I’m going to start a batch of grape mead today from our bumper crop of grapes, and hopefully finish up this weaving too. 💜
Making this makes me feel really good. I’ve been getting lost in the world of weaving and podcasts. There are some really amazing stories being shared via podcast right now. It brings fuel for the fire and hope for the fight. #knowledgeispower Check out (just to name a few) @revealnews @radiolab @onbeing @historycolorado @ologies @riskshow @thisamerlife
That’s how these colors are feeling to me now.
I am just really feeling the need to work with these colors, so this is what is happening. 💜
As soon as I’m done weaving this hand-spun color-grown cotton garment, I’m going to start weaving a larger piece that will be up for sale. How long should it be? What length would you like?
I don’t know what to say other than than I’m still here, working, creating, pondering. There are really important shifts taking place in the world, and in this country right now. Let the ripples be felt by all! #nojusticenopeace
May you all be able to enjoy some lightness and sunshine today. I just listed three scarves in my online shop. https://desertarchaic.com/shop/ 🧡
This piece was woven on a warp of organic cotton-linen with a weft of raw silk and chunky pattern-woven details of sari silk threads from India.

The colors of petrified wood and the desert in which it it resides, woven into raw silk.
