Since the beginning of the “Contemporary Boro Weaving class” I have been doing this sampler as a way to practice my weaving. It was going to be just squares…but one day…a house appeared! The roof is made from a silk tie. I still have a lot more stitching to do, but it’s on it’s way.
Then I made a full moon from blues that I had in my stash.
When I put them together they look like this:
That is ONE BIG MOON! A very small section of a “Human Wrapping Cloth” ….or a “Life Coat”. Not sure yet what it will become…but that is the fun part of the process. To listen and Do. Stitch by Stitch
I’m thinking that I’ll probably add many other elements around the house….ones that relate to ‘Life’…..trees, birds, flowers, clouds, beasts, fences…it will evolve.

Most of us in Jude’s class have been making hearts to hang for the month of Feb. Mine keeps going through transformation…here’s what it looks like today…in honor of Valentines Day.
There are dozens of beautiful Hearts (human and cloth) around the globe today. We are forming a circle of togetherness and encouragement that is strong yet flexible. A wonderful group of clothmates.
Yesterday my house was filled with Love and Celebration…we were celebrating birthdays for Grandchildren and Accomplishment for my Son passing his Electrician’s test.
Today the Sun is shining and we are finally getting some melting of the piles of snow that have been lingering. The slant of the light is beautiful coming in the windows
I did a little bit of weaving with wool and I have to say I love how it feels. It is so buttery and soft…the stitches glide through and now I’m thinking of trying some bigger pieces. The ideas are flowing like crazy. Hummmm, what to try next.
Enjoy the Love everyone…….Shishi
Boro Weaving class is going well.
Giving the cloth a chance to enjoy the White….
There will be Hearts hanging everywhere around the world.
This one isn’t finished yet….still alot of stitching to do and then it will go outdoors to join the “Circle of Hearts” that are being stitched by all the participants of Jude’s class.
