Weaving Marathon

It's been a hectic week, trying to get things done for deadlines. I get myself into these corners, and the nose to the grindstone gets me out.

This week, three things came off the loom, and are now ready for finishing. Finishing often takes as long as weaving, but this week it won't/can't because it all has to be in the mail by Friday.

But for blog's sake, a quick glimpse of the three new pieces:

Now to finishing the warps, washing, sewing, lining and making stands for each of the pieces for the show. More complete pictures then, and a heads up on when and where they will be on display (Grand Gallery, Amway Grand Plaza, Grand Rapids, MI).

Also, still dyeing! Deadlines. Gotta love 'em.

Until then, I'm under the watchful eye of the Commander:

My new best friend.

What a lovely cat photo.

Are those hangers? As always, a wonderful use of color. --syl

Gorgeous pieces, Sara. The colors are so brilliant. Are you going to Convergence?

Are those coat hangers dealing with choice?

How well we women realize the symbolism of the hangers. Would it be one day we will not have to deal with people who discount the facts, ma'am.

Love the weaving. Love your new buddy - I assume he is willing to be patted frequently.

Love the pieces, and the subversive symbolism.
Also love the photo of your Mojo working.
(Sleeping=working, in cat, but I'm sure you know that by now.)

Cats are wonderful blogging devices.

I "saw" swans or geese. I see hangers since replies have suggested that. I hang up clothes, really I do.

Lovely pieces, btw!

Wow, what vibrant colors! I didn't think of hangers at first either... Are you as tired as your cat looks after all this work?
