P2P2 - Decided

I discovered today that I have to finish the project that is started on my loom before I can dress it for P2P2, Yikes!!! The project is on the back beam and half way through the heddles, I worked on it for awhile this morning and will go out again this evening.

In the mean time, here are my photos received from Holly Haynes presented in least favorite to the chosen one.

This is the least favorite of the photos sent to me, it is a shop window in Rome. Very nicely set up but the greens are, well, they just are not in my color range.

This salad looks wonderful and I would love to eat it and I like how they put it on a light blue plate but it has that green.

I love this picture of the Smokey Mountains but I'm back to green, a much nicer green but......

This photo is tied for second place. I really like the colors and their proportions, I will probably use this color combination in the future.

Oh how I love Southwest Utah, in fact, I was very near to where this photo was taken a few days ago.  This is actually my favorite but it's colors I work in quite often so I will just hang it on the wall.

The photo I picked for my inspiration weaving is so far out of my box that I'm surprised myself. I never work in black unless bribed with money. I have never worn black except for shoes but this photo just instantly grabbed me.  There really isn't that much black in it and the grey tones are wonderful, with just enough color shots to make it very interesting. So I'm going to see if I can do a grand weaving!

Thank you Holly for the great pictures!

Now that you mention it, there certain was a lot of green in the first few photos, but you don't have to use green, you know. But I do love the one you selected - the repetition/pattern already looks like a scarf laid out on the stones. I would have selected that one, too, I think.
