An experiment

I've been away for a couple of weeks, but  there was a good reason!  I had bad tooth extraction (the tooth came in tiny fragments and the dentist had to work for more than two hours to pull and chisel off all the pieces...)  and as a complication of it I got osteitis, so in the end I'm still with toothache two weeks later , and the thing will go on for a while.... :-(
So I couldn't do much in these days, especially last week! I stopped the uploading of the embroidery magazines, but I started it again today and should finish it in the weekend. 
Sono stata via un paio di settimane, ma per un buon motivo! Ho avuto una brutta estrazione di un dente (che e' venuto via in briciole e il dentista ha dovuto lavorare per piu' di due ore per tirarlo e scalpellarlo via in pezzetti), e come complicazione mi e' venuta l'osteite, cosi' ho ancora il mal di denti due settimane piu' tardi, e la cosa continuera' ancora per un po' ... :-(

Anyway I've started again to upload the photos of the embroidery magazines, today I added a few issues and the rest should go online during the weekend.
Comunque ho ripreso  a caricare le scansioni delle riviste di ricamo, oggi ho aggiunto alcuni numeri e il resto dovrebbe andare online durante il weekend

I've also managed to weave a bit, and I titled my latest project "Cat on the mat" , as it's a series of experimental weavings intended to be for cats... I took a few photos of the last one  (that I finished today, but it's still on the loom).
The idea is of making something nicer than the usual cat mat /rug, as these things  are used anywhere at home, and a cheap (ugly) cat blanket is not very nice to see on the sofa or an armchair.
Sono anche riuscita a tessere un poì, e ho intitolato il mio ultimo progetto "Gatto sul tappetino", perche' e' una serie di tessiture sperimentali per gatti... Ho fatto qualche foto dell'ultima (che ho finito oggi, ma e' ancora sul telaio).
L'idea e' di realizzare qualcosa di piu' carino delle solite coperte/ tappetini per gatti, perche' queste cose si usano ovunque in casa e una coperta per animali da quattro soldi (brutta) non e' molto bella da vedere sul divano o su una poltrona.

I used the same warp  to make three mats  of different size and pattern (but using the same yarns), tomorrow I'll cut them and finish them.
Ho usato lo stesso ordito per fare tre coperte di dimensione e disegno  differenti (ma con gli stessi filati), domani le tagliero' e faro' le rifiniture.

was searching weavers on zibbet, just curious to see how many there are and there was you and me and maybe one or two others! Realized I'm already following your blog so will look for it on my dashboard...
