The Summer

Lush, with greens growing every which way. 

Bright, with sunlight filtering through the leaves of the trees that shelter our home. 

Deep, roots digging down in search of water. 

Growing tall with the summer, the plants grow with abandon. 

 

Wool & Silk yarn, knitted, felted and dyed. Embellished with cotton thread, glass and stone beads, with a dangling piece of sea glass plucked from the shore of the Irish Sea years ago.  

 

Just for fun, I've started weighing the cocoons.  This one started out just 8 grams (0.3 ounces).  Now finished, it weighs 35 grams (1.25 ounces)!
