I didn’t feel like weaving but rather to watch It’s a Wonderful Life for the umpteenth time, but what to do with my hands. I have several warps in mind for the upcoming year, so I thought it might been fun to do some wrapping. For scale, the widest are 1″ x 6″ although I can imagine them being large enough to be a room divider.
Most of the wrappings are words and colors selected by clients.
From left to right the words are: mirror imaged UNFOLDING in two different colorways; TOUGH, CHEERFUL, INSIGHTFUL; mirror imaged my last name TARSES in my colors and then my mother’s colors; ENLIGHTENMENT; OHM (repeated 3 times); FAST, ENTHUSIASTIC, CURIOUS; ENERGY, BALANCE, WISDOM; INTELLIGENT; INNOVATIVE.
I have come to believe that single words repeated or mirror imaged make a stronger statement.
The single word I am taking for myself and everyone into 2009 is HOPE. I think I will go and wrap it right now.
