Nothing beats a new delivery of weaving supplies! Paper plans become active when tubes of thread arrive. First, the Julia is getting dressed, using plans I have written out for placemats. For the Ideal, I’m thinking of a new pictorial tapestry, with a rosepath draft I’ve prepared for that. The imagined tapestry will move forward after I finish the double-binding rag rugs that are on that loom now. Another draft I’m working on is for the next drawloom project. I’m doing the math for napkins in a six-shaft satin variation with three-shaft twill. There’s a lot of thinking going on around here.
Ideas come and go. But if I can put ideas on paper there’s a good chance they will become something. Everything begins with plans on paper.
May you have an idea of what comes next.

Beautiful colors! I’m looking forward to seeing what you create.
Hi Beth, It’s always a bit of an unfolding mystery to see how the colors will behave with each other when woven. It’s very exciting!
I love planning! The potential of turning something into something else. The fresh colors. The possibilities.
It is the beginning of a journey that ends with the finished project…. or over time is worked into another.
It is a guide or perhaps a foundation to build upon.
Hi Nannette, You express my sentiments perfectly. Planning in itself is so rewarding.
