Callie's Mexican Orange Blossoms

The image I worked on today is based on a photo by Callie Booker, shown here (top right photo of the group). With Callie's permission, of course! After messing around with the image in Photoshop and finally indexing to 10 colors (black, white, 5 shades of green, and 3 of orange) this is the result:

It was a good day for weaving - 1,000 picks in all - and all that's left is to weave the top hem. I took one picture of the lower part of the weaving, and another when I called it quits for the day:

A thousand picks is pretty good for a day's work, considering it meant handling 3 different shuttles, which usually means slow going.

And the weaving looks lovely. What a treat to follow along your fibre journey. :D
