The photos represent a Rep weave runner still on the loom...
20 inches in. The warp is wound with carpet warp at 24 ends to the
inch. The principle of Rep weave is that the warp will dominate,
thus the setting. Rep weave is very often used for rag rugs at 30 or
40 EPI. The blue warp came from my stash and the white cotton warp
was remainder yarn that belonged to my mother-in-law. She was
learning to weave rag rugs in her later years. The weft is called
mop cotton and creates a nice density.
It is a fun project on a lazy hazy summer day.
Sassy is back to her fondness for colonial blue and white.

'Things are such that someone lifting a cup,
or watching the rain, petting a dog,
or singing, just singing- could be doing as
much for the universe as anyone."
Today Sassy hemstitches the Bronson lace runner on her loom.
And hopes to steady the rising tide of upheaval in the universe.

Sassy bought a geranium to lure the hummingbird to the deck,
a bright spot in a gray rainy holiday, only to remember her
mother's love for geraniums.
My grandfather died when my mother was ten. And my grandmother
would take her four children to the cemetery on Sunday to visit the
grave. Her plant of choice in Jersey City at the turn of the century
was red geraniums.
Tradition holds and memory lingers.
