Textiles again!


I thought it was about time I put another example of my textile work on my blog. I get so carried away with my writing (and often write ten words where one would do) that I forget that when I started this blog one of my aims was to show my poetry and my textile work. Well, I've kept putting bits of my poetry here and there but it is quite a long time since I put on a piece of textile art.

So here it is. This one one of my very earliest attempts. All the material used is silk dupion, which has a lovely lustre to it. It is an attempt to show a townscape at sunset, when the sun would be reflecting back off the tall, mainly glass buildings.

Wow! That is downright gorgeous Weaver. What a talented lady you are.
Silk dupion ...mmm - going to have to get me some of that for a duvet cover...

Pat Posner said...

That is amazing, Weaver. I clicked on the picture to enlarge it. I'll be looking at it again; I think every time I look I'll see something new.

This is quite beautiful, Weaver. Now I understand your moniker :) I hope you are keeping up at this activity; this one in particular would make a lovely cover for a book...

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

I have read and enjoyed your poetry, but had no idea you are also an artist! Hmmmm...Weaver...I should have guessed your talent by way of your blog title. I am in awe of your gorgeous textile piece. You are incredibly talented. I look forward to seeing more of your textile creations in the future.

How beautiful your work is, Weaver.
Like Janice says, what a wonderful bedcover it would make... It would brighten up the dullest of mornings to wake up to an amazing cover like it every morning.

Your Comment come through all right, Weaver, all I can say is to keep on trying as I too love to hear from and see your blog too.

best wishes,

Annie

It is a lovely material Janice, as it catches the light so well.

Thanks Pat. Hope things have now completely settled down for you all.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Thanks Barbara. I do sometimes make them into book covers.

Debra - I have put odd bits on before if you look at some of my older posts. I get so carried away with my writing that I forget about the textiles!

The Weaver of Grass said...

Thanks for the comment annie. Every time I leave one on your site I get an e mail to say that the delivery has failed - so pleased to hear it is getting through.

How beautiful I can see the reflection of the days last light reflected on the buildings, tempting one to linger and watch its sinking beauty.

Your testile is stunningly beautiful.

Just beautiful! Yes, you should certainly show us all more of this!

Since all the appropriate adjectives have been employed above, I'll just add 'What they said'. Lazy but sincere!

Thanks for all the comments - I have run out of steam - suffering from a nasty bug - but do appreciate all you say.

Heather said...

This has a really architectural feel to it and the colours are so evocative of a lovely sunset.

Robyn said...

Oh how wonderful, Weaver! I look forward to more textiles and poetry. Hope you zap the nasty bug soon.

BT said...

Oh wow! I did a textile course in Worthing and have a real love of textile art. I try, but haven't quite mastered anything like your beautiful work weaver. Gorgeous. More more more.
