I have always loved the colours of autumn, the warmth, the golden colours emerging from the greens of summer, treasure.
I have been carding my naturally dyed wool with commercial fleece i.e. bought from Bristol wool fair, along with re-cycled sari yarn, silk, alpaca, jute, linen etc etc. All together they make a pallet of autumn or so i felt.
Some woven cushions inspired by walks in nearby woods when they were full of the most amazing foxgloves. I am just loving my Ashford knitters loom and free weaving.
I thought I would try and grow my own flax, it looks so beautiful but just read how to prepare for spinning, think I’m up for a bit of a challenge!
Soon to be for sale on Esty…when i work out how to!! Don’t think i will put them in the caravans. By the way Ruby is ready for hire, just awaiting her gorgeous stripy awning to arrive, more photos soon. Check out http://www.devonvalleyglamping.co.uk
bluebell wood inspired weavings made into cushions
Three cushions made with Devon Wildlife Trust Halsdon bluebell wood weavings. This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style. The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.
