Showing — off??

Cazenovia postcard

As I’ve mentioned, for the month of April I’ll be in Cazenovia. Well, I won’t be, but some of my work will. I’ll be the Visiting Artist for the month with the Cazenovia Artisans. Today I’ll be choosing the pieces that will travel there, and using my new labels on them.

One of each of the new shawls and scarves, woven in the last month or two, will go to Cazenovia. The others either are or will be up on my Etsy page as soon as I can squeeze out the time to do that.

Here are those last 2 rayon chenille shawls…Amethyst & Sapphires.

The first one has an amethyst weft.

The second has a sapphire weft, with a few amethyst stripes at the ends. This is the one that will go on Etsy.

Gotta get back to work!

    Love the new shawls.

  • Jennifes

    I love both of them!

  • Beautiful shawls and Judy is right, great photo. I found some rayon chenille in my stash, looked at it for a moment and put it back into hiding. I like looking at your beautiful creations MUCH better than subjecting myself to slippery chenille yarn. 🙂 Pets to Jack please.

    Judy, Jennifes, & Theresa – Thanks for the comps.

    Theresa – the challenge of weaving with rayon chenille is actually the opposite of slipperiness. Although that’s what it’s like when it’s done, during the process it is incredibly ‘sticky’ and quite a PITA to beam. I no longer will be beam more than the length needed for 2 pieces (shawls or scarves) for that reason.
