Herron Gratitude Sunday

Another week under our belts, we as a collective whole are inching closer to warmer weather here in Chicago. The Sun is streaming today, (we may get up to 20 degrees!--Heat wave-- See that lovely sun streaming into my living room below.) I could not be more delighted about that! So lets see, starting off a new week with much on the docket; a custom scarf, a new warp, plans toward a big wholesale order, fun outings with friends and the ol' other day job! I am feeling gratitude for those things and also inner things; personal resilience, learning grace and ease, and fully enjoying what my life has to offer. (Yes, sometimes you have to learn that!) I've been taking time for some solitudinal (not a word but I am making it up now) soul searching, winter is a good time for such things (paired with piping hot coffee.)

I am in the midst of some planning for a new line of pillows and wall hangings that will coming later in the Spring to the shop. I am keen on jewel tones and geometry this year. I've been fully enjoying the planning stage this time around, painting out ideas in gouache, colored pencils and paper, then doing samples on the tapestry loom (Analog style!). Here is a fun little sampler I have been weaving on the tapestry loom, trying out some new things and teaching myself some new techniques. I am learning that I quite love research and development.

Very inspired by the Moorish geometry in this gorgeous tiled floor at The Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. (Pretty amazing tile work in this place!) I Hope to cull some aspects of it into my weaving later on.

Last but not least, Herron pillows are now for sale at Asrai Garden! (Thanks for the Instagram Love Asrai!)

Happy Sunday lovelies, Enjoy!
