|Christmas Balls Filled with Unwoven Thread|
Taqueté Weaving Rule #25: Never re-weave unwoven thread.
It's the end of the quarter and I spent this rainy morning filling glass Christmas balls with fiber. The fiber is the sewing thread that I took out due to some sort of error I discovered while weaving taqueté. Fixing mistakes is fairly simple with taqueté -put the heddles into their relaxed position, pull the threads out from each side, cut them off and start over with new thread. I never re-weave with those threads - that would be so time consuming! Plus, how else would I fill my empty Christmas balls?
I seemed to have been quite productive this quarter - 13 Christmas balls! One specific beetle piece contributed at least half of the bounty. At this rate I may have enough by December to fill an entire tree. We shall see...
