Sandra Rude's blog is one of those I read regularly. She has a Jacquard and her designs are foliage - trees, leaves, flowers. For the last few, I have been mesmerised by one of her pieces based on coleus leaves. (I love caladium leaves more but these are very special). Anyway one of her recent blogs mentioned that she had sold a lot of weavings at CNCH but not the coleus one. It was too much for me so I asked how much and am about to pay for it!!
All I have to do now is decided where to hang it!! I wonder if she has ever thought of doing caladium leaves?
I got some documents from Bonnie Inouye on using Fibreworks for complicated drafts. The notes are wonderfully clear and useful. I got the hang of the procedure quickly and have produced a caladium leaf draft myself!! But I am sure that I can do better and will show a draft when I have played with it a bit more, especially the colours.
I have read and re-read all the paperwork for submitting my yardage to Convergence. I need to work out whether they will tolerate a strip of nylon organza to back up the top hem.
