A sweet stack on the scale.

The first step after pulling creations off the loom is always to roll it out, cut the pieces free from one another, and weigh them. It is mostly for my own interest, but I love looking at my chart at the end of the year to total up how how much I’ve woven.

There will be a few pieces on display at @desertarchaic gallery for @meteoric.torc this weekend, whatever is left will be posted in my online shop. 🌞The beautiful landscape painting is by @olinbwest

Mushrooms for Color

I am finally fulfilling the dream of dyeing with mushrooms. (I am aware it is a strange dream) A few weeks ago, while in the Pacific Northwest, I harvested and dried a few species of fungi to try dyeing with. (And of corse some for eating too) This is Hypomyces lactifluorum aka lobster mushroom. I have longed to find them for years, but have never had the opportunity as I live in the desert. They are every bit as beautiful and delicious as I thought they would be…and what a gorgeous surprise emerging from the dense green of the forest! Unfortunately I didn’t have enough to get the pinks I was looking for, but that’s ok, I’m happy to try it anyway.

Warrior in the Forest

I’m so excited to finally share these shots taken earlier in the summer of me wielding this gorgeous hand forged sword by #forgedinfire champ @ashe.and.hammer 🌲 Being in the forest with beautifully creative friends is the best! 🌲 My top was handwoven with organic cotton-linen, hand-spun colorgrown cotton and Italian linen blend. It is available or sale and will be on display @desertarchaic gallery. Please PM if you are interested.
