Recently I received a message asking if I had any yellow sashes for sale. Hmm. No.
I don't use a lot of yellow in my weaving, personal wardrobe or surroundings. It's a perfectly good color that I maybe ought to pay more attention to.
So, I took this as a challenge, adding yellow (or it's cousins yellow-gold and straw) to several pieces. Here they are in a collection. I like them.
Then, since I had yellow on the brain, I decided to look for it when I was out on my morning walk. Guess what? It's all over the place in very interesting shades on a multitude of objects that I see every day. I walked around the block where I live and in that short distance I photographed 58 yellow objects, 28 manmade and 30 in nature. The mosaic below is a random representation of these objects.
There are some terrific pieces that I've woven in the past in which the yellow dominates.
Even though there is a lot of purple in this dance sash, the yellow really stands out, right?
