(apparently I am clueless),
but the two that just struck me are:
1. that the response to Fringeless
would be so immediate and enthusiastic
(thank you SO much to everyone who is signing up --
I hear it's wild out there in the facebook group--),
or be longing for a break
after months of focus
(including the awkwardness of
listening to/watching myself on film
as I try to catch all the moments
when I say warp instead of weft),
I'm actually giggling as I review some of the videos,
enjoying all over again the pleasure of working with Rebecca--
and of tapestry itself.
has made more interested than ever
in the things this four selvedge warping business
allow me to do.
slipping off to our cabin to clear my head
and sank into the peace
listening to birds,
and reading books
(The Stranger in the Woods turned out to be an appropriate choice),
(sized just before leaving),
and continue with my experiments.
(weaving with unfamiliar or long ignored materials, for instance)
couldn't happen with other warping methods,
of these tiny works
with their crisp edges
and contained little selves,
into a miracle.
for your interest
(in four selvedge and whatever else)--
for reading, for weaving,
for making stuff,
for writing back
and generally supporting this work
in whatever way suits you.
I'm just so darned curious about
how it will unfold.
And speaking of miracles--
I wove three little four selvedge tapestries
while filming Fringeless
and they were such fun to make
that we're going to share the joy
and give them away.
Everyone who registers for the class before the end of July
(that'd be the early birds among you)
will have your name in the hat.
