It is funny to post irregularly and go from snow to green in this short physical space! I have entered Spoonflower's contest again, with my design Everything for the Garden. This was originally designed when I was learning jacquard design at Philadelphia U's Artist Jacquard Project (coordinated by Bhakti Ziek)in the mid-90s.
My kids were tiny and I incorporated their drawings into the design -- William at the age of 9 was an expert at drawing skeletons, and Rose at 4 made me a many-legged centipede (or caterpillar?). This design was woven in a 2-weft damask weave wit ha wonderful yellow space-dyed thread as ground, on top of basic black & white.
I took the original design drawing and revised it for print for the Spoonflower contest. Not bad!
