Fustian Cloth -cotton and linen

Did a little weaving on the fustian yardage. It goes pretty fast once I get my rhythm. I think that's one of the things we weavers like about our craft, it can be smooth and rhythmic. Of course there are other times when a thread will snap or we run out of weft and have to stop. Makes me think of the ebbs and flows of life.

It is almost like magic to watch the cloth appear. How can you put threads together at a right angle to each other and have curves and lines and shapes appear?
