Oh the Weather Outside Is ...

The Genesee-Orleans Regional Art Council in Batavia NY is having an art show entitled, "Oh the Weather Outside Is ...", and I submitted two wall-hangings into the show.

The first, Madras Christmas uses cotton for the warp in a ripsmatta pattern. The weft includes the cotton thread used for the lime green selvedge yarn and a sea-blue sari ribbon. The hanging measures 10.5" by 20"
  
The second hanging entitled, Winter Mist is woven from chenille and accented with beads. It measures 15" by 19.5", but feels heavier due to the beads on the fringe at the bottom. For this hanging, I painted the hanging rod silver and added a chain to support the hanging.




All in all, I think both hangings look well.
