my latest finished WIP

pastor m, with his new Ordinary Time stole. he's the music minister at church (hence the piano).
close-up of the design on the stole. it's an overshot called "small honeysuckle", a miniature pattern. the warp is an 8/2 100% cotton green (brownish tint), the ground weft is a 3/2 100% mercerized cotton green (bluish tint), the design is 22/2 cottolin (60/40 cotton/linen) in gold (might be antique gold).
overshot is, by far, my most favorite block pattern to weave. there are so many different designs to be made with just four harnesses (altho' one can weave overshot on more than four as well). and so many variations can be made with just one threading.

halloween morning at my house

this is one of the views from the front porch...the Fall leaf colors with the past-prime green of the grass framed by the unsettled sky just struck me as amazing...

this was one of the five pictures i took of the was about 8:45am and was so gorgeous and fascinating that i couldn't resist...
