Weaving is my favourite occupation. But since my loom is not portable,I also knit, needle felt, cross stitch and other forms of fibre art. I like to explore the relationships between different patterns and fibres.
Currently, I'm working on towels using various colours of boucle to make textured towels.
True Carpet Bags
I made carpets of jute and cotton rags.
These were then made into bags which are great for
carrying around things like knitting.
Some bags even sport Dee Zee made buttons.
My collection of rag rugs is getting low.
I have some ideas running around
in my head for the next rugs.
Hand woven shawls
a study of mixing colours and fibres
I had some cream coloured cotton (for a long time)
and it reminded my of my grandmother.
I made towels with it and added flowers
(an abstract version) to complete the thought.
