Trying to think what I can make out of this warp, Ben and I concluded the cloth is a tad too thin for place mats and too coarse for cushion covers, so I decided to go for a hangy thingie. The parents' house has been cleaned out substantially and some old, decaying decorations tossed out, so there should be room for one thingie roughly 35cm wide and, oh, 180cm-2m long there. And because there are a lot of browns and natural colors/materials in their house, I think I'll go with a bit of browns, lots of yellows and perhaps a pale green, to lighten the room. Whichever one Mom decides to hang it in.
I'm also thinking of cushion covers and/or place mats using other wools from the stash for better hand/texture/suitability, but that's for later.
And I'm going to tie a cotton warp on this to weave one or two of the commission pieces on the list.
Yup, moving on.
