Pillow Top...






























































I am teaching at Olds College here in Alberta this weekend...and I wanted to do something different with wool...a lot of the students know how to weave and so I thought it might be fun to weave with wool...not as easy as it may appear...The last pic is the finished pillow...I am happy with the result... The brown squares pic is the back of the pillow. I have another design on paper that some may want to do instead...and really they can do anything they want...I provide the materials and the class creates as they wish...this sample gives them a guide.
I am also teaching a landscape class...I'll post pics next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!
