kinds of blue

gold and cerulean
my words woven by the incredible neki in barcelona. a gift she sent to me, a thank you for my words. this is what the internet does well: connects you with someone you'd never meet, a weaver, who masters using technology as a tool for weaving, who has a aesthetic that is  inviting and is an accomplished craftswoman. and she makes fiber books! what you can't see in the photo is how much of a puzzle it is to read those words. i struggled for a long time. the photograph picks them up, but not the depth of weaving, or the brilliant blues.
and i've been making milkweed pulp from the bast fiber in the stalks, not the seeds. i have spun the seed fiber before, and have saved a bunch in the freezer to pulp later on.
struggling with another sinus infection and a tooth that is being capped. there's a strange giant temporary living on my 6 year molar! it's weirder than braces were.
