Finally finished skirting and washing 6 fleeces. This was the 3 of the 6. The white and brown will be hand woven into a rug, then used as a mattress topper in the winter. The brown will be weaved either into a smaller rug or a set of cushions. Any bits that cant be used will be for toy stuffing. These fleeces are from a small local small holding 5 minutes down the road. #smallholding #britishwool #fibrearts #fleece #tapestryweaving #loomweaving #weaving #waldorfhome #naturalcrafts

We were in Cooktown in 1995 with our 2 young kids and hitched a ride on a yacht to Lizard Island. We camped and snorkelled there for a week. It was magical. I hope our kids get to do this with their kids before the reef disappears.

First impressions Ho Chi Ming City. Definitely worth visiting, but might not be a favourite for the faint-hearted. The streets of HCMC are busy, no matter the time of day. On the streets you will cross paths with pedestrians, bikers (some times on the footpaths), cars, bicycles carrying all sorts of things including steel doors, old fridges, entire families with pets, your imagination won’t cover all the things that people manage to get on their bikes. It is busy, hectic at times (most times), energetic, it feels alive.
In every corner you’ll find something to admire, observe or try to capture on your mobile. This city is an artwork in itself.
Perhaps because it is my first time travelling in SE Asia (Phuket didn’t count much as a cultural trip), but certainly the city, its people, food (I think there will be a insta post dedicated to this only), architecture, markets, and streets seem to have an aesthetic that is new to me. I have seen hundreds of books, photographs and paintings inspired by the people of Vietnam, their war and scars that left on their people, and the rise (or may say recovery) of the country post war. Nevertheless, I believe you need to experience the heat, flavours, smells, dynamics and dangers of crossing the streets to really understand what these images might be telling you.
Vietnam has been in my bucket list for a while and I am happy to be here.
First day was pretty intense, rich in flavours and experiences, and traumatic (a rodent 🐀 experience in the market - a bit like yours @nananananakatchan )
More to come...

Woven found me and it did so through Rachel Browns granddaughter: Teresa. The day we met, my life changed. To learn from Teresa was much more than she telling me: this is the warp, this is the weft” For every single question I had, she generously shared the answer. And if you think about it, she got that knowledge, maybe all of it, from Rachel. .
El telar me encontró. Y lo hizo a través de la nieta de Rachel Brown. El día que nos conocimos mi vida cambió. El aprender con Teresa fue mucho más que: “este es el urdido, esta es la trama”. Para cada pregunta que tuve, ella compartia generosamente la respuesta. Si lo piensas, ella obtuvo todo ese conocimiento, quizás todo, de Rachel.
