I’ve just been thinking and playing with one of the P2P2 images and colours …


No decisions yet, just thinking, experimenting, …


and of course, Happy Weaving!

PS – I’ve been asked for more ‘process’ information and background…….so…..here goes.

I really like the feeling of this picture and the colours are different than my usual and favourite palette – for me that’s good for a challenge. I had this warp in golds and burgundy and other shades left from a class that I did. I set this warp up for someone else who I knew liked these colours – and it was also set up for a ‘Cool Cross’ scarf. My initial thought was to weave a cool cross as it would reflect the photo.

However, right now I have been playing with loose weaving – leaving lots of space – to remind me to leave space in my life – for the unexpected, unplanned things. So this bit of weaving has turned into something unexpected and unplanned as a result.

Is this my finished piece? I think not…

This week, the images for my P2P2 project arrived. I sat in my car at the mailbox and opened the package – excited to see what Kaz had sent to me.

As I looked at the photos, thoughts came to mind, so I thought I would start this process with my initial thoughts…

The first image …

Beautiful image, love the colours and the feel of this photo. Insteresting palette and different that I usually work with, could be fun to explore.

The second image …

Cool lines, dots of red, angles, open parts, lace weaving, hmm…..

The third image …

BLUE! My favourite colour!! OH – it’s brooms??? and dustpans??? – But I love the blue and white – will have to look at this in more detail….

The fourth image … Which way does this image go? I turned it around and around wondering….

Texture, monochromatic.

What is it? Texture!!

The fifth image…

Granny smith apples – yum! Oh, weaving – ah green, circles, round. In a tray that has indents – though I can’t really see it, I know what it looks like. Makes me think of collapsed weave – creating those indents!

THEN – I read the note, and saw the other other goodies in the package – thanks Kaz!

Well, this should be an interesting adventure. No decisions yet – lots of possibilities!

(Note: all my posts for this P2P2 challenge will be tagged with ‘P2P2’, but posted along with all my other writings and images, so please search for P2P2 if you want to follow the development. You can see what everyone is doing on the main page here.)

Happy Weaving,
