Pounamu blankets

Sunrise with cloud formation over Tuhua Island.
If you follow diannedudfield'sweaving on facebook you will know that a while back I wove a blanket dyed in the colours of pounamu (greenstone) to compliment the By Nature Exhibition now showing at Inspirit Gallery, Tamahere.  This partner will soon be in Pauanesia in Auckland.
 This closeup shows some of the nuances of colour, one of my favourite blankets so far.
 I'm in the middle of a big secret project which involves over 50 metres of weaving, all threads hand dyed first.  This probably explains my absence of late.  Come June quite a bit of work will be able to be revealed.
