Another Road Triip

My husband finished this rug made with wool fabric
and a linen warp. I wasn't too sure about his color
choice but when it was off the loom, it looks wonderful.

This is another wool fabric rug on linen warp.

If you are ever going across Idaho on I-90, you
really need to stop in Wallace, Idaho. This is a statue
which honors the miners.

Every time I am in Wallace, I can imagine
the women of the town coming down the street
with their long skirts on their way to the

Wool warp, bought at Paradise Fibers.

Cotton and rayon, I think these would make a great shadow weave

Cottolin for towels.

Just a little alpaca, maybe for a scarf.

Found some hemp-the large ball is %100 hemp and the small
balls are cotton, hemp and modal.
My husband and I took off Friday afternoon for Missoula, Montana. We stayed the night in Spokane and then continued on to Missoula on Saturday. On the way we stopped in at www.paradisefibers.com and bought some wool warp for some more wool rugs. Saturday we explored Missoula and found a large, local book store where we bought a couple of books, one on natural dyeing. We stayed in a great motel, it is only 1 year old, so everything looked new and they put out a yummy breakfast there. On Sunday we went to http:/mawsonline.org/conference. This conference was put on by the Montana Association of Weavers and Spinners (MAWS). The conference was themed "Carousel of Color." I wasn't planning to take any classes but to just see what was there at the vendors. So we bought some of that good stuff back with us. After buying a lot of fiber things we went to a local yarn shop and bought some more!
