this was my favourite piece of weaving last year. everytime i see it i feel happy - i used a fine cotton/hemp yarn, a flower cotton yarn, a little bit of white roving, and the coloured sari silk. i need to make more time this year for these little think-heavy pieces. i`ve felt my apartment feeling quite empty, sterile, boring lately - i love minimalism but when your finishes are not as great (renting!) it can have an underwhelming impact. i`ve started adding some texture to my dining room/kitchen with layers of woven pieces. it makes a huge difference to the feel of the room.
when we were in canada last few years we attended an estate sale of a german woman who had been a career weaver. her canadian daughter-in-law was happy to show me all her woven cloth and sell them for almost nothing - my eyes were like pies and i delighted in the mixture of pieces in the range of her aesthetic. i got a woven mohair blanket that was fraying so i repaired it, and i even got some of her patchwork sewing. i think my greatest wish is that after i die, someone might chance upon my cloth in my estate sale and find similar delight. so i keep weaving! lol.
