New Piece of Art

Last night I was privileged to assist in the creation of a new piece of art. I provided assistance and technical guidance, but the colors were all chosen by another; the warp was all placed by another, and the weft was 2/3 placed by another.

Here's a picture of the artiste:

She's looking quite pleased because she was allowed to get up out of bed to pose with her masterpiece.

I was amazed by her concentration (she's 3 1/2). We finished 2/3 of the weaving before it got too dangerous to sit still for so long, and big brother was goofing off in the room. He did one row of weaving, and he was better at seeing where the "overs and unders" went, but did not have as much patience.

Momma is very happy to have such a good pot-holder; I'm hoping there's enough interest to make her another. When I was growing up we always ran out of loops before I was tired of weaving.
