Waiting Game

Playing the waiting game this week……………..

May1-7 17 001

So, I have been busy experimenting with weeds and general found stuff.  I am experimenting on pieces of calico which are left over from making patterns at college.  This means that most are odd shapes.  They take 2-3 weeks to get to this stage of being washed out and dried.

Eventually they get more marks made on them via stitch or paint or both.  These are a record of my week.  They have become my meditations of place.  So everything is a record of here and now (only by the time you get to see them they are been and gone!).

More finished spinning.  I think these are destined to be shawls?  Or mitts.  I am currently all hatted out right now, with a teeny exception, a birthday present cast on yesterday….. but I am not counting that!  Spinning is a great activity while playing the waiting game………….

I also bought a train.  As you do.  Vital.

AND an umbrella.

Waiting for what?  I will tell you next time, but it does involve a roly poly girl dog!

How green is green?

My walk this evening with the dogs. I love green. Is it any wonder? To me it is obvious why I hand paint yarn! Nothing in nature is a flat single colour. These are my surroundings, just out of my back gate. These beautiful myriad of colours change every day and every season all of the time. This is my influence. This is my visual inspiration. These are the colours I choose, sometimes in the details, sometimes in the shadows, sometimes in the full sun and sometimes just because they are there.

Dad and pup off exploring in the stream. Pup and mum walk home. Pup has adventures in the long grass. All the dogs enjoying the cooler evening, beautiful light and long cool grasses.
