Rata Joy

This rich, vibrant colour combination was inspired by my daughter who is now a young adult- who is passionate about social issues and dives right into whatever she does in life.

When I offered to weave her a scarf for the cold winter months at university, she immediately said ‘yes please-red please’

I loved weaving these variegated stripes of crimson, red, rust, hot pink, burgundy, teal, gold.

There were four slightly different scarves made from the same warp length. One went to my daughter, so now there are three left – one here, one at the Little Beehive Co-op and the another at the Wow gallery, Nelson. Made from soft natural fibres -merino, alpaca, silk and cotton – plus a little bit of man made yarn for some sparkle.

Sea of stars

These winter months, I’ve been looking out across the water and up to the stars.

In celebration of our clear, sparkly nights and inky blue seas, I have woven and embroidered a set of small circular wall pieces.

Winter whispers

Softly striped scarves inspired by snowy mountains nearby and a Sunday walk to the Whispering Falls just outside Nelson.

Textured whites, creams, greens, blues and greys – with a little sparkle here and there.

Box of colours

This week I sat at the loom with a box of colourful bobbins on the bench next to me. I’ve been weaving some rich, patterned stripes as I near the end of the Autumn warp length. It’s really fun picking each colour to weave next…

I’ll post again once this length is finished and made into some cosy infinity scarves.

 

Autumn

Went for a little walk recently and was totally inspired by the amazing autumn colours. Warm yellow ochre, red rust, paprika, plum, warm sand, olive and sky blue.

So out came the yarns and a colourful yarn explosion took place in my little studio. By the end of the day, a new scarf warp was designed and made!

Can’t wait to get them on the loom. I’ll post some more pics once I start weaving.
