Part of the member show at the Textile Center in Minneapolis - my handwoven jacket/vest.
Every year the Textile Center has a member show, if you have a chance go see it. The show includes diverse media -- not all fiber, but all tactile.

I made these linen and wool weavings for the 'small works' show our gallery is having for the month of January. I love the translucent look of the weave materials, the natural linen with the white wool. It speaks of winter to me. I hung them in the tree to see what they would look like in the breeze and in the window, in both places they brightened the gray wintry day. Had to try them with the background on the brilliant white snow too. Isn't snow miraculous? I love it. Even though it can mess up a trip or cancel an event, it is the nature of winter and wondrous.
