I totally forgot to post pics of one of my magnetic weavings that I completed for the end of term...OR maybe I have--I can't remember. Anyway this was one of my favourite projects to work on...I used silk linen for the warp and weft and inlayed some recycled silk sari yarn and some of my own handspun silk. I hand dyed everything using mineral dyes--it really makes it look like silver. And there are magnets that I embroidered into the cloth...it's all throughout so that you can change the shape of the shawl depending on how you want to wear it.
I have been weaving lots lately...I work for a very lovely lady and talented artist...I'm pretty lucky I get to weave for her.
I have also started some of my own projects including something for Circle Craft Scholarship show early next year. Also, stay tuned for a line of accessories coming very soon...mostly woven.
Lots happening in the lady shack these days...I'm feeling very lucky to have dedicated creative space. I have D to thank for that. (Thanks! xo).
I have been fighting off some sort of stomach flu the last couple of days...it hasn't been pretty but I'm hopeful that I will feel better by tomorrow.
