I disappeared into an intense bout of spinning lately, trying out my new colorway with a fractal ply to test the harmony of the colors. It turned out GORGEOUS, and pictures will be shared as soon as I’m done setting the twist. The second run of the colorway, “Mango Punch” is officially available in my Etsy Shop, along with my second signature colorway, “Dyed Leather.”
Enough talk. Pictures now.
Mango Punch -Superfine Merino, 3.62 oz. I replaced the muted sage green of the first run of this colorway with a bright apple. I love both versions!
Dyed Leather – on Gray Gotland, 3.62 oz. The natural silver tone of this fiber took the dyes exactly as I was hoping they would, creating complexity and depth.
I also indulged in some doodling over Thanksgiving break, freehand with sharpies on a poster board. I do believe I will color it..
I guess you would call this a Zentangle, although I prefer less dense patterning in my mandalas.
And finally, I am stoked on my very first homebrewed batch of kombucha! I love this stuff, and I have wanted to brew some for years. I finally obtained a Mother, and now I am seeing the formation of the daughter! Woohoo!!!
Slowly, ever so slowly, I inch closer to my goal of being a weird, hippie art teacher who brews magic potions in the woods and wears sweaters made from her own goats. Because it’s important to have goals.
Beautiful as usual! I absolutely love your Zentangle! Serious eclipse energy surrounding that star compass…which means the cave of knowledge is guiding that magnetic compass star of yours!!!!
Thank you, and thanks for your insight into the artwork! I do feel like that right now, definitely.
Great post. Your last sentence in particular made me smile. Sound like very good goals to me
