A Dreary Tuesday is Brightened up in My Loom Room

.


Ohh it's raining all day... and dark and grey.... 

But I found some sunshine on my looms! 

Bright sunshine yellow, cobalt blue, sky blue and white....  
it just brings the summer sunshine right into my studio! 




This rug is fininshed ... so the pic is taken from under the loom!   It's a white background with bits of burgundy printed floral pattern...  on a striped warp of burgundy/black/white and hunter green.  It's a long runner.



Here are a pair of rugs with some thick blue flannel and some fringey selvage from factory waste leftover in upholstery fabric making.  Recycling!   It sure adds interest and texture to the rug.  


Yesterday I worked on this rug and finished it up.... random rows of blue/burgundy/deep plum and cream


Here is a closeup shot of the rug above, because it kinda plays tricks on the camera 
from being diagonal rows of bumps (called a "twill")


These rugs are all spoken for already, so are not for sale but I can do custom orders...  email me at pfundt@gmail.com    Also I do sell some rugs at my Etsy store

Sweet little Chelsea was napping a lot today so I got some weaving done, 
and when she is awake, we have a portable crib set up in my studio.  
I bang away on the looms while I sing her songs....   "Old McDonald" being the favorite.   
So we go through a whole litany of animals, and she is sooo happy.   

Wonder if she will grow up to be a Weaver?   Or a Farmer?

  2. Karen... your rugs are so beautiful. I may save my money and buy one from you also. Could you post your site where you advertise your products?? I know you did that a while back...was it Etsy?

    I can certainly see how your rugs could brighten up any day. :)

  6. Karen, they're gorgeous! There was a woman that lived next to us when I was a kid that did the same type of weaving. Yours is awesome!

  7. Weaving is a joy. Yarn or rags, the act of creating is good for the soul and the mind.

    Love your work.
