Weaving an alphabet

These are two samplers I recently wove. The upper case alphabet measures 3.5" wide by 3.75" high and the lower case is 2 14/16" wide by 3 1/2" high. It is woven with wool, cotton and linen. Sent from my iPhone

Yarn pieces 4" or longer I save and eventually they find their way into my weaving. This is a rya bath mat I wove for myself. The little blue remnants I had saved from other project's found a space in it. The backing I used longer pieces in various dark browns. When I flip the rug over and look at the backside I see some colour variation and to me it is meaningful and reminds me to stay frugal.
