Weaving....

15th April 2015

Last few days our weather hasn't been very good so I have been up in my lovely loft space, very untidy at the moment, browsing my craft books and Pinterest for inspiration.....

.....I selected a variety of yarns and used my child's loom to create this weaving......

.....I wanted to incorporate some of my beach finds....

.....three shells, a striped flat pebble and some driftwood....


.....I don't really know why I enjoy simple weaving but I do find it very relaxing....

.....saw this idea on Pinterest.....


....next time will choose a pebble that is more square!!

I was in weaving mode so selected yarns from my stash....


.....I traced a circle on the back with water soluble pen and stitched around it then started....


.....four different threads used, think I might Kantha stitch around.....


.....been making this for the park today....


.....more photos when it is in situ!!!!

Pilates tomorrow.....
