Wondrous Wednesdays: towel #2 in process…

Towel #1—the wine beauty– is done! Towel #2 is on its heels.

This version is in an 8/2 ivory cotton. It amazes me how different the pattern appears in the ivory!

To answer a few questions from my previous post—I found the pattern in a Handwoven Magazine [March/April 2015, issue 174, pages 38-40.]  The design was inspired by Indian textiles. I chose to adapt this pattern to accommodate 5 colors instead of 7. I also reworked the yardage to weave 5 towels instead of 6.

It took me a about a third of the weaving of towel #1 to get the rhythm of my weaving set. Thus, my selvages are now even and lovely!

More towel advances next week.

Have a wondrous Wednesday!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
