For the last 6 weeks or so, I have been weaving up a storm, working on an installation for the Green Window City project in Edmonton Alberta. Link to Green Window City
I wove 7 banners ( each 5 yards long) from cut up clothing and t shirts cut into t shirt yarn (tarn and ‘Farn’- fabric strip yarn) on my Saori loom.
I rescued a warp chain that an angry weaver had cut from the loom and tossed in a box at the Reuse center:
It wove up beautifully:
I figured out how to weave stars for the ends of the banners:
I built a mannequin, a cat,
a stool, a loom and a stand. LINK
I made gigantic balls of yarn…. I wove a tapestry of the earth, using cut up fabric strips- whew… so many new things to figure out! LINK
And, then, yesterday, I installed it all in the window of a beautiful little boutique in Edmonton, ‘C’est Sera:
And, today… I clean the studio and work on new projects.

How did I miss this post – only found it by accident! These are incredible. I think I know one of your secrets: you are actually quadruplets who all have the same amazing skills and that’s how you get so much work done.
LOL…. well, I often wish that I had an elf or two who could help me get more done…. 🙂
AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!! How I wish I could stand in front of the window and gaze…………………………………….
Thank you so much, Caroline! I wish you could, too- and then we could have a lovely cuppa tea! 🙂
