Thunder shower

It was suddenly raining this afternoon, with thunder.  A spring shower!  Here are my May flowers, off  loom now.  And, the stacks of damp bee boxes that keep luring my eye.

thanks for looking at my "work in progress"--your flowers are beautiful--did you hear the sonic boom last night--we did in dell-

oh, Velma. You're a sharp-eyed woman with a good memory. Yes, a little different. I was reminded of you and the shifu paper weave when I took the picture of the ivory square

Barb, I hope you like blogging.
Yes. I ran out in the yard, thinking something had exploded in Avalanche.
I wish I'd seen the fireball.

I love the flowers! When I see this I wished I had more than one loom, so I could try everything at once....

Susan said...

Giny, I love your words--a weaver after my own heart-- wanting to go in every direction at once

I love the mix of fibers, textures and the warm and cool. So delicate.

i love the edges where it seems to be coming apart but is actually holding together in a new way.

Velma, I do visit your inspiring blog, and thanks for the invitation! Sorry you lost my email: it's susan at avalanche looms dot com. & thanks for your flower vote,
though, oddly, I think of them as eggs sometimes

Jude, It's playing with the idea of coming- apart:
a weaver's fear is that everything held in place will dissolve. Of course, you are playing with the same idea

Hi Susan, thanks for the comments you left about my linen scarves, and for your tips on linen. I don't have a flat iron but I also like to use an electric one pressed hard on linen. I've read that you shouldn't use heat on linen, but I've never noticed it do any harm, so I keep on doing it.

I love your wall hangings with the flowers, and your twill linen. I haven't done twill for ages, I'd forgotten how nice it looks!
