A Blackbird for a Customer

Hello dear reader,

While I am writing this article, it is Monday morning and I am back from an annual leave that was necessary and beneficial to renew energy and refuel myself.

In September I have finally introduced this special collection I named A Sinuous Dance. A collection where I explore the movement combining rope and driftwood.

In august, one of my customer made a special order for a mini blackbird item, with a contrasting thread on a white rope. Also she asked for a curly, wavy piece of driftwood, not too long. I had great fun to create this because I immediately understood it will be a brillant piece to make and to look at once done.

The whole basket

I must say I am very satisfied with the result and it inspired me other combinations of colour:

Gold thread on black rope

detail gold and black basket

detail black and gold basket

Vieux Rose on black rope. This one is on sale in my online shop here.

I have enough material now to continue this exploration and offer you more to see in the following months.

In the next article I will speak about a new plant I tried to dye with in August.

Take Care,
