Came into a PILE of old burlap bags! It was a chore to wash them out, including the old coffee beans but now that they are ready to be used I am loven them. Something about the raw materials, the warp and weft, the texture hmmmmm what can I do with them.

I've had a lot of couch time while recovering from my sprained foot. During that time I"ve made a serious dent in the owl tapestry, and beginning to think it may be completed by winter! But even more exciting news, I was able to make it up the stairs to my beloved attic studio yesterday! As I surveyed my studio with joy my eyes fell on the abandon rust buckets, all dried out from lack of use. A moment of sadness swept over me "Has it really been that long since I worked up here?"
I was able to set up a working area with the foot propped up (I usually work standing up and moving around from station to station) and finish the lamp shade recovering job for my son. The shades are covered with a rust print (on fabric you can see it here) from awhile back which has a random pattern he likes.

I wanted to join in the fun Searching for ROY G BIV Round #4 -2015 Because I wasn't able to go out to take photos(On crutches) I used what I had in the studio.
