Dogwood

New blooms on a more structured trellis, another transparency of linen and paper.  This one is going to Berlin!  Some sections were woven by passing 5 individual linen filled pirns back and forth by hand, no shuttle.  Now, the rya paper knots are reduced, for the simpler flower.  The knots are flat on the back of the weave, and look like stitches.  Ends are tied and twisted, held down by my sad iron,  then stitched back to make loops to slide over a birch twig hanger. An even dozen, like eggs, like roses, like 12 hours.

Would have been even more "estupendo" if I'd woven the asteroid falling to earth right over Avalanche!

Hi Susan
This piece looks absolutely beautiful! I can perceive your fancy for "the Scandinavian light"!? or you have just a lovely color and material composition in your weave products. Maybe its not a fortune that we like each others pieces?!
Thanks for your encourage words and I´m glad that I could inspire you.
Good luck - Meta

Beautiful! Your barn loom is wonderful also. Did you put a finish on the loom? I have an old loom and was wondering if I should put something on it.I know you have talked about the loom before anymore on the finish I would appreciate.

Thanks,Sherry
