Project Trois & Hidden Cloth

Although this cloth was completed a few months ago, I totally forgot about posting it here until now.  Yes, this was Project Trois, or the Interstellar Hand. You may remember it was among my WIPS.

In the meantime, I found what I call “hidden cloth.”  Really misplaced cloth.  This was cloth I dyed with Quebracho Red, a natural dye which produces lovely shades of red, raspberry, etc.  My cloth was natural linen–white and natural–which accounts for the mixed shades.

One of the pieces was stitched shibori style before dyeing.  I am glad I finally located these panels as I contemplate stitching another piece.

More Spring Cleaning & WIPS Part 2

Ten days have passed since my first attempt at spring cleaning, and the problem seems to be that as I begin to clean I find more and more fiber treats.  Then, of course, I must sort through them.  That involves remembering when and where I acquired them.  And making new piles of fiber.  And putting aside a few choice pieces for current projects.

And then there’s the roving which I can now use for spinning.  Yes, I am trying to teach myself how to spin.  Don’t those videos of spinners make it look so easy and relaxing?  I am not there yet.

And then there are the small weaving projects which sometimes get incorporated into my slow stitching projects.

And natural dyed scraps which have been tucked away for future projects.             There are buttons, beads and trim, and plenty of embroidery threads.  So many choices and so little time.
