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.

Spring Clean

Spring has well and truly sprung here in Nelson. The kowhai trees are in full blossom and there is fresh growth everywhere.

This week I’ve been weaving some wash cloths in bright and fresh green colours. I love making these little cloths – and they make a useful gift.

 

 

 

 

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.
