I finished threading a name draft on the leftover warp from our holiday cards for 2013. This draft is based on the words 'happyholidays' and it will be used for our 2014 holiday cards - whoo hoo - I'll be ahead for once. Even though I worked it out on graph paper I still don't know exactly how it will look until woven - I like it, I think it turned out great, and it's an original overshot design. It would be so easy to preview and work on it in weaving software but I'm doing all on graph paper since that's what I'll be teaching in April......after all everyone doesn't have weaving software, besides it's a good learning tool on how to draft for all those newer weavers in our guild, as well as the more experienced ones who just follow drafts but don't understand them.
I can't believe today is my 1000th post on this blog - hard to believe I've kept it up, hard to believe people do read it........
