Warping and weaving, now all my looms but one are full of fresh warp. Some rag weaves are
being fitted to bee box cupboards. The red cross one will be a medicine cabinet. The
light blue and green one I sewed into a plump new cushion.
A gray and white scarf is coming along on my liberated Cranbrook loom, and looks
interesting to me. It's wonderful to be working again on this loom. I didn't realize how much
I'd missed it.
I'm sure I'll start to work on my taxes tomorrow, and if not then, certainly the next day.
oh, taxes. I'm sure I will start mine some day, too...
I love your red cross. Your crosses have inspired me; I have been trying to research more about this symbol... I am using it in a quilt I am making very soon. I like the Native American idea that it is tied to the elements, earth, wind, fire, and water.
What do you use for stuffing your pillows? Do you have a recommendation for a wool or cotton supplier? I am looking for a good one...
Beautiful, makes me feel like taking up weaving again! Martine
A symbol has many meanings. The circle and the cross must be some of the first drawn symbols. It always seems to be the right design element at a certain point in my weaving. At least, for now.
My preferred stuffing for pillows is organic kapok, very firmly stuffed into a pillow form. I sew the rag cover around the form. Kapok used to be used for life jackets, so my cushions have the added benefit of flotation!
Martine, Good! I hope you will take it up again.
