Expo Marche des Tisserands, Chateau de Varaignes 7.8 & 9 June 2014

This years Theme is "Au fil des Contes et Legendes" which means "Over the course of Tales and Legends".  Brilliant theme :-)
Last year the theme just didn't inspire me to anything at all, but if I can't come up with something on this theme within my weaving envelope, then I may as well give up designing and weaving altogether!!!

In order to do something before the deadline I need to:-
  1. Start now!
  2. Choose a technique in which I am already proficient.
  3. Design tightly around this technique.
  4. Don't delay the start of weaving by procrastinating over which design to choose
  5. Go for the Wow! factor :-)
First thing is to order a new copy of PCW as I have a new computer and can't print from my old copy.  I think I will use my warp painting technique as the start point for this, so sticking with PCW makes sense as I know how to superimpose drawings onto the weave structure with this - this makes it much easier to get a feel for what the finished item will look like.

Onward and upward! I start today!!!!!!
