Friday's a day for Rya Knots. A simple technique but which can be used to add layers and texture. I'm using two warp threads and multiple strands of yarn to add thickness. Place your yarn over the warp, take one end and go under on the left, then mirror on the right so both ends meet in the middle. Pull down and you're done. Easy!!

The best thing about moving house is getting motivation to sort through my studio, finish projects and use up leaves. I’m not signing my new lease til next week and it is great to have this spacious time to prepare. The worst thing about moving is packing up a house worth of stuff, plus a business worth of stuff. I have a lot of fabric and furniture to transport! At least it’s not as bad as my last move, when I was in the middle of writing The Leaf Guide ebook, and had about 40 buckets of soaking leaves to transport 😬

And the second scarf on this warp for the Frye museum store. This one has longer sections of a finer cotton so it has a bit more drape and a little less crispness than the first scarf. So they don’t just look a little different, they feel and wear differently as well.

If you’ve been following my stories you’ll see that I have been working my latest commission. 12.5 hours later and here we are! A custom punch needle stool seat. This was a delight to make and I’m so pleased with how it’s turned out: 3 hours of design, measuring, drawing and prepping for punching 6.5 hours of punching with my trusty #10 regular Oxford punch needle 3 hours of tidying up; poking all those stitches in to place for nice clean lines, attaching the fabric to the inner pad and fixing the legs on. One of a kind, unique and made with lots of love. Thought we were going to have a cute ‘cat curled up asleep on rug’ moment, but alas they never seem to do what you want them to 😂

For the weaving of the kilims only 100% natural sheep’s wool, dyed with 100% natural dyes are being used. They ladies are weaving the traditional designs that have been woven for hundreds of years. Nowadays, places like this, where the weaving tradition is kept going, are very rare to find in Anatolia. #wovenpoems #wildheartfreesoul

A completed quilt !!! This was the fifth and final quilt I created for my summer residency with @scaddotedu ✨ I started by playing with a color palette and piecing together some fun shapes. Most of the patterns I hadn’t tried before, like the block grid or the pinwheel-like group of nine. Once I’d had my fun, I had to find a way to bring it all together, which is where more of the abstract block combos come in. Overall, I feel like this quilt has a lot of personality and a lot to say! I’m so happy to have seen it find a wonderful home with @tiffanitaylorsav - I hope it brings you so much joy and light, Tiffani 💫
