Finishing Our Rugs
Three of the students in this week’s class have finished their projects they’re on their way home A fourth student is working on finishing her rug as her husband is helping me clean up the classroom and store our equipment until next May, our first class for 2009.
Debi Ward was the first finisher in this group and completed her piece this morning. This is Debi’s first try at Navajo weaving and she says that she’ll be doing another warp when she arrives home. Here she is with Jennie Slick and her finished rug.
Next to complete her weaving was Ellen Nelsen. Ellen did a Chief Blanket design and found that weaving only stripes is not as simple as it might seem. Keeping them straight throughout the weaving is a challenge, and Ellen rose to it. Below is a picture of Ellen with Jennie and the finished piece. You did a great job, Ellen!
