We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp,
some are pretty, some are dull,
while others bright, some have weird names,
but they all have learned to live together in the same box. ~Robert Fulghum

In the studio
Since I have so many green yarns left, I am using some of my favorites to weave a gradation piece. The others are going to get overdyed with turquoise and/or blue. Or maybe I'll give them away. I'm kind of done with green.
Ikat board set up for next project.The top picture is the cartoon I had enlarged earlier. As soon as I got ready to start measuring the yarn for the ikat, I realized that the cartoon was wrong. Rather than go back and try again for an enlargement (always fraught with trial and tribulation), I decided to draw it myself on Vellum graph paper, which is available locally at Asel Art.

This will be another piece in the Prairie series. It's probably obvious where the inspiration came from...
Elizabeth is hanging items form the ceiling. She says it's not as easy as it looks, and I believe her!

Guild sale

Just in case you missed it, the Fort Worth Weavers Guild had a sale--we plan to have one twice a year, now that we're a non-profit.The next one will probably be in October, and you don't want to miss that one! Ten Thousand Villages has asked us back, since it was a good day for them also. Here are a few pictures from the sale. By the way, the handwoven towels and scarves are to die for. You really don't want to miss those again. A few more pictures here.
