Back to the loom. Green grass and an ancient wall.
I had to re-drill the beam and screw it back together with much bigger screws…hopefully it will hold for a bit longer this time. (This is the 2nd time I have had to fix it like this)
Hello! It is time for another New Tribe Textiles Art Yardage random draw – Dreaming of the sun, tiny flowers and green grass. Handwoven with both warp and weft of super soft and supple organic cotton-linen. The weft was woven with fields and shades of green grass, a brilliant glowing yellow sun and meadow of delicate summer flowers. Gathered at the center is a patch of tapestry woven blades of grass. The middle meter and both the ends were woven in a beautifully textured Diamondback pattern, and each end is adorned with hand-twined fringe. It is 5.3 meters (209 inches) long, 74cm (29 inches) wide and weighs 1 Kilo (2 lb 3 oz).

I just have to share something that I find fascinating, exciting and delicious…we just harvested honey for the first time from our bees!
11 lbs. 3 oz. of organic cotton-linen and raw silk yardage just pulled off the loom. Hooray!
