It's Summer!

I've made another bear painting for my sister! For Summer, I painted a polar bear holding a popsicle.

Rhubarb Compote

I made some delicious Rhubarb Compote from the recipe in Fika: The art of Swedish Coffee Break by Anna Brones & Johanna Kindvall for my Craft Book Club project this month! It was an incredibly simple recipe; using just rhubarb, sugar, and some mint leaves. I had no idea that rhubarb and mint paired so well. So far I've had it by itself, on ice cream, and in my morning oats. The little batch I made is almost gone and I've got lots of rhubarb growing in my garden so I'll need to make up another batch soon.

Brown and Grey Weaving

This is the first weaving I've made on my new loom!

It's made using a super bulky brown variegated yarn and grey roving. I'll be adding a stained dowel through the top loops to finish and I'll hang it in my living room as part of my himmeli heart gallery wall.

Do you have any suggestions for my next weaving? I plan on doing at least one more on this loom this year to finish up this part of my resolutions for the year.

Hallway Shelves

These shelves I stained earlier this year are now hanging at the end of my hallway next to my floral antler mount. They look pretty nice and now I have more space for displaying tchotchkes.
