it’s not all blue

March 11, 2017

students are making progress on their “log cabin” scarves

a slight mistake in threading,

we tied in a temporary string heddle to solved the problem

it would be very nice if the weather was as Spring-y as these colours

a new weaver – don’t you love her selvedges?

just getting started – beautiful hemstitching

my rag weave placemats are very colourful

it takes playtime to get started on a new “boro” piece

woven shibori on the left

the dark scrap is one of the ties from the hippari

so precious it needs to be given a new life

do you see the small light blue fabric?

indigo dyed, linen damask napkin scrap

kantha stitch – the reason I love making these pieces

you can’t help touching it

above all else, I’m a stitcher

and a dyer

and a weaver

    Your students are doing great work–how fun, for them, to learn from you! I love the kantha stitch and the texture it leaves behind. I need to experiment with this sort of thing on a quilt.

      Kerrie – these students are very keen! The kantha stitch is meditative, no right or wrong way,easy to do.
