Dominoes new work

I'm pretty excited about these new scarves. The idea came from a warp I did in 2004. I wasn't selling at many shows then, and most were bought by friends so I have been seeing them over the years. I kept saying to myself, "Now that's a nice scarf, I wonder how I did that?" I took the Dominoes image from those, and combined it with a design I had done even longer ago, inspired by a weaving by the famous Bauhaus weaver and writer Anni Albers. This is nothing new, lots of my work is inspired by Anni Albers. Her book, On Designing has kept me going through many long nights of wondering what I'm doing here.

Back to the current work. This one is in a nice, soft, hand-dyed red. I'm planning also a forest green, purple, maybe violet, and a couple that use several weft colors. Watch this space, or better yet, come to the ACC show in Baltimore at the end of February and get one for yourself.
