Weaving Curves













Melting in the July heat Sassy is weaving
curves or one might say waves. Very fun!
Very mind bending, one does not daydream
while weaving this draft.

Woven of tencel for both warp and weft
the sample requires an eight harness loom.
Talented weaver Bonnie Inouye created the
draft for this sample: deemed a net work
drafted twill.

The attribution for this project is 'cool'.

Thank you Bonnie for sharing. It was
a joy to weave.

Interment Camps for Babies and Toddlers









"What if it was your child?"
Sassy can not even imagine it.

What is to be done?

Terry Tempest Williams asks,
"What needs to be counted on to have a voice?
Courage. Anger. Love. Something to say;
Someone to speak; Someone to listen."

I pray for courage. I feel anger. I have love.

Pray for someone in power to listen, for this
 travesty to end..

The Red Thread













Sassy has been studying the red thread myth.

Weavers from different cultures add a red thread to their art
to free their creativity to seek new challenges. A red thread
seeks an answering spirit or assumes a spiritual affirmation.


The red thread  myth inspires weaving innovation, a spiritual
dimension to a work.
