slow progress

June 22, 2018

most of my time is being spent in the garden – and all of my energy

 heavy work – digging and pruning

not pretty – the bags go to the garden recycle on Monday

tapestry for June is finished

I almost gave up – no title, just happy it’s finished

 it was woven sideways again

and now I have a blank warp for July – and a title, “Sailing on…”

getting a little weary of the tiny loom

thinking about building a pipe loom – there are good instructions

putting together handspun, natural dyed weft for July

 the back cover, for the book in progress, is finished

I’m very happy with how the added boro piece works with the front cover

I love the texture the stitching creates – like ripples in the sand

going through the fibre stash I found a small amount of natural dyed silk hankies

it didn’t take long to spin

the fine singles will give a bit of a shine in a tapestry

and now to wind a warp for the floor loom
