Table Mats…Can’t think of a catchy title!

Well, I’ve not been online for a while, which makes me look like a slacker…I’ve got a very good excuse, really I do!
My cotton warp is made and on the loom and have started weaving. The colours are based on colour forecasts for Summer 2008 for interiors, beautiful powder pinks, fleshy tones, pale green and blue. To be honest the colours make me think of buildings I’ve seen in pictures of Miami (never been so I can only say I’ve seen it in pictures!) and now every time I sit down to start weaving, I have U2’s song “Miami” in my head!

I am a native of Ireland, but have been living and weaving between Barcelona and Ireland for over 21 years now; mostly in Barcelona. I studied woven textiles (and dyeing and felting) at Winchester School of Art, UK and have lived and worked in Ireland, UK, Japan and now Spain. Weaving takes up the space in my brain that is not filled with my daughter, son, husband and family - and "grown-up paid non-weaving work"...(the "mortgage paying" kind that takes up most of my time! As well as housework and sundry other things which I usually try to ignore as long as possible).

  1. Mmmmm, lovely colours. I haven’t even seen pictures of Miami, so they are making me think of frescoes – lots of colour but with a softening chalkiness.
