Handwoven lace among the sunflowers.

I have finished a shirt made with my handwoven lace fabrics – mostly huck, with basketweave blocks for the shoulders and bronson lace for the sleeves.  I used the rest of the basketweave to make a shawl for my mother, and have enough of the bronson left for a sleeveless top.  Then I’ll find time to get back to the loom.

This photo was taken in my vegetable garden, which has turned into a sunflower jungle since I couldn’t resist keeping all the volunteer sunflowers even when they overshadow my tomato plants.  My apartment has been full of cut sunflowers all summer.
