Boxing Day Weaving

Best place for my loom, next to the tree and the other side the dog asleep.
Handspun, dyed bast fibers and native fibers woven into an art piece

Can't wait to take my pieces off the loom.

Christmas Project

This christmas, I gave myself a gift.
The gift of time, not to cook, entertain or rush around but to stay inside, enjoying the christmas tree next to my loom and weave. This was my first project which I started Christmas Eve:
Weaving with hand dyed and spun bast fibers and sticks

Handwoven Towels

I finished my towels which I wove in tabby and 2/2 high twill.
I used the same tie up with different treading options for the patterns.
Quite please with the outcome, was surprise to see how much they shrunk, when I washed them and put them in the dryer.

Finished kitchen curtains

This past weekend I put my kitchen curtains up and I like them. They go perfectly with my IKEA kitchen and complete the look.

Love it. Pretty soon I have enough for more weaving.

Origami Wreath

Last night at our weaving class at SSA, we made origami wreath. You need 12 pages, so they will look very pretty if you reuse your old calendar. I will have to try it in January. Hopefully, I haven't forgotten how to make it.

And here is the end result. We used origami paper:
