This is a perfect example of why I do what I do- my husband thoroughly pleased with his 4th Doctor-esque handwoven #scarf . It's roughly 12 feet long and he proclaimed it perfect. Creating things that make others happy, makes me happy.

I tend to keep it simple in my photo set ups. Much of the time, I use my surroundings and since we've moved, Five Oaks has been an absolutely wonderful place to photograph my pieces. Currently I'm using the lovely pines out back as a backdrop for my woven pieces, such as this handwoven #shawl , "Water". For my #jewelry pieces, I have an antique slate roofing tile in a lovely dark grey that I use, as well as the cool grey cement of the front porch. I find simpler backgrounds make my pieces stand out more, allowing details to shine.

#CTMonthInTheLife, Day 14

Nearly halfway there! So far, so good...

The prompt for today is " Vignette"

Day 14 of the #ctmonthinthelife  #igchallenge @createandthrive , the #prompt is #vignette... This is a #workinprogress  look at a future #artquilt , combining #weaving with #fabric  The #layout is a general idea of what it may end up eventually looking li

This is a work in progress look at a future artquilt , combining weaving with fabric. The layout is a general idea of what it may end up eventually looking like as a wall hanging. Currently, I have finished the edge on the yellow woven square and have all but two of the woven green squares attached to each other, then need to finish the inside and outside edges. Then I'll figure out how exactly it'll look on the fabric, placement wise. Bright, funky colors that are out of my norm, I'm liking it.

I've had several pieces I absolutely adore over the years. The most recent one is this one- Gaia, a handmade kumihimo necklace with a handmade stoneware raku fired focalbead by Lisa Peters ART and handbeaded by me. The cord itself is made from recycled sari silk yarn and is so soft and colorful.

It is for sale in my Big Cartel shop. :)

Technically, I don't have an actual assistant. What I do have are two cats who love to 'help'. Morrigan loves to 'quality control' the yarn when I'm weaving and Miss Sassy loves to be so helpful by laying *in* the rigid heddle loom, sometimes *in* the warp itself. Heh. Both are excellent at holding down my desk and keeping watch out the window for intruders, aka, birds, chipmunks, squirrels, bugs...

Yeah.}:P

This was taken by my husband at this year's Mysticon . In other words, 90% of the photos that get taken, are taken by me, so I'm rarely in them. Which is absolutely fine by me. :p
