternating with a thin cotton (still amazingly with plain weave), the perfect marriage of plain and complex weave.

I couldn't resist making a "virtual quilt patch"

There is so much to tell and so many chapters yet to written. I think I will be coming back to this workshop again and again.
