Sneek Peek

Here are a few of the scarves that will be sold at the Squidfire May Art Mart. I am powering threw and constantly making, so it looks like I wont have to worry about having an empty booth. Sunday I am making paper that will then be used for pages of books that I will also make and sell at the market. Among scarves and books I will also have natural dyed yarn and rugs for sale. A variety that will sure to show me some ins-and-outs of what people want and are interested in.


These are scarves that I am making using a shibori technique. Before the scarves are released from their tight laces I take photos of them. Here are two scarves interacting making a tangled mess.

This is the straightest I have ever woven! It is so shocking to me that at 120 inches in the cloth is the same width on both ends. It is almost like a computer is cranking out the fabric, but no it's just me.
I am super excited for the May show to come! Another learning experience around the corner. I am sure the cloth will impress buyers!

And A Boom Sha-Lacka He's walking Over To Me

YES! I am blessed to have another round of Squidfire Art Market! This time in May. Meaning different merchandise must be made, summer merchandise instead of winter. I have this in the bag though!
I am so excited! I haven't felt this excited in awhile, I thought I had lost the thrill, but no it still lives!
More updates will be given at a later moment. All that is known to me is that it is May 8th in Fells Point.
I must give my thanks again to the wonderful boys at Squidfire for having so much faith in what I do. It brings much joy to my life and practice!

It had to be done

Seeing the Dandelions on the hill were too tempting to pick. As a result of there teasing Katie and I went out and picked a pounds worth of the flower. They are soaking now in prep for a dye bath tomorrow.

As much whole as it is a hole

While experimenting with new techniques at the loom I tried to make a hole. Here is my success. 
I plan on making this a big part of my work. Seeing as it is a form of deterioration but also a form of being whole. 

Triple Cloth

I mentioned a few weeks ago that triple cloth pick-up was concord with the help of a friend Natalie. Here is the result of the discovery. It was a great learning experience and since then I have figured out double cloth with a pattern. Both are samples at the moment, but I do plan on pursuing double cloth with a pattern in my next weaving. Images will come soon.
Above is the double cloth with a pattern, and below is triple cloth pick-up
