Basic Sampler

Here is the completed basic sampler.

 It is very obvious that the sides pull in right where I wove the circle. I used 8 strands of the Australian Tapestry Workshop dyed yarns up to that point and then added a different yarn for the circle. I think I should have used more of the black/lurex yarn because after the circle the sides go back out again.
My landscape is very simple, leaves against a two colour background. I used some oddments from my yarn stash for this. I wanted to try a different textural look and also get away from the original colours.

At least there's plenty of room for improvement!


  1. Pretty good, Christine.
    I especially like the leaves. You are going to be one of the bush theme weavers, are you?

  2. Christine, you've done a great job for your first sampler, seriously! Well done :D
