Today the beeman brought bee boxes! It's a little early, but the weather is warm this week. My new tenants are very welcome. If it's a good season, we'll get some honey for our rent. The neon box colors are wonderful, and will fade to chalky neon. My old stack of empty boxes, with weathered wood, chalky paint, and dovetailed corners, always inspires me. I'm always mining for color and design to weave. Tomorrow, the bees arrive, with their Hawaiian queens.
I just finished scarf #3 on my warp of 16/2 Swedish cotton. This one is called Dilly, the name of a little town nearby. But, I wove it before I saw these bright, square bee boxes, and it looks like the same idea to me. I even wove in a color for the official Bee sign. I must have been picking up on some good bee vibrations.
beautiful with the addition of the little squares.
Jude, these bee boxes are bright little squares, ascending diagonally to the cedar tree corner. It almost looks like a weave.....doesn't it? Couldn't it??
I love the patterns in that scarf, you do really nice work!
susan, i love this so much. i especially love the colors of the bee boxes. your scarf is unbelievable, some day i would like to understand how you do what you do! hearts...
Isn't it fine that he painted them like that! Every time I see them out there it's like an odd little outside room with bright dressers. ( And, thank you. I think you do know what I'm doing, because you do it, better)
