17273RE: textile stuff for Alisha
- Mar 11, 2014<<How are you using your keyboard stand as a loom? Are you talking about using laminated paper as a writing tablet? Or as cards for weaving?>>
I'm not sure how to describe it well. I have some pictures https://www.facebook.com/alisha.wade.58/media_set?set=a.779949082033864.1073741837.100000563386256&type=3&uploaded=2 in this facebook album. Not great, but... I used the side bars of the stand to attach the threads to. I also used weights to help with tension. Next time I set up to do weaving I plan to take better pictures.
I made the cards/tablets out of the laminated paper (I didn't want to cut up a pack of playing cards!) They're pretty sturdy, and worked well for me.
<<Perhaps these Florilegium files might be of interest?>>
So much to read so little time! lol I'm not planning to do any embroidery right now, but probably later on!
<<If you are using your embroidery floss for cross-stitch instead of embroidery, cross-stitch was done in period, although not with the shaded pictures.>>
I did some cross stitch long ago, and had some floss left over!
<< no_reply address... You can disguise it with (for me) StefanliRous at austin.rr.com to keep programs from using it.>>
lishlish(at)yahoo(dot)com I noticed nobody else had their email listed, and I figured it was for a reason, so I hid mine too. Now I know it was a good idea. I get enough spam as it is :)
