|curtain panel hanging|
I like the huck lace pattern, wish it would be woven more open. The green/sage stripes are to strong, make it look like a kitchen towel. So what am I going to do? Back to the drawing board, forget about this panel and start over again.
I learned a lot about weaving curtains. Now lets see if I learn from my mistakes and improve the next one.

like the insert, wanted to bring it together equaled the stripe in the center not only in warp but in weft horizontally
wanted to continue the insert weaving, love the look and feel of the hand dyed silk, had to take a brake to think where I am going, but quiet please how I work every night a little bit , very soothing.

Just to see how the colors and patterns would come out.
Of course I couldn't stop playing with manipulating the colors. Thought of Carlos Cruz-Diez and the stripes he created in his work, wondered how it would look in a 2 D weaving version and then put in a inlay of color in hand spun silk which was much thiner so I double wove it.
I started reading about Saori weaving, which I still don't understand. But I like the idea of meditative weaving, to weave from what is in you out. It is very satisfying. Of course it might not look very productive, orderly or structured.
