Phew....the waiting is over.....

Phew, the waiting is over - two of my scarves were accepted into the WeGO (Weaving Guilds of Oregon) traveling exhibit - all pieces will travel the state for a year. One of my scarves is the one above - it's handspun merino/tencel warp and a commercial black bamboo weft and beaded accents on each edge in-between the twisted fringe ends.
The other, which was awarded the Complex Weavers Award (Complex Weavers organization) is my ginkgo scarf shown in a terrible picture in my post from yesterday. I'm sorry I didn't take a better picture of it, that is a small section a larger quick picture taken showing how it is to be displayed in the exhibit - it will hang over a clear plexiglass rod showing the front and back of the scarf. I was working on a deadline to get it finished and in on time so that's as good as it gets. 
Now off to the loom to work on finishing up that ginkgo scarf warp - will be using different wefts on at least 2 of the remaining scarves.


  1. A well deserved congratulations! Both of your scarves are beautiful!

  2. Congratulations, Cindie..........Its quite an honour!

  3. Congratulations! It must feel great to know your work will be seen all around the state.

  4. Oh big CONGRATULATIONS Cindie, what an honor and your weaving so deserving!
