Catching up …

I haven’t been around my blog for a while I’ve been house hunting and enjoying new crafts including stained glass work but I’ve found myself back at the loom this week eager to start with some new ideas for patterns, colour and dying yarns. I’m currently researching ikat methods for dying warp or weft, the professionals also practice a double ikat which involves painting both to create a finished masterpiece. I made a start this week with a couple of cushions, part of a mix and match colour scheme (but same pattern) and I might make a few complimenting larger colour blocking cushions.

I’m loving the green interior trends at the moment especially large floral wall murals, velvet sofas, green tiled bathrooms and it’s making a big appearance in my work.
