Year of Taps
Inspiration for my year of tapestry weaving with my new Mirrix Loom. Not everything here is tapestry weaving, but it all inspires my current tapestry endeavors.
Residents of some areas of Ireland say that if you have something you wish to happen, you "give it to the pebble." Carry a stone in your hand as you circle the Litha bonfire, and whisper your request to the stone -- "heal my mother" or "help me be more courageous", for example. After your third turn around the fire, toss the stone into the flames.

by Deloss Webber Bento Series beach stones, rattan, slate “ The energy is transcendent of the physical structure - stone, fiber, and wood rise above the earthly elements that comprise their visual presence. Del’s reverence for nature takes shape as varying types of stones are wrapped fiber - rattan, bamboo, cane or reed. The melding of contemporary weaving techniques in concomitance with classic Japanese knotting styles gives Del’s sculpture a unique appearance.

Weaving by Maryanne Moodie | idea to add a modern, playful twist to an otherwise traditional! and expectedly formal home
La Noble Pastoral. Woman either spinning (doesn't look like a wheel or spindle to me) or with a box loom (more likely). Detail from 'Le Travail de la Laine' tapestry, 16c. France. Interested in her loose gown, which is very different than I've seen before.
