February 1, 2017

wow! January flew by

p1110199January’s book page – titled “Snow Falling on Evergreens”

can you see the shifu paper slubs on the woven page – more snow p1110195and the beginning of February

handspun silk woven on my very old Weave-It loom

mother-of-pearl buttons and glass “jet” buttons

on a background of kakishibu dyed linen

why?  just because I like them

p1110201I started weaving squares to make more flowers for the next Studio Tour

the weaving is a bit addictive, hard to stop

 it uses up odd little balls of precious handspun

p1110193and I can’t stop spinning either

Bombyx silk spun on my IST Crafts Turkish spindle

      Alice – I enjoy combining the variety of techniques and putting them all together in books is the ultimate pleasure.
