New Angles

A friend commissioned three cocoons (one large, two nuggets) for a mutual friend's birthday. 

The catch was she really wanted the large one to have an air plant. Something that's been suggested, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to head in that direction.  But when you ask me to do something new, (and mostly reasonable) and are committed to it, I'm game!

I've got to say- I'm pleased, and so was she.

Thanks for the push Sara!

Exploring the cool side of the rainbow

Want to know what happens when you combine your favorite colors with you favorite yarn and start weaving?

Magic, that's what

Rainbow magic. Serious magic- the colors you dyed go perfectly together, as you weave in and out of the warped loom, blending to get that perfect purple-turquoise-green-chartreuse fade, savoring the softness of the wool/silk blend under your hand. 

The FRINGE.  Oh, my, can we talk about the fringe? Sweet soft heaven. I may add more...


50%wool, 50% silk, 12 inches wide, 60" woven length, plus 6" of fringe on either side.
