Tapestry, Shows and June

Here is a shot of the completed tapestry for May. The new color was blue green and there are lots of references to the weather. We sure have been having some this Spring! This will be the first month on the new panel of daily practice for 2013. Many of these symbols are not apparent to anyone but me. For example the grey rectangle on May 11 stands for new Apple laptop. Yes!! My little robot head is about how I felt coming down from a very busy month or so, no time to think, just do... the tornado shapes, rain and shine and wishful thinking, it's all here.

June is underway with yellow green as the new color of the month. I imagine I can see the mellowness unfold as I have had more time to work on my tapestry the last couple of weeks. I am feeling optimistic about reaching my goal of having the Mango Hunters off the loom this year!

Next weekend on June 8 I will have a booth at Rendezvous in Edmund, OK. This will be the anniversary of the first show I did last year with the Fiber Studio. So much has happened in a year! Towards the end of the month I will have a booth at the Midwest Weavers Conference. There is more information about both of these shows to the right under scheduled shows. My good friend Jeannine Glaves will be the keynote speaker for  Midwest and I am looking forward to that and being a first time vendor there.

June first was the meeting of the Tulsa Handweavers Guild and we were honoring our 60th anniversary. Here is guild president Margaret Lee and Ruth Morrison, one of our long time members and incredible mentor for all of us taking a picture of...

the cake.

Finally, a photo of a new bracelet on the 16 inch Mirrix loom. It is a wrap bracelet with leather cord as the outer warp. It is quite long, hence the tiny warp on the 16 inch loom with the extenders in place. My plan is to have five wraps with each section being a slightly different design. It has silver beads between each of the five designs and will have a silver button closure. I plan to get another warped on a smaller loom for the show next weekend if I can pull away from the Mango Hunters in time.

Hope to see some of you at Rendezvous next weekend.
