Year of the Sheep – Creating a SAORI Sheep

Today Tara came to the studio and we planned to make a new warp. As we looked at the calendar she realized that this week is the beginning of the Year of the Sheep, so plans changed as she wanted to make a sheep to celebrate.

So, we found some fabric that she had woven and did just that.

Here is the sheep…both sides…

When we had the SAORI Kai on February 1st, Tara read this:

2015 Year of the SHEEP

“A theme of Sheep year is to express your creative side. Now is the time for art, creativity and cultivation of beauty. If you ever wanted to explore your creative side, this is your year. Do not give up, be pessimistic or become discouraged because Sheep can only move forward! This animal is unable to move backwards or sideways” –http://www.astrology.com

Happy Weaving,

    I love this quote. Have been thinking of it since the Kai. I believe it also applies to all of life, not just the art part!! Great sheep Tara!!!
