My dilemmia

What do we do with all our warp ends? I have bags of them. I don't want to through them out that would be such a waste and most of it is silk. What are your suggestions? great colours, I am using some of the eco dyed silk to weave a part of fybermotion as weft. It takes forever to wind it onto a stick shuttle.

Finished scarves

The white warp is finished. I love weaving with over spun wool as the gauze weaving shrinks and becomes a tight woven scarf. You can put the scarf open and see what the original size was.
Sorry photos not that good!

Genius Mon Lacroix

Delicate ruffles and no colour just white, but then there are hundreds of whites.

Many soft ruffles! So would that be rayon or silk. Perhaps both.

Lacroix ruffles

Beautiful ruffles, all I see are ruffles and frills. How to develop these into a body of work? Sample, sample, sample. Where will I start maybe its collage time, paper, pattern and texture. Drippy ruffles. This weekend may give me a time to play with the end of the last warp using rayon and over spun wool. Maybe some over dying could be interesting.
