September fun

September 27, 2017

the month has slipped away

the journal pages are finished for September

only three more months to plan and work

coming up with new ideas is the challenging part

the daisies took much longer than I thought they would

the shifu basket also had challenges

mainly because I’m not very accomplished at basket making

and really didn’t know what I was doing

the spokes are new growth bamboo shoots

 they presented a problem when it came to finishing

until I cut them short and finished them with a narrow strip of the paper

and then painted the tiny basket with sumi ink – it is 1.75″‘ x 1.25″

there were many lessons to learn – my 2 ply kami-ito is very strong

weaving the second inlay scarf

using some very fine, indigo dyed silk from Bryan

the first challenge is to wind the skein into a ball

and then slowly inlay the squares

it’s a beautiful warm day – don’t know how much longer this weather will last

I’m back to the garden
