Handwoven White Tunic

That white warp I wrote about in February practically wove itself.

I had a compulsive desire to weave, weave, weave the entire time it was on the loom.

It only took about 2 days to weave the entire six metre length.

from the pompoms inserted at the very beginning, 

to the serendipitous evolving of a corded neckline trim, 

and beaded lace accents,

the warping, weaving, sewing and embellishing,

was a joy filled experience.

It looks great. I just have a difficult time staying with one color for the weaving.

Sorry for the delay in acknowledging your comments, PJ, saoriweaver, Gene, and cjbj I've been so busy and engrossed in my "making" lately that I haven't been blogging as faithfully as I might otherwise. Thank you for the compliments on my work. Your acknowledgement is much appreciated, as is the time you take to leave a comment.

I might feel the same way Gene if it wasn't for the variation of texture, grist, and sheen that I put into a one colour weaving. I think in some ways I like working with only one colour or a very limited colour scheme the best. It invites the viewer to come closer to see the subtleties.
