more of everything

January 22, 2018

January is always an in-between month for me

like a long hangover from all the holiday celebrations/expectations

and then new year’s resolutions – which I’ve never made!

I’m goal orientated, it’s what keeps me going

I make and remake them throughout the year

and the weather is difficult – here it is generally wet, windy and grey

not very inspiring

another tea towel finished – orange to brighten up the mornings

February tapestry is finished – I know I’m ahead of the game

and the warp is ready for the next!

 I’m becoming just a little bit obsessed

the bottom is my first attempt at wedge weave – I love it

typical of the technique are edges that flare out

Navajo weavers used this technique in their rugs

changing to straight tapestry, I’m working on weaving shapes from a cartoon

like the star – I find this the most difficult part of tapestry weaving

more colours are needed in tapestry weight

spinning Merino/silk blend to dye in natural colours

looking forward to February

    You’re really loving the tapestry weaving! And it sounds like you have tons of energy for this new year.

      Kerry – enjoying the tapestry and also the process of learning/thinking about new techniques and the design ideas. Being jogged out of my comfort zone is good!
