django has woven himself into our lives for sure

weaving the fabric whole again after having cut out a square, we do the weirdest things in class over at Jude's......

what did i learn?
several things:
contrasting colours make the overall result look more loosely woven, similar shades make for a more even result, duh -one has to actually have done this to understand this -
spacing the warp/weft evenly IS important,
cloth is forgiving
a long needle is a great help
so are reading glasses

Looks great, love the colour choice and the stitching round the edge. I haven't tried this yet, I promised myself I was going to keep up this time and I am already behind.
