The terminal life phase of the Stoplight Parrotfish continues to be one of my very favorite fish to swim with in the Carribean. Their coloration just takes my breath away. I wish to weave something that would communicate the colors and patterning they display.
We are home and recovering from the shock of leaving 87 degrees and sunny to return to 32 degrees and snowy (sigh). Need I say that there hasn't been much fiber activity these past couple weeks?
I have printed out some of the different treadling sequences to sample with my warp from Bonnie's workshop. Plans for today include cutting out some fabric for an Easter outfit. It turns out that the pale gold suede colth won't be too warm for Easter after all. Then I will spend some time at the loom weaving some more samples.
Uhm...the comments are almost nonexistent. Anyone out there want to encourage me a little?
