But let's go from the headache aspect of making art and talk about color and process. The first image is of new chenille scarves, my narrower width of 7 inches which weaves down to 6". These are remarkably from the same turquoise/ purple warp but woven through with differing weft tones. I put on 21 yards of warp which makes 10 scarves and I try to make each a different tone, some more subtle than others. With these 4 I was reaching to make very different appearing scarves so when I put them in the members show at SPA, I will have a greater variety.

Artisans Hand. Customers seem to enjoy the chance to choose a hand made gift box for their purchase.
Yesterday I attended a meeting for further development of the Vermont State Craft Centers website and I mentioned a blog. There are 3 galleries and one craft school which have the Vermont State Craft Center designation...if we all write a bit every couple of months, I think we could create more knowledge and interest about the craft process and its importance. Did I just tak myself into another job? Oh my!
Wishing you all good things as the days darken and the cool settles in this north land.
