Trying to feel if this brooch is finished or not... will be backed with a safety pin. I find them easier to pin on, and a bit more secure.

Oh, hello there

These tooooooes

I’m not sure about this color. It’s perfectly straw shade, I think. Some silk, maybe 100%. Striped with natural linen.

Closer and closer

Caught the light slipping in today ✨

Somehow I’ve never sorted all the raw silk pieces by color. So I did. Planning patching kits, what colors do you want?

The thing about weaving is, all the hard stuff is done by the time the shuttle is thrown. No decisions beyond what treadle to randomly press. Texture added and smoothed to suit the rhythm. Strange straw-color mixed with buff linen.
Summer is hard, I’m ready for autumn. Trying to find the slivers of gold that are hidden in the heat and humidity. Time to weave for the present

Thinking up some new offerings... raw silk fabric bundles, anyone?

Only 108 days till we get to drink this where it’s made
