Desert Awakening

The random draw for a chance to purchase Desert Awakening Handwoven Art Yardage is now under way and will close tomorrow, Wednesday March 20th.
Spring winds of the desert stir this arid land awake from its winter slumber. Relentless wind, warming days and crisp nights mark this season, along with tiny buds and the gentle buzz of creatures awakening. The stones tell stories silently of their eons beneath this vast sky. Compressed bones of previous beings have become the rock, and the rock has become them. I am but feet upon this landscape, endlessly learning, wondering, worshiping.

This is what happens when you knit a sweater with no pattern and the sleeves turn out all wrong. 😖 I guess it’ll just be a vest and I’ll use the leftover chunky #blackwalnut dyed #merino to knit some hats or cowls.

Querencia is a representation in cloth of the place where a heart resides.   A heart resides among the red rocks, in the dark desert night, beneath the moon, with our loved ones close.  

This piece was woven on a warp of organic cotton linen and a weft of naturally dyed cashmere and raw silk, as well as conventionally dyed raw silk.   The beautiful orange of the red rocks were dyed with sandalwood, the yellows with marigolds, fustic, blanket flower and pomegranate skins, and the browns came from black walnuts and pecan shucks.

Tonight it’s supposed to freeze, a month earlier than normal. I was hoping my #marigolds would make it until Dia de los Muertos, and maybe they still will, but I am making some garlands early. After #diadelosmuertos I’ll use them as a #naturaldye
