I actually love gray on gray, and in this houndstooth pattern, the play is with dark and light…plus the fibers are different so should full and shrink at different rates to create a lovely puffed pocket effect. We’ll see what happens once I wash and dry them….
a new batch of HeartFelt(ed) fish, hearts, and birds have just landed at the Museum Shop at the New Brunswick Museum. Ready to help you decorate your tree, or wall, or wherever you want and need some colour and whimsy….
Have a few orders for some scarves, and these are some of the yarns and colours that are tickling my fancy….understated but very sultry browns, greys, and blues, with a pop of copper and rust. Will do some playing and then decide on a warp or two.
I love these scarves, playing with the number 7, and the fact they are woven on the bias so they ripple and dance once completed. Very colourful, very lively, just perfect for very cold Canadian winters.
So I have this wonderful book about textiles around the world, a resource book for me that I look at — longingly and lovingly — every so often. Was using it as a weight while trimming the latest scarves off the loom, and realized just how much it has seemingly influenced my work. That, or the wonderful textiles I have amassed over the years from around the world. At any rate, the influence is seeping into my work, which delights me! Yes, those are my scarves to the left of the book.
Will be the featured artist from the New Brunswick Crafts Council at the gift shop at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery from November through January. So, I’m busy preparing my handwoven scarves for their Fredericton debut:-) These are some from which I will select.
And then yesterday during the rain, wind, and very high tides, I happily played with yarns in the studio, conjuring up all kinds of new weaving warps and projects. Itching to start on the next project….
