When this blog first began, it featured all things quilty and was titled Art From The Heart. Years go by, interests morph, horizons expand, and all of a sudden you realize you are a quilter, yes...but also a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter, mixed media, fiber artist. The art is still from the heart, but the new name reflects my excitement with all things fiber! It's Fantabulous!
I will be posting works from the 'past', just to share my progression, and hopefully my improvements. This was the second project I wove. I was introduced to the Saori method of weaving, which was right in sync with who I am. So, as I wove I tried different fibers, different amounts of striping, different colors, different textures, all in a playful 'let's see what this does' weaving. I left all flaws, joined all pieces into a lap blanket and named it 'Life'.
Life has its smoothly flowing times, and bumpy bits, holes and inconsistencies...playful moments, delightful passages, and when completed, it's beautiful !
