Thank you! To alter the pattern and program the loom took about three hours - including all the mistakes, it was the first time we did it after all. Wink But the weaving was pretty quick, 1,5 m took about half an hour.

It's really great -- I especially love the sparkley background. It adds that little extra that shows you just aren't satisfied with "good enough"! And you didn't even mention the cupcakes...

Am I right in remembering that I've seen your "You Are Not Alone" surveillance cross-stitch on BoingBoing? If so, I'm already a fan!

Yeah, I'm so happy that I'm able to do this. And I'm looking forward to the spring, just imagine what we'll learn then! Smiley
I only have a meter of this fabric, so I won't be able to part with any of it, I'm afraid.

The sparkly thread was very popular, almost everyone used it in their assignments. Smiley It does give the fabric a little extra. The cupcakes were made by a couple of my class mates, it was so fun to to see all the different things people came up with.

You're right about the surveillance cross stitch, it's mine. Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

I majored in textiles as part of a visual arts degree, we learnt how to weave, but nothing that awesome! I'm guessing you used some kind of computer loom? I hope you find a way to display the whole piece, it would be a shame if it ended up in a box at the back of the cupboard.
