weaving the first tree ...
The progress for May, - not quite as much as I intended but I am getting used to the dark rain clouds over my studio. My skylights do not help when it is dark like this, still I prefer to weave in day light. By now I am getting the hang of choosing my time and going away without forgetting to come back because I got carried away by something else ... :-)
The pattern on top are the beginnings of a gum tree shedding bark and showing parts of it's new "dress".
Here is the first bird flying past the tree, - more to come ...
The middle part, showing the tree bark patterns closer up
Weaving on my "wrap" blanket is going slow - I admit, I spent too much time in the garden, planting my vegie pots with garlic, onion, fresh spinach to replace the still going "old" one, peas,carrots, parsley and dill. Mulching the garden with pea straw,
digging the compost over and re planting
the carnations for next year and pruning my roses,
and, - yeah well! now I told on myself!
- back to weaving :-)!
