breathe ... and weave!
The 'breathe' is a sigh of relief, as I have now finished my studies for the year and can just relax and concentrate of my weaving and my own tapestry practice - yippee!!
For my first weekend of being a 'free agent', I visited Bowerbird Bazaar, my favourite design market in Adelaide! I bought a few little things, like this fantastic ceramic bones necklace from Meow Girl, and a gorgeous all-natural perfume from One Seed - it was a 'make your own blend' special, and I chose patchouli, triple jasmine accord and blood orange - yummm!!! I think she will be having that option on her website shortly, so I will definitely be getting that one again (maybe with a touch more patchouli, as it tends to get lost amongst the other two).
Of course, I have been weaving more loop scarves ... my aim is to weave one from every pattern in every colour - I'll get there! Since the weather is warming up here, I don't expect any Australian orders for a while - so I'm taking the opportunity to weave as much stock as I can. Everything I weave will go up on my Etsy and Storenvy stores, so I might sell a few to people overseas ;)
Here's the Geometric design woven in bright pink!
And the finished scarves - a long one in Guava, and the short Pink:
Warping up for the next one ...
... which is the Art Deco design in Charcoal + Black - subtle, huh?
And to finish this post, here's my little baby Frankie ... I call her 'the cutest cat in the world', Anita calls her 'the face of evil'. To be fair, both are pretty accurate ;)
Tonight we are heading into the city to see/listen to a noise event - our friend David Tonkin aka Isomer, performing as Rope Society. Something different, which is always a good thing ;)
