I am always happy to come home to the desert. It is the place where I truly feel rooted and free. …Despite coming home to a house that had been broken into by a squirrel and I’ve had to spend days of clean up and fixing, I love it here. 😕 These photos are from the #petrifiedforest #nationalpark , a quick stop made on the way home, and I will most certainly be using these as inspiration for a weaving soon!
I am so happy to sit back at the loom, bask in the waning fall sun and plug into the new @devendrabanhart record. So much goodness.
The depth of life in the darkness of the Redwood forest is unbounded! Although this piece sold already, I waned to share these photos. This piece was woven with a weft of 4-ply raw silk that was dyed with Sandalwood, Cochineal and Black Walnuts.
I am so happy I brought some handwoven pieces with me to finish and photograph on the road. To be among the giant Redwoods was such a gift!
Two Etherial Scarves are now available in my etsy shop. This one is extra long (using up all of my indigo dyed fiber) and was dyed with Indigo, some of which was tie dyed with an under-dye with marigolds to create flashes of yellow and green among the blues. https://www.etsy.com/shop/newtribetextiles

This is not one of my usual fiber related posts, but I’d like to share because this is also an important part of my creative world. I’m feeling so ready to come at the exploration of movement this fall like I never have before. I feel like I’m moving into uncharted territory for myself. Trying to push my comfort levels and move without fear. Physically I’ve been dealing with some injuries since the spring, but am working with it and becoming stronger because of it. 🌲 The first photo is by the lovely @handprintedplanet the rest are thanks to @kyleparkercunningham
Sweetness everywhere. My favorite new shirts this summer are my mushroom print crop tops. Blending into the forest floor and celebrating the bounty!
