cloth through cloth
i had a thought - what if you brought those long warp strings out from the cloth - like extra loooong stitches, warp stitches? k.
kaite...oooo and ahhhh, hmmmmmm.
and doesn't it look like amusical instrument? with cloth being played?i love that thought
jude...what if i cut very thinstrips and then bound them for thewarp, like as thin as i couldmake them.
and kaite...i need to say...thisall arose from your comment awhileback about being able to dye theknitcroshene thread...so...not the knitcrosheen or whatever it is thread, but anotherskein of some kind of cottonthread that is this glaring orangelike, uh, well glarring. and istuck it in the jar of echanaciadead heads and it mellowed to thecolor we wee here, a kind ofbronzy something. the cloth thatit all is stitched to was stuffedin the rusty cast iron pot with some onion skins. the onion skinswere totally overpowered by theiron. won't do that again. aglass jar for onion. but anywayi'd taken it all out this morningand hung on the little dye lineand that's how this all got started. sothanks
He hee.... I love this and the stories that are part of this wonderful cloth.Love to see your cloth play. You are so inventive!Jacky xox
a cloth mandolin perhaps?and that iron onion dye colour is very moody, i don't dislike it at all, it makes a good moody background. interesting about the echinacea colour. cheers, k.
Okay, Grace, this is just a fantastic idea; it is like a net to catch snips of this and bits of that down to a fabric to create a new layer of fabric on a fabric. It is like couching a thread or a fiber, but more sculptural... wonderful possibilities...
i don't think you even have to bind them. i am trying something now. just knotting tiny silk strips into the cloth, knotted at both ends. i haven't had time to get away form the workshop to gather my thoughts yet.
you are causing lots of new ideas to start brewing...thanks...
it grows like a forest siteot thanks for visiting the picture thing on my sidebar..love the heart on your hand..you're as crazy as I am with dogs!
Looks easier to deal with than the mystery loom! Have to resolved that? I've been away.
Great idea, Grace - does it replace the need for pins until basting down?
hi grace :) oh this is so beautiful! it does look like an ancient musical instrument... always thought looms looked like instruments too. i think it's where the top string bows...
yvonne...it is just a moment ofplay...not a cloth really, ora musical instrument, or or orjust a playful moment. so i don't know.i did tho, buy a spool of jutestring the other day....
