However, today has been productive and I'm further along in the writing and also a bit into the clasped weft technique that I mentioned I'd be sampling. No photos of that yet... but if you're curious, check out the Peter Collingwood book, Techniques of Rug Weaving. It's even online, for those who don't own the book or don't have easy access to it (you'll have to scroll down to the book). One of the "tricks" about the method that I learned in a workshop from Peter Collingwood's son, Jason, is to try to make the linking of the two wefts in the same shed lie under a warp thread... that will hide the interlock on the face and that linking will show at the back of the piece.
So... today's photos are in pretty much chronological order, from the first I took this morning to the last--at a reception for the artist, Suzanne Stryk, who will be teaching a workshop at ECHO School of the Arts tomorrow (and I'll be taking it!). The reception was a Globe Gallery in Clayton, Georgia--a wonderful gallery owned by my friend, Peggy McBride--who is also the founder of ECHO School.
Got to start, of course, with the red door!

Fallen nuts began to attract my attention today. Here's one from the walk at Lillian Smith this morning...
