Just before heading into work the other day, a DHL truck pulled into my driveway and handed me a package from Mexico!! It is from my traveling pirate, who knows I love textiles. It contained a book on Mexican weavings. The cover said "Bilingual". There may be two languages in that book -but neither one is English. The pictures are all I care about anyway. They are wonderful. Also in the box were some actual Mexican textiles. Yippee!
This is a detail from a tapestry made from bits of colored Roving. I very carefully pulled back on the tufts of wool to make sure it isn't painted onto something prewoven. I am impressed by the vibrant colors, and the detail the weaver got with roving!
Above is the whole image.
Here is a small embroidered bag - so cute! Just the right size for a home for my I-pod. Thanks sweetie - I love them all.
