Marquetry Draft

So I'm spending a couple of days winding down from the mad month that was, but apparently I can't help myself when I see this on Pinterest - direct link
I personally call this kind of thing 'marquetry weaving' but I'm sure it has plenty of other names.

So Elizabeth, just for you -
16 shaft (as is in the pic) -
 8 shaft-
and even a teeny-weeny 4 shaft, using the same principles - 
Another similar and fun derivative is 'Pinwheels', created just by having equal warp and weft stripes -

16 shaft -
8 shaft - 
4 shaft - 

 Hope that helps :)

A very fine day was had by all - great weather, great people and a hugely great number of stalls!

And just because I couldn't help fiddling with something while I was chatting to people -
