turn turn turn

how should i say it?2how should i say it?

Thanks to all my blog friend for the support messages .We are emotionally exhausted, but my mother in law is doing relatively well for her condition. i guess this is a time of changes.
Trying to get back to normality( does anybody know what that is?) and cleaning as occupational therapy i found this small work,14x11cms,i wove some time ago at the time i discovered lampas.

For me structure is an excuse to weave what i want to say, i guess it's like a painter using blue or yellow paints,color is not really the important aspect. And lampas gave me the flexibility to do that.
The main warp is 20/1 linen stamped and painted with textile paints and the supplemental warp is very fine silk. The figuring weft is tow linen and the ground weft is the same linen used in the warp.
i was quite pleased with the resulting piece as it works both ways, but you judge :)

One more thing to be thankful about is this, awarded to me by Shirley Treasure.
Thank you Shirley, it sure eased my re entry home!

  3. Thank you so much for the award! I am very honored! I was recently given this award by Laritza, so I will add your name with hers. I really enjoyed your other nominations.

    Also, the lampas is lovely. That's a new weave for me, so I've added it to my list of "must learns"!
