Deer Season, Deja Vu





Deer season ahead.  The deer are running now, sometimes in front of your car headlights.  Driving at dusk is a fraught experience, 45 mph seems too fast.  Not much has changed in my neighbor Falk's yard since last year, except he's not there.  His old blue truck is parked behind the sheds.

I wove 3 more pillows of rag, linen, and Rosepath,  and will weave some more.  I'm waiting for new yarn to arrive, silk and alpaca cones in choice colors, only 2 back-ordered! My plan is to make wristwarmers and scarves with similar designs to these pillows.  I'm also planning for Sno-Crush, first all textile show, here, Nov 20 - Dec 31.

Your pillows are truly lovely! What is Sno-Crush??? And I don't know about you, but I rather dislike 'deer season' day-glo orange everywhere, hunters abounding, deer crazed, and an ever protective eye on my dog.

Thank you. I've really got a crush on rosepath and rag weave! Sno Crush is
my other crush: the show I always want to see, All Textile, sans jewelry, glass, metal, etc. Amazes me that it took me so many years to realize I could make it. I'm starting
small, but will be annual, so think about exhibiting...

I remember your dear season post from last year. My dad's a hunter, so I always know just when the season starts. Your pillows are beautiful. The colors are so intense, but yet not overwhelming. Balance is one of your strengths, I think. Gorgeous!

Brittany, Deer season, year after year. It always seems to be around the first snowfall, so winter really starts then.
This ragweave and rosepath fever I've got is hard to shake! Thanks for liking them.
I hope you are weaving at least a little these days.

Just about to start weaving a yummy alpaca scarf for my sister! Such a pleasure :)

Ha! I keep on seeing deer at the sewage treatment plant near my home in the city. They don't look quite right there...

Seems innocuous, but the next thing they'll be sitting in your kitchen.
