Fiber Muse

I've been working on improving my photography skills - okay, who am I kidding? I am trying to acquire some photography skills - to go along with my new camera. I knew there was no way I could keep up with the different 365 groups. I'm a big believer in keeping your goals achievable to prevent giving up. The MCP Project 52 seemed to be a good fit for me. Week 5's theme was "Muse".  All photos have to be taken uploaded during that week.  The week ends Friday night and at 10:30 I found myself in my basement studio grabbing colorful fibers that inspire me.  I kept a shallow depth of field and used an action that blurred the edges slightly so you couldn't see the rest of the mess!  Posted it at 11:15.  Phew!

Fiber Muse

The warp is a new one that will be going on the loom tonight or tomorrow.  WEBS 2/14 Alpaca Silk in black (looks more like a really deep charcoal) for the warp and a light gray for the weft.  I have two different 2/2 twills in mind for the scarves and hopefully there will be a little leftover for sampling. 

This Week 6's theme is words.  Boy do I use a lot of them!
