Recently, a friend posted something about needing to address the growing dandelions in his backyard - they were multiplying quickly. The first thing that came to mind was a vision of him giving a rousing speech, addressing the dandelions as such:
“Hear ye, o Dandy Lions of the land of the back yard. I ask of you to retreat! Retreat now, be gone from this here land, or I will see to it that ye shall be banished.”
But perhaps that's not what he meant about addressing the dandelions. I actually really like dandelions, so this weaving is my way of celebrating them. If you don’t like dandelions, this weaving is a large marigold, or zinnia. There's nothing cheerier than a happy little yellow circle face smiling up at you in the springtime.
This weaving is thick with texture - loads of different types of wool and cotton yarns, string and cord all tied to create density and dimension that ask to be touched. (Just like you'd want to rub a soft dandelion on your cheek as a kid!)
Materials: Wool and Cotton Yarns, String and Rope on Driftwood
Dimensions: 8" wide by 14" long
