The Bluebirds Are Back

Twice a year we see the Western Bluebirds in this area. They are a little larger than a sparrow with blue heads, tails and wings, and rusty red breasts and back.

Chief's Blanket in Four Colors

This Chief's Blanket was started three days ago by choosing the colors and winding the yarn. The weaving has a Dark Red campo (field) with Dark Brown, Tan, and Natural White.

Detail of the first designs

The Chief's Blanket has one large design in the center with two half designs at both ends. The blanket is wrapped around so that the large center design is in the center back and the four half designs wrap around to the front and meet to form two designs as is illustrated in the photograph below. The Native American woman pictured here is wearing a blanket the way a Chief would.

Multi Color Table Top Weavings

For the past few days I have been weaving small table top weavings in multi color. These charming pieces are done to use up small amounts of wool left over from other weavings.

The warp is split into thirds in order to weave smaller weavings.

Small table top multi color weavings 11 x 12 inches;
price $20.00 each or two for $35.00

The weavings can be used for an assortment of things, the most common being placed on top of a small accent table, to accent a plant or vase, or as a placemat on the dinner table.

All weavings are 100 percent virgin wool and may be hand washed, vacuum cleaned, or dry cleaned.

Please send me an email if you wish to make a purchase.
