Instead of drawing this morning and yesterday morning, I spent the set-aside time in re-orienting myself to my inkle loom and "dressing" the loom in preparation for weaving a 2" wide belt that will be black and red. I'm not sure how long the belt will be but am guessing that it will be about 50" long, including fringe.

Below Oboe is looking up at the inkle belts I wove last summer.

"The subject means little. The arrangement, the design,
colour, shape, depth, light, space, mood, movement, balance,
not one or all of these fills the bill. There is something
additional, a breath that draws your breath into its breathing,
a heartbeat that pounds on yours, a recognition of the oneness
of all things." Emily Carr (1871-1945)

UPDATE: My old friend from California no longer needs a tracheostomy to breathe after having had a stroke in September. Thanks to all who have kept him in your prayers and kind hearts. He says he still has a way to go before he can return to his home but has his heart set in a homeward direction once he can swallow and walk by himself.

weaving is so peaceful, maybe it is just making something out of colorful fibers. let us see your belt once it is finished. And fingers crossed for your freinds return to his home. your photos below look very similar to mine from the last few days!
