disappearing honeycomb

while listening repeatedly to this soundtrack
I've been weaving this sample -  inspired by a pic I of my sister I took earlier on -
bleached hemp for the warp and cassette tape for weft 
- stiff enough to retain its shape and shiny, for the magpie that hides in me -

Great! Love the design, the interplay between the shiny and matt materials, and the fact that you are recycling. Kudos!

Fascinating, Doni! It also reminds me of waves and water.

Dear Doni,
This is amazing. I really like the faiding out of the pattern.

Thank you everyone!
In fact, I've wanted to try weaving with cassette tape for a long time, and I've got loads of tapes that I could use....
