My wrist's out of plaster and I can weave again :-)
Typing is a real problem still but tapestry weaving is OK and probably great physiotherapy! So I've got on with my sampler which is just my way of playing around and trying different techniques - so far, colour blending in the weft and also in the weave. I'm sure there are technical words for this sort of thing but they escape me without looking them up in a book! I didn't really mean to make such a definite change of colour with the red - my intention was to progressively subtly change the natural shades but I just love red!
There's a delicious little gap which shows up in this photo - probably a case of not beating down tight enough but I don't care - this is a labour of love, not perfection. Thinking about varying the colour of the warps and leaving gaps in the weaving and ... oh, all sorts of experiments.
