Sometimes I have a really good hair day and then I forget to show anybody. #latergram
Roughly 8x8“ of weaving with two ply lace weight handspun. This small textile represents countless hours of making. Between the time to pick out sticks and poop from a raw fleece, to washing, carding and spinning to plying and finally weaving, this small piece of fabric easily represents 100 hours of work and love. I have a few inches left to weave and when it's off the loom, I intend to slash it and then repair the cut sections. An exercise in holding on dearly and confidently letting go.
My spot for the next while.
House concert time!! We seriously have the BEST life.

The tension is imperfect but George's dance leggings are woven, trimmed with beaver fur and have hundreds of copper cones and 18 mother of pearl buttons between them. I am so excited to see him dance them for the first time. Every stitch was made with love and I know he'll remember that when he wears them.
A new tapestry is underway!
