My latest card weavings.

A couple of weeks ago, I started warped my loom for another running leaves card woven band/strap/belt. It turned out to be too wide to be a dog leash, so I’ve decided that it will make a great guitar strap or belt.

These pictures are of the 3 yard warp; on the loom (a standing rug/navajo weaving loom); and the first few inches woven.

The next card weaving project. This is a green, gold and black, dragon breath weaving on 22 cards. The finished strap will be 3 inches wide and about 6 feet long.

I think I’m going to experiment with the dragon’s breath pattern for awhile because I really like the way you can customize it!!

Thanks going out to Guntram and his fantastic card weaving Thingy that he invented to make all of this creating possible!!

I know I’ve not blogged in awhile!

I’ve not blogged in awhile because the farmers market season got into full swing and I’ve been super busy creating things, restocking the things that do sell, and working hard at beefing up my displays. I’ve not had the best luck with displays and I really do hate putting up and taking down my tent. Natural lighting is what suits my fiber products best and I would prefer to display in natural lighting.

Now that I’ve taken a few weeks off, I’ll try and whip up a post sometime tomorrow about my latest adventures in the wonderful world of card-weaving!!

Til then, get some fiber and get spinning!
