I finished my first spring placemats off this warp.
Most of them are sets of 4.
The warp threads are tan, light blue, pale yellow, light sage green.
The set below is sage green.
When I get on a placemat kick, I am not easily distracted. I get into it. My stash of placemats was getting pretty low, and besides, I needed to surround myself with spring pastels.
I have a couple of sets of these blue ones.
And a couple of sets of this different blue.
And three sets of these buttercup yellow, one set has 6 placemats in it.
These are my faves.
Then I get a little crazy.......hence, Crazy as a Loom. Cuz I ask myself questions, like WHY do sets of placemats have to match?
Do they? And who sez????
So....in the spirit of mismatched placemats to jazzzzzzzzzz up your dinner table, I give you:
Set of 4 MISMATCHED, but they LOVE each other.
And another set of MISMATCHED, with a different shade of yellow.....in case you were going to suggest that I put all four yellow ones TOGETHER.
Every night, I bring these placemats home to tie the fringe. I swear the fringe takes longer than the weaving does.
The wind picked up this afternoon, and the temperature began to drop.
What???? winter???? what's up with that?
Before I left for my Physical Therapy session, I put another warp on the Hammett.....for more placemats.
Here are the colors I chose.
It is sometimes hard to imagine what they will look like together, but I just have to
trust my instinct.
So I hearby declare January Placemat Month.
It works for me.
This is just as complicated as I want my life to be.
