Finished winding this warp for a special order this morning. It's only 6" wide, but 11 meters long - for 30 mug rugs.
I hesitate to do special orders except that this client has been so easy to deal with. She pretty much gives me free rein to do what I want within general specifications. :D
She is understanding of and supportive of the time it takes to do something handcrafted because her husband is also a creative person.
My student will come back on Monday to weave her scarf and then I'll slam this warp onto the Fanny loom. My client needs the mug rugs for hostess gifts in September which means I have to have them completed before Labour Day when I start to travel myself. Since I'm also going to be away for 4 days next week (if my back continues as it is - or hopefully gets even better!) I'll have to really focus on getting these woven and hemmed in time to deliver them.
