I was given lots of tiny skeins of naturally-dyed silk that a weaver had used for dye experiments. Fortunately I can do useful tings with these small amounts using my backstrap loom. I wove four pieces and still have plenty left over. I used the berry colors together with gold colors as supplementary weft....leaves among the berries.I used the purple and copper tones with natural white for a piece in doubel weave....leaves on the snow.The greens and blues were combined with a butter-yellow supplementary wft for another leafy pattern.I used the Andean Pebble Weave structure to pattern the last piece in browns and golds.A friend who makes books gave me scrap pieces of patterned paper that he uses on the inside covers of his books and I coverd and papered four notebooks.
