New Year doing...

Ready to use, originally uploaded by jckirner.
One day of quiet to recoup and my doings start up again.

A pinweaving WIP had devolved into a tangled mess in the bookshelf.

A quick sort out then to finish off with fabric strips woven straight and twisted.

The structure is loose and wobbly and is giving me the heebie jeebies.


So stabilized with masses of zigzag stitch on the machine.

It feels good now. The overstitch working like a glaze in painting - pulling the disparate parts together. The feel is flexible and stable yet not overly controlled.

A good start to the doings!


  1. Oh Jackie, i LOVE that! Very lizard skin like--wonderful!!!!!

  2. very interesting-- I've never heard of pinweaving, but I love how you finished it-- a classic example of a problem being turned into an opportunity!

  3. Cool weaving!!!! And I like the zig-zags above!


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
