a new day

June 27, 2018

changes are happening – all rather slowly

they start at the front door

this hydrangea has welcomed everyone for 24 years

I struggled to dig it out but the roots were large and deep

it was just beginning to flower – but it had to go

a butterfly is supervising

inside – the tapestry for July is started

a summer sail in the moonlight

the Australian Tapestry Workshop – http://www.austapestry.com.au

has the most wonderful website, exquisite work

click on “tapestry” on the right of the home page

 then click on any individual picture

 you will see multiple pictures of the weaving/designing process

with written commentary on the artist – including HRH Prince Charles – and the weaving

it is magic – far better than anything on Facebook

meanwhile a warp is ready to go on the loom

8 harness advancing twill with 20/2 cotton from the stash, all natural dyes

just starting – a small, scrappy boro with a stencilled pattern from a workshop in Japan

some scraps of shibori, a tiny bit of kasuri and some handwoven pieces

it is amazing what you can find in the scrap basket

patterns are everywhere

and now to thread the loom
