It was such a grand weekend in Southern California and I spent more time outside….
making flowers from shibori ribbon
wondering what to do with the flowers….joined a milliners photo pool on flickr
put up a shibori flag to flutter in the breeze
cleaned the turtle pond and restacked the waterfall, then sat back and enjoyed reading in the backyard
with the turtle, the waterfall, and some chimes tolling in the background.
here is what i am reading….
new being relative, this book was published in 1991, but since my own education focused on ceramics and sculpture
i didn’t know too much about the history of contemporary textiles and it gave me a perspective and a context
in which to apply my own experience and knowledge about textiles, craft, and art. i’m really enjoying this book!
(my copy is a used hardcover with a different cover photo- many used copies available on amazon for $6 and up)
