Leave it to me to wait until almost the end of January to actually wish you a happy new year. Sorry about that. I do hope that 2013 is off to a great start for you dear readers.
I've just been plugging away on things...I haven't been feeling my best so that's put me behind in my plans but I hope to soon be back to my regular schedule of weaving things weekly.
These latest pics are a series of 5 that I wove in December just before the holiday.Two of which went to my parents (they always get scarves :) and the rest are for sale over at the Silk Weaving Studio on Granville Island.
I'm really excited that some of my work is available at The Cross in Yaletown. I love love love that store. It's so beautifully curated and I always add like 10 things to my wish list.
There are 9 pieces available there. These won't be available anywhere else so they are special. Go visit this lovely store!
Now, on to another series. I'm working on some patterned pieces at the moment...I'm just in the middle of preparing the warp and making some last minute design changes. I will show you soon!
Working away on new things-this is part of an order for a local store.
I'm short on time right now, I will write more soon!
I've been super busy weaving and dyeing lately...I'm not complaining, I really love it. I've said this many times, but I really do feel lucky to be able to just do this for a living. And I love it when I'm busy, cause that means something's happening...and I like that too.
That only made a little bit of sense... In my defense, I just inhaled fumes from cleaning the bath tub.
So Circle Craft ended this past Sunday. We really had a lot of fun hanging out in our booth, weaving and chatting with customers.
Right now I'm working on two things: One, just finishing up some stuff for the Capilano University Student & Alumni sale, this upcoming Tuesday up at Capilano University. I think this is one of the best textile sales of the year. There is such a mix of things...I've picked up some goodies in the past. This year I am participating as an alumni. I have lots of goodies ready to go including, naturally dyed silk scarves, some wovens in linen, silk and wool, and some other fun stuff I've been playing with. I love participating in this sale because I feel a real freedom creating for it.
Two: I'm working on a couple of series that will be available at a very cool and lovely local store here in Vancouver. This is one of my favourite stores so I'm really excited to be making some special wovens for them.
And there it is, what I've been working on. Happy week everyone.
ps the pic is my very first weaving I completed in textile art school. It is a sampler. I have it hanging on our wall.
My last post I wrote about all the weaving I've been doing...I wasn't kidding, here are some pics.
Most of the above is silk/merino with the exception of the bottom one which is silk and soy. All feel great on. These are just a few pieces, there are more...if you're interested, they are available over at the Silk Weaving Studio
...come visit :)
Back to finish making dins.
