Mangos For Breakfast
My piece is a wrap called Mangos for Breakfast By the Startling Bougainvillea,
Take a look at my page, then go see everyone's! The starting page for the exhibit is at:
You can take a look at the shows from years past through the main page at:
And here are more pictures of Mangos....
And there are LOTS of ends in my freeform pieces. I'd work them in as I go and I do a little bit of that, but I really like to have the option to use the ends for surface embellishment that pulls the piece together. I even leave ends longer to facilitate that. Often it's not clear how or if the ends will be used until I'm nearing the completion of the work. So I always wind up with dozens of ends to do something with at the very last.

A little more bliss: the arrival last week of the May/June issue of Handwoven with a picture of my winning piece, "Motley." What an amazing feeling to see my work in a national weaving magazine! And to be in such good company. I say a big thanks to Interweave and Halcyon Yarn for sponsoring the contest, and to the Universe that keeps me going on this fiber journey.
