right behind you

i get the the story
or something of the sort, misquoting The Who in Tommy. Finished the TAST
challenge of this week-button hole.

Things i've learned:
  • linen is beautiful,but stretches and the hoop needs to be constantly adjusted.Should have known that by the way linen yarns behave on the loom!
  • i feel attraction to the negative spaces more than the positive ones
  • i get bored doing an orderly sample
  • i like to see "the maker's hand" . Although i really admire those perfectly perfect even stitches, controlled imperfection calls me - the wabi aesthetics and philosophy that attract me.
Doing some blog rounds i have been pleasantly surprised to note that i am not as behind for this week's challenge as as i thought.
Now i have the whole weekend to weave and yosakoi

neki desu

    I like your sampler. It kind of reminds me of a landscape, with the circle being the sun... anyway, it looks very nice.

    I, too, admire perfect and even stitches but also feel a draw to a little bit of imperfection. (Maybe this is my way of justifying my uneven stitching!)

    I find using dyed or patterned fabric helps to loosen up the pattern. Like you I hate the uniformity of straight line and find myself losing interest.

    I really like your sampler piece. It has a very Japanese feel to me. Almost boats out in the harbor, with a hillside with steps going up and across. I quite like it.


interaction appreciated!
