I’ve been printing the past couple of days, and it has been a comedy routine…wind, rain, and dogs have been very helpful. I usually don’t print in January because of the temperature, but when I realized that I had put most of my printed paper in my new Etsy shop, I had a big panic attack. All I could think of was needing to make more paper. We are apparently not going to have a winter here in Southeastern Virginia, so that has been helpful. Anyway, I took some photos to document this process. (more…)
I’ve been working on a new loom. It has five separate warp faces, which I can join as I work. It basically lets me design a sequence of tapestries that come off the loon as a single piece. I just love these looms. The critters in the foreground are my helpers. They are quality control, physical trainer and comedy relief and they work very hard at it.
