Change the look.

Today I' been using a different treadling pattern to create a whole new look in this overshot cloth. Cool.

UPDATED Mixer Art

Wasn't thrilled with the cloth I was making the first go-round so I switched up the threading and am now weaving a classic overshot. Now this is more like it! Image Love the texture. Image I'm going very Victorian here with the Bing Cherry over Natural. Image

Fiesta Time!

Image

All the while weaving these placemats I kept seeing Fiesta dinnerware in my mind's eye.

Image

 Okay, sometimes LeCreuset would also invade my thoughts, but you get the idea...

Image

13 different colours in total from gold to black and everything in between. 

Image

Imagine a beautiful table set with colourful plates atop these bright and bold placemats! Makes me want to scour CList for vintage pieces of my own!

Image

Each placemat is woven with 80% cotton/20% wool on a 100% cotton warp of autumnal colours.

Image

A tiny border of taupe accents the multicolour fringe and makes the whole group cohesive even though each one has it's own personality. Machine washable and dryer friendly.

Image

A virtual FIESTA of colour!Now to weave some napkins that will join the party happening here.

 

Almost Fiesta time!

Weaving completed - in the water now - unvailing soon.
