I don't really "do" holidays. But I have a soft spot for little love mementos, so I consider some of my pieces tiny Valentines. Here are a couple.
This tiny weaving is made with embroidery thread -- reds, pinks, fuchsias, golds. I made it a year or two ago and suppose it was ahead of its time. It's right on track for 2023's color of the year, Viva Magenta. It lives on Rob's bedside table.
My hand-painted Double Coin Knot is one of my favorites. Its form is so pleasing. The knot is beautifully woven and sturdy, but not overly complicated. One late night, I was playing with watercolors and had a pile of knots within reach. In that harebrained moment, I grabbed this knot and started painting it, section by section. The colors were wet and vibrant. As it dried, the pinks, reds, and fuchsias melted together. I enjoyed this so much, I decided to further experiment with painting with dyes. "Heart in a Box" is available for sale, but I may just decide to keep it as a love note to myself.
yarns and snippets is a little corner where I'll share some writing, recording my story in a way that's more comfortable for me - long form over social media. so, a bit of a journal and a record of my work, workshops, markets and weaving and knotting journey.
