Here I wove the fundamental shapes of the “squash blossom” motif found in weaving and pottery the world around: parallel stripes brought to life with angled lines. I find particular satisfaction in the rich, earthy yellows, golds, green-golds of squash blossoms in my garden. These are colors that wrap me in well-being as I weave.
