These are the most recent 4 pieces of ongoing 8 feet length. This is really like doing a very long sampler and is a good way of practicing new techniques. The most recent piece (above) is in double weave which I haven't done before. The very plain piece will have sea glass added later and the fluffy piece will be trimmed.

These are taken from a new piece for an exhibition by the South West Textile Group. More about the exhibition later.The idea is that members create a strip of textile 5" wide by 8' long from the colour circle.
We also have done a 5" x 5" square in our colour.
Ok I know this doesn't look very colourful but I am dying my piece after it comes off the loom.
I have decided to make the whole strip of 5" x 5" squares all connected.
As I am weaving this on a small knitters loom and rolling on I only get to see about 9" at a time, hence the photo of each piece otherwise I'd forget what I had already done.
