snail’s pace

March 21, 2011

  –I’ve slowed down, considerably. Yesterday, while trimming the hedge in preparation for the municipal yard waste pick-up, I fell off the step-ladder. Result – bad sprain of left hand/wrist, swollen up like a tree trunk.

found this little critter while raking leaves. Weavers are partial to stripes in all their variations.

They grey scale is woven with sewing thread with beads threaded onto the supplementary warp. This is a technique of the Yoruba people of Nigeria.

and the weft in this piece was wound onto bobbins and woven separately between the areas where it continues across the width of the warp. Woven warp shibori, indigo dyed.

Both pieces proceeded at a snail’s pace.

Guess it’s time to slow down and observe the arrival of Spring.

— early hosta.

    You don’t mean to say that you were weaving with a sprained wrist! Oh dear! Take it easy and hope it heals quickly.
