Lots of praise, here. Time for a little pat on Rachel's back head, I think.
Rachel - your work is really good. No doubt about that. But I ask myself,
where your shop's homepage is. The point is, that you do a great job.

But you deserve more attention. Much more.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Robby, i've been wondering the same thing too.

Rachel, do you have a shop page?

84

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Obviously not... But she should.

Robby, agreed, she's really consistent in her work and i would love to own one of those solid color ones when i get a chance to move.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Wow!
Thank you, Philbert,
Thank you, Robby.  Thank you. 
This is a lot to think about.
Of course, I don't have a shop website yet, and I'm not sure exactly how to go about setting one up- seller and return policies, etc. 
Business name, so on. 
I reckon I have a lot to think about...
And a lot of work to do.  Wow.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Rachel, are you doing the whole thong in diamond plait?
That would be a little more time consuming but I really like that idea.
That looks very good as usual. smile

No sir, just a little diamond, in black!
Thank you, Ron.  This one is for another very special nephew.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

That looks awesome, does it take up more cord then usual to do a full thong of diamond plait?

93

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Looks nice and straight Rachel. That is a time consuming plait, but it adds a nice visual touch. I think it stiffens the thong also, and adds some springiness

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Looking good Rachel! It looks like you have a good handle on tensioning the diamond plait.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

Thanks Philbert, to be honest I am a one trick pony.  I've never done a full diamond plait thong, but maybe some of our MUCH more experienced Masters could answer that for you.  I would venture to say not a lot more- if you're x2 your length for a single strand I'm fairly certain you'd still have plenty.

Roy thank you, that was exactly what I was wanting it to do- add a bit of natural stiffness and springiness.  Your thoughts then tell me I am on the right track.  I really appreciate it!

Devin I must have been typing!
It is really good to hear from experienced hands.
Thanks very much, every bit of advice you and our other experienced makers give is really helpful.
I hope to work on some more plait types soon, in between...

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

It still looks super intricate.  High plait counts always do, to me.

Due to rising costs, dirty deeds are no longer done dirt cheap.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Wolf Creek Whips" - Rachel McCollough

That looks great Rachel!  I find that a very tedious plait to do, time wise so it's always impressive to see smile
