Finnish weave in silk

2013 explorations 039a medium blue silk warp with a variety of silk wefts

I added an incidental warp thread between blocks

this is my sixth set of samples/projects in 2 1/2 months

2013 explorations 041

scarves woven with a navy tussah silk and hand-spun multi-coloured silk

2013 explorations

what’s next?

16/2 bleached linen

more woven shibori and of course, dyeing

this warp is longer – I need a break from warping and threading

    I am always surprised by the amount of work that you can put into a short period, certainly not by the beauty of your weaving.

      Blandina – the sampling and research that I’ve been doing just seems to grow and grow. New ideas keep coming and I don’t have a class this summer so more time for my stuff.
