First there was the Little League game, season opener.
Then more clean-up in the office. I'm getting closer to the end, I think. We carried out seven more bags of shred. Here's a close-up:
I did make some more amazing discoveries, some of which I'll share with you in the days to come. This sample is one I vaguely remember weaving of silk warp & weft, but alas, the notes are lost. It appears to be brocaded inlay on an overshot warp. The sample has been washed, and has a luscious drapey hand. The shiny reeled silk pattern weft glows against the silk noil ground. Glad I found you, little swatch.
