Words Cannot Describe…..

There is so much to “tell”, but I am starting off with the “show” part—enjoy!

These are the last 5 pictures in the series, something besides me decided I am supposed to show the last pictures first.

From the natural-dyed silk warp to the recycled cashmere weft, each thread was individually selected to correspond to a color sequence unique to HH The Dalai Lama.

You simply have to see and feel this cloth to receive the full impact of the quality.

I will tell you about the finishing process as I move backward in time.

Time is malleable….in weaving

    Those of us fortunate to have been able to fondle the fabric can find no words to describe just how scrumptious it feels! The hand is every bit as lovely as the appearance. Thanks for sharing, Bonnie.

    I just ordered your Color Horoscope Weaving through PayPal. The bonnie@bonnietarses.com was returned to me so I used PayPal. I will hold the astrological information until I receive an email from you with correct contact info. Bernice Vertner

    Hi Bernice, I don't know why you didn't receive my email which I wrote to you as soon as I received the paypal notification. My email hasn't changed. I don't know if you will see this message, but I think your computer doesn't want to talk to mine. (I actually sent you 3 emails, and none of them have come back to me)

    Bonnie, it's gorgeous!!! Wish I could see it in person, as I know it would look even better than gorgeous!

    As far as uploading pictures to blogger, the pictures I upload always reverse their order, so I choose them backwards, and also in groups of 5 or less, as it always puts the newer group at the top. Once you have uploaded the first 5 you can upload another 5!
