Whilst I am still not in the 'zone' I am trying to get things done. Today was finishing off some more pouffés that I started last week.
The new ones are made from some fabulous blankets that I scored last week. Three of the rugs are handwoven overshot, each one is made from three pieces handstitched together. I grew up weaving these designs on my 4 shaft floor loom and I am quite nostalgic about them. (I know I am such a nerd!)

The other pieces are woven as single pieces and include a foliade design, a pagoda and this superb mermaid surrounded by seagulls. She really is a sailor's sweetheart! And yes she is brown. A brown mermaid. Curious!

And finally a tapestry pouffé. I think this might be the last one for a while as I have completely run out of tapestries. There will be more of the rug pouffés though in various colours and designs.
