Spring has sprung

April 4, 2017

busy, busy

with not much to show for it

hours of weeding, and an aching back

have to attack before the ground dries up and I can’t even get a shovel in it

yesterday was a perfect Spring day

I love the smell of laundry dried in the sun

dandelions are beautiful when you look at just one – up close

they are called tampopo in Japanese – did you see the movie?

every day there is something new in bloom

lovely soft colours

back to work, still weaving rag placemats

it always takes more rags than I expect

mainly using indigo dyed sheets and old futon covers

it they run out I’ll have to raid my closet

it is Studio Tour time again

I was hoping to have a new warp on!

    I guess one good thing about spring coming late here is that I haven’t had any outdoor work to do yet! But i yearn for flowers . . . How many studio tours do you do a year? It seems like you’re always gearing up for one!

    spring bursting -literaly- on you is a new to me feeling. people rhapsodize about the med,but spring there is pretty uneventful.

    Your flowers are still ahead of ours though it seems like we can actually see them growing! Plum and cherry are finally starting to show in abundance. The air smells divine!

    Your sakiori mats are lovely. Uses up fabric in a hurry, doesn’t it?

      Louisa – you had a much colder winter than here, I still lost some plants I’ve never had a problem with before. The rags are weaving up but not very fast, just don’t have much weaving time at the moment.
