winter break

a tiny group of fibers
web into many things- 
playing with my printer
 and some photos
 and dimension
 and light and shadow
 so fun to have the richness 
of a week off work
only a few things i must do
dentist today (again)
and new jeans to source
 reading an old friend
larger than life moro-shifu

We get one week at the beginning of March - spring break. Since we get out at the beginning of May, that's it!

I began the week off with the dentist too. But the rest looks good- a pile of cardboard to transform, wool to card and spin, stitching to do... that light & shadow image has me turning my head every which way. enjoy your week!

Gosh, what a beautiful and fascinating process that is, working with the ancient looking warp and weft of fabrics and felt combining that with contemporary technology to produce those startling and multi-textured images.

I am now only sorry that I don't have a a photocopier! Marvellous work. Thank you. :)
