My Marathon of weaving
Last PM I finished off the 24 feet of warping I had on the loom. Ended up with 4 good size rugs and one small one. Could barely weave at the end as this roll was so large. Good thing I didn't put any more warp on the loom. So this is my rug roll. All rugs done end to end with that green stuff hanging out that is the filler. The next picture is the rugs rolled out but not cut apart! Whoooo Hoooo!
The last pic was taken from the other end. Now I just hope I put enough filler between each rug, cause I will have to cut them apart to put on the sewing machine to stitch and hem the ends. Did I mention that it measured about 21 foot of actual rug in all. Someone in the store asked about me making a hall runner. Bring it on!
