Oh man. I love those colors! Which draft did you use for the teal/charcoal(??) stripes in the pillow on the left? It's really pretty!!

Oh, geeze. You answered my question before I even asked it. Note to self: read better! I'm going to go check out draft #28 right now!

I used Classic Elite Wool/bamboo -trying to match the colors in course as best I could--using black, burgundy and teal in the warp.....the area woven with the teal is draft #28-beige #34 --the nice thing about both these drafts is that the two colors do not overwhelm but compliment one another.... accentuating the pattern.....I like 28 on the burgundy warp and actually although the teal warp is minimal....the teal on teal is rather attractive too.

On my sampler cloth using the directory I have all the drafts which I can list if that might be helpful--they are different than the ones used in the pillows although there is a lot to be said for the excitement of finding out on one's own and sometimes the reverse side is unique too.

I'm so glad you feel empowered to pick your own drafts and make your own designs!

I like your pillows Jeanne! You know, just the other day I thought of you and how we've lost touch. Can you believe that since we spent that summer week learning to weave it's been almost4 years that have passed by?! Wow!
