Avocado stones ribbons
Today I would like to show you my latest loom weaving using the beautiful avocado stones ribbons I natural dyed few weeks ago.
Here is a close up! How beautiful is this shade of pink?
The pink is the avocado dye, the white silk ribbons and the off-white recycled sari. I've discovered that I love weaving with ribbons, the texture is fantastic and you can really see the movements.
I've also learnt, about myself, that I start with one idea and as I'm weaving it usually develops in something else! I cant stick to the original!
Above I've added wool top in watermelon colour. I'm still not sure if it is better with our without it.
The drift wood is from my recent trip to Puglia in Italy. I've used mushroom coloured leather string to hung it.
