This is my weaver's garden ... a small terraced patch off the front deck of the studio. It includes flax and cotton plants, dye plants, herbs and plants with scents like lavendar and scented geraniums.
It is a joy and butterflies and moths love it.
There's a wonderful ceramic garden totem with frogs and dragonflies that was made by my friend Cheri Platter. It's spectacular.
The St. Francis statue holds a small bowl for water.
Working on the porch to design my rugs, I get inspiration from the beauty I behold before me.
Here is a shot inside the studio during the tour last month:
The tours have been a great way to get people to visit the studio and see what we do here.
This rug rack was acquired from a gallery that closed last fall ... it holds more than 50 rugs!
It's a rainy day and probably a good opportunity to do some weaving inside where it's dry and warm. Even WeatherBug is confused today ... it's reporting 33.8 degrees at Columbus, Indiana at 10: 49 on July 22. I don't think so ...
