Cloudy Day in Kingston Town
















Watching the birds... longing for spring... wishing the snow away.
The sun will shine tomorrow.

Happy Spring
















Sassy bought the little plant for a touch of spring today.
And a ball of yarn to knit tennis socks. It has been years
since Sassy and the husband have played tennis. But the
socks are darling and will hopefully please the grand girls.

Weaving the Green
















Weaving the green is my best effort to create a St. Patrick's
day post with a photo of Ms. Jennifer's latest project.

The lovely fabric is woven on a Saori pre-wound warp using
lengths of Sari silk for weft. Truly it is Irish green but the sun
light on the loom has shaded the color into the blue range.

May you always have:
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire

March is Purple




















The other night Sassy watched the sky as darkness
descended.The clouds were highlighted with a
of purple. Sadly the camera recorded the streak
as blue.

Then today Sassy wove a variegated Tencel warp
and knew instinctively that purple was to be the
color of March.

A Noble Face...




















"You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything you want, you are already that."

A Study in Red































As February draws to a close the Sassy One has completed a 5/2 cotton warp using two shades of red. The first photo shows a fabric woven with chenille and silk. And the second photo is a fabric woven with thick white chenille inserts of 5/2 cotton to create a stripe.

Red speaks to February as heart month.

Tulips
















“A table, a chair, a book... a petal falling from the rose...  suddenly speak.” _Virginia Woolf  
Tulips promise Spring.
