A tiny tapestry

Ups! El otro día, hablando de tapices en el post de Miró, me di cuenta que no te había mostrado el otro tapiz que tejí en el taller de Maria Dolors el año pasado. Es un tapiz muy pequeño, de apenas 7cm de ancho, y de líneas sencillas.

¿Has probado a tejer un tapiz?
Para pequeños formatos puedes hacerte tu el telar, incluso con una caja de cartón, y aprovechar restos de fibras que tengas. Es divertido.
Es un arte con muchas posibilidades y en el que puedes ser muy creativo. Sólo hay que dejarse ir, sin tapujos. Jugar con los materiales… Sentir. Mmmmm… ¡Mis manos me piden movimiento!

M.Dolors me dijo que éste tenía un aire mallorquín. Unos meses después me fui a vivir a la isla.

Going for a walk among sheeps

Last April, walking through Tramuntana mountains, I found a flock of sheep grazing and resting peacefully among the olives. I stopped for a while without disturbing to hear the sound of their bells.

I love the sound of bells.

Time seems to stop. These moments make me happy.

Later, this little one had strayed from his flock. She was crazy looking back with the group. All sheeps were bleating and bleating to guide her, but she don’t finds a way to join them. That sound was shocking.

She finally got back to the flock and I felt relieved.
Enjoy mountains!

The value of handmade

The handmade things need time. You can be skillful and faster with the technique, you need time. And it is not only the time you spend in the final implementation. Previously you had to design it. The drawing, colors, measures… You’ve also selected the materials, you tested them. All this takes time. And I have the impression that time is not valued.

A few months ago I finished knitting this pure wool blanket. And, just curious, I wanted to know how long I spent crocheting it, not counting all the previous steps I mentioned earlier. I spent 30 hours with the crochet hook. Five hours is the maximum time that I could be followed crocheting, my wrists and tendons suffer too much.

Another point is the materials. As you know, I like working with natural fibres and high quality. For this blanket I used 100% wool from the Peruvian highlands. It is thick and soft. To crochet this blanket, 109 x 138 centimetres, I needed 12 balls of 100 grams each.
More than 1kg of wool!
Considering the value of the wool only, this blanket cost € 105.

What I value most is the satisfaction of knitting the blanket to my liking. Next winter I will smoothly warm 🙂
