My goal this week was to begin weaving a lovely deep purple and plum wool/silk warp on the loom for two scarves that will be on display at the Phila Guild of Handweaver’s Annual exhibit opening March 23rd. I warped the loom last weekend and I was really looking forward to getting started on the actual weaving. However, the flu has kept me on the couch for the past few days. I am beginning to get really antsy so I must be on the mend but still have no energy to actually weave. So I think a lot about weaving.
I don’t consider this wasted time. On the contrary, I have spent a good bit of time reading about weaving, color, and pattern. So, sitting next to me on the couch, aside from my dogs or the cat, is a stack of books. I’m not bored but I am hoping to get back into the studio in the next day or so.
I’m also prepping for an upcoming felting workshop. I’m a novice felter but I do love the process. We’ll be focusing on creating felted vessels. But more on that later..I’m heading back to the couch.
