I was sad to hear that India Flint won’t be coming back to Eugene in May, although I entirely understand her reasons why.
And as I sat here thinking…. I’ll never be able to take a workshop, I can’t afford most of them. A bit of self pity here 😉 to be sure….. this idea popped into my head!!
How about an “Eco Print Gathering”!!
A gathering for like minded people to get together and share ideas. Do some wandering and gathering, bundling and ‘cooking’. No, or very little, cost. No teacher.
I am still roughing out the idea. I want it to be in the Portland, OR area and in late September. I’ll keep you all updated on plans as they firm up.
The last two photos are yesterday’s scarf paired up with last week’s scarf. I love them together!!
I started spinning some wool yarns for a ruana awhile ago. Some are naturally dyed, and the rest are natural colored wool. But now that I have closed my etsy shop I have no ‘need’ to weave it. So I’ve decided to turn them into a little blanket!
These are the warp yarns….. From left to right…. gray wool (from roving Lilly gave me last Christmas in my stocking), the next two are a moorit shetland/alpaca/angora blend, the next two are BFL/silk dyed with cochineal, then comes a BFL/silk brazilwood skein, the last two are rovings that I bought from https://www.etsy.com/shop/lochlomondstudio and then spun…. both are cochineal.
For the weft I dyed some mohair boucle in the same dye bath as the middle two skeins.
Will weave it and post photos this coming week 😀
I wanted to dye with some snakeweed before it stopped blooming for the fall.
So I wove up a quick mohair shawl and gathered a pot full of flowers….
Captured sunshine for the drab winter days!!
