A little w.i.p...
modern day "rags" woven onto a make-do loom, once the bottom half of a box of notecards.
Light as a feather and easy to hold, just 5 by 7 inches. Splendid idea, wish it had been mine...
... Jude Hill's 'Contemporary Woven Boro' class is in full swing
and this tension technique comes from creating a small frame from whatever we have at hand.
I know I'm not alone when I say I ***LOVE*** this process, weaving without a foundation...
The warp is from torn bits of an old silk blouse...all the rest scraps from this & that.
A silly question...ever tear cloth with your teeth?
I'm an expert now: chomp down hard at the place you are starting the tear
and pull strong & steady with one hand straight out in front of you.
Heh, you never know when such skills could come in handy...
They co-mingle so nicely, all those tiny ribbony pieces...
Here is the back looking much like an Apricot Surprise birthday present.
I couldn't tie bows (more on that below) so the ends are knotted instead...
So what about this "hard place" I mentioned in the title of this post?
I am unable to sew. Not a stitch.
Unable to use my right hand for most anything at the moment...
The doc says he can fix me up, only a matter of time...time which is ticking faster now with my boro mates.
So this is why you are not seeing any basting...no surface embellishment of any kind.
Hope you like *puffy* as much as I do, it will have to suffice for now.
...just wanted you to know...
While so many parts of our country are still covered in deep snow & frigid cold,
we were able to enjoy THIS today...
