more weaving holes

A stack of fabrics with holes that line up, black strips woven through the holes, accentuated with bleach pen. This is before I rinsed off the bleach pen, and the dried pen marks make a nice lumpy emphasis on the presence of the holes.

I tried to do something yesterday, but between the snow storm and drops in my eyes from an eye exam the entire world was fuzzy and blurry, and I could see nothing. I wound up napping for a huge chunk of it, waiting to get my eyes back!

I definitely made up for it today, because look what else I finished the stitching on:

I managed this one Tuesday, and failed to get it out of the camera. The center is a piece of fabric with circles fused to it, woven into strips of hand dyed blue. I tried to accentuate the circles with bleach pen on the the blue strips, but it didn’t work very well.

Apparently I want things to go both in and out of the same hole so I can still see the round edges. I had to emphasize the edges with Red Thread (!) to get the pop I wanted from it.

I must think further about this.

I would like to make a lot of moons. I like all the shapes of the moon. I love that it changes. I shall think about that.

The Artist Support Group had a nice meeting today, and we were wowed by our own productivity over the last year. Happy Anniversary Us, and many happy returns.
