Saturday Project

One of my pieces of woven fabric "spoke" to me on Saturday.  This piece has been woven for quite a while but it just now decided what it wanted to be.  The warp is one that I hand dyed back in July 2015. I started weaving it that October.  Now, in September of the following year, it has become a lovely vest.
Shown with the front closed in a more formal manner.
Of course  it can also be worn in a looser more casual style.
And the back is just as pretty as the front.
There are lots of interesting "bits" in the weaving but there is one area that I dearly love. It shows best on the front panel when worn in the formal/closed manner. 
The Shadow weaving forms a diamond pattern in the lower center
So besides household things that needed done, this is what I did with my Saturday. 

If you are interested in taking classes at Craftsy, there is a nice sale this weekend with many of the classes priced at $19.99 or less.  The news release says "Through Sunday" so if you are interested, don't wait.

It's very beautiful, Gene! Everyone will know who is coming, and going. I'm partial to the back.
