Wondrous Wednesdays: [B]loom where you are planted…

My next foray into weaving has begun.

This project is a wedding gift for my Godson and his fiancé.

I am creating a table runner using stripes of natural and bleached cottolin.

The weft will be one of those hues—I need to experiment a bit so as to make my final color decision.

I will weave in a diamond pattern that is a modern take on a Norwegian folk symbol.

My aim in this is to make an heirloom piece that is contemporary, yet speaks in a hushed voice to part of his heritage.

The pattern is to be woven in a vibrant turquoise linen weft—a favorite color of the couple (and their aunt, the peacock…)

My hope is that the turquoise diamonds will bloom as wildflowers in a field in spring.

More to come next week!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
