"And this is the thing about backstrap weaving and the fact that part of the loom itself is ME - a living, breathing thing with changing moods and attitudes  which are so easily reflected in the cloth I am producing. Just the way I am seated in any one weaving session and a change in the amount of tension I am applying can have an  effect  on the way the motifs look…more rounded, more elongated. Some days I weave in half hour bursts and barely settle into it. On others I can sit for three hours at a time and get into a wonderful flowing rhythm."
