Spring fever

March 14, 2018

it is finally warm and dry enough to start work in the garden

apologies to all those still getting snow

six hours up and down the step-ladder and the cedar hedge is approximately ten inches shorter

oh joy – the sky is blue and everything is blooming

April’s tapestry is started

a self-portrait

another first – weaving the image sideways

I’m committed to using only handspun yarn

which can be a challenge – the background is a very pale natural grey

seen at the bottom of the picture

the only yarn in the stash was too fine so two yarns are used together

the boro quilt is coming together

the old yukata fabric is patched together and basted to the back

testing the woven binding

it looks a bit Western – guess this is a fusion boro

and the weaving goes on and on

the constant colour changes makes for slow weaving

so much faster if using only one shuttle – one weft colour

at times like this I ask myself “are you crazy?”

but it is only a moment in time

    Snow. 😦

    I love seeing your projects–they are so different and unusual and intriguing. The little tapestry selfie–can’t wait to see that as it develops!

      Kerry – exploring different projects and techniques is what keeps me interested. You do the same with your weaving and quilting. The tapestry may be a challenge!
