Some examples of my weaving
Here are some photos of some things that I've woven. The "Album Cover" is one of several placemats woven from a pattern in Davison's book. The brown warp was set a bit too wide, so I doubled up the weft - a heavier linen - using two shuttles. This gave the mats a very nice weight.

01 - Linen Table Runner
Swedish Pattern
I found this pattern in a copy of Vav - the Scandinavian Weaving Magazine. The pattern is specific to a certain area in Sweden and is always woven the same way. The warp is fine, and there is a tabby weft (same as warp) and a heavier pattern weft. These were fun and challenging. The fine warp took a while to set up, and I had to focus on keeping a consistent beat to make the squares square.
