Finishing

I finished weaving the green mat today. “Finished weaving” is misleading because there’s still more “finishing” to be done. I guess it would be better to just say it’s off the loom now. Onwards.

Here it is before taking off the loom. I like the combination of greens with all the different textures and shapes. The design is pretty simple and not very composed, just shapes as they popped into my head.

Off the loom and with the warp ends tied.

On the back, a dense thicket of ends to weave in.

And it was a great day for a walk. The tide was way way out. I walked on the shore and ran across this driftwood shrine. The pink object near the top is a baby’s sock.

    The green mat is stunning and pulses with an extraordinary sense of portals , the window like shapes; portals that take us into a different realm, a realm of moss and ferns and meadows and enchanting landscape…

      I love your description! It was on my mind while weaving, how the mostly geometric shapes were trying to channel the much more organic realm of the forest and meadow.

    one side of your weaving calls to mind a formal parterre … the other, a garden gone wild

    the driftwood shrine will be on my mind as I walk the beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks next week …

      On second thought, it’s not driftwood, it’s a firmly anchored weathered tree trunk. Enjoy the Outer Banks!
