Rana is my new weaving project for the exhibition Spinning Time for Österlens Museum, Skåne, South Sweden, this summer. Hand spun warp, weft of hand felted wool from Gotland. Rana is inspired by traditional Norwegian Sea Sami textiles. Spiining Time is a collaborative project conducted by Fiber Art Sweden, initiated by Gunnel Pettersson, funded by the Swedish Arts Council..
Today I saw the sun breaking through the ice on my windows. Minus 5 degrees, no wind. The large pile of wool lies there on the table, waiting to be transformed into a weaving for Österlens museum this summer.
Today the weather in Gotland is cold and windy. I am working with my upcoming weaving Earth, in green and blue tones. Greatful for being alive in the middle of it all.
