chinese paper weavings



Some days before I received from Virginia an old paper box, telling me "you will find what to do with its content..."  Its content was a kind of ball of Chinese newspaper cut in strips wrapping an old fashioned Chinese porcelain ball.


The strips spread out like large threads




 in order to be weaved on my frame loom



I don't know how to read this new text but I think it could be entertaining ;-)




I hope to find somebody to read it to me!
