ANother yummy view
It is time for a random drawing for a chance to purchace my newest Art Yardage creation. Simple, subtle and squishy! Black Walnut & Diamonds was was woven on a warp of deep blue organic linen-cotton with a color gradient representing the full moon running throughout. The weft of cotton and raw silk was all dyed with local black walnuts and was woven in an intricate diamond pattern creating a super supple fabric. The center tapestry woven details and the surrounding 28cm (11 inches) are raw silk, the rest of the fabric is cotton. It is 3 meters (124 inches) long, 70cm (27 inches) wide and weighs 680 grams (1 lb 8 oz). I will draw the winner on monday September 1st at 10am Mountain time.

Weaving on the organic linen-cotton Moonbow warp with yummy cotton all dyed with black walnuts. This piece will be for sale via random draw when it is finished.
With hundreds of knots still to go, twined of raw silk and Tibetan quartz crystals, this neck piece is coming into itself, an i am totally immersed in it. The finished work will be on display at the fiber show in September at Rio Bravo gallery in Truth or Consequences, NM.
i just finished dyeing with another batch of Black Walnuts, it i is just at the end of the season for them, so I thought I’d stock up for the winter. This batch dyed 10.5 pounds of fiber! Yippee! It is 4 pounds of fabric, a few yards of raw silk, crepe de chine, some felted Alpaca and a super luscious Merino shawl that I wove a few months ago and have been waiting to dye. The skeins are bulky Merino wool, worsted Merino, Raw silk and cotton.
