Wild Spring

Whew. And what a wild spring it has been! Crazy weather, excellent time with friends and family, whirlwind trip into the desert, massive garden projects, and did I mention the crazy weather? It has been a very full time. Fortunately I have still been able to eek out some time here and there to keep weaving. My current project is 53cm x 87.5cm (21″ x 34.5″) and I just crossed the halfway mark today. It has, strangely, mirrored my hectic spring in several ways. The pattern of cherry blossoms is an obvious one, but the techniques I have had to improvise to accomplish the details was another. Like those gorgeous blossoms, like my wild spring, nothing is static and everything is in flux. Still, I wouldn’t change a thing!

    GORGEOUS! The colors are turning out much differently than what I’d envisioned when you first started it. I’m absolutely blown away by your ability to do something like this – almost free form, as opposed to the geometrics of your Navaho designs. This exhibits even more of your talents. Your grandparents would be very proud – but not as proud as me!! xoxo

    Love the colors. I can’t wait to see the completed weaving.
