Blogging and weaving
One of the reasons I started this blog was to encourage myself to keep making things. Somehow, having somewhere to show them really helps me to keep up the good work – it’s like having a coach cheering me on from the sidelines!
Jesse gave me this very simple loom just before Christmas (thanks, Jesse!), and yesterday I tackled it for the first time, having great fun trying out different weaving patterns. So today I’m showing the very beginnings of my weaving project, and hope my blog will keeps cheering me on to finish the darn thing to post it here.
By the way, she’s a knitter, not a weaver, but as I’m weaving my funny little sampler, I can’t help thinking of Icelandic designer Helene Magnusson’s work. Check out the felted things in her Etsy shop too.
PS: I’m away until Friday, but there’s lots to read at the Elle Decoration blog all week, so do pop over.
