This time around, instead of high contrast, I tried a new approach: dark weft on dark warp. The warp is a mixture of black, brown, blues & greens, and this weft is a dark blue marl. The swirling antlers (yes, more antlers) are weft satin against yet another granite weave, and of course the antlers will be warp satin on the reverse side. Now grant you, this one won't exactly hit you in the face, but the more I look at it, the more I am liking it. Very mysterious.
If you absolutely must have bright colors, let me show you the beets & beet greens in the pot before they were cooked for last night's supper. Give some people a camera and they lose all self control.
And if that's not enough brilliance for you, I'll share this photo just in from our roving correspondent in Addis Ababa:
