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.

Little Green Yarn Bomb

Saturday was International Yarn Bombing Day! I made and hung this little guy on a lamp post.

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.

Three Photos from Saturday

I am getting worse and worse about taking photos. This weekend I planned on getting lots of pictures while I was out and about, but only snapped two when I wasn't at home then took some rose photos when I came back home. I'm trying to find ways to help me remember to pull out my phone and take pictures so if you have any suggestions let me know in the comments below. Anyway, I'm sharing three Hipstamatic photos I took on Saturday:

roses. empty street. store cat.

If you would like to see all six photos I took on Saturday you can see them here. Spoilers: you'll see a houseplant, Winslow's paw, and more roses. Please give me suggestions of ways to remember to take photos; six photos is pathetic when you have planned on taking photos throughout the day. I'll be working on taking photos and share some in a month. We will see how well I've done.

Clay Loom and Weaving

A few months ago, Chelsea and I got together for a Crafternoon where we made things out of polymer clay. I made both the kitty bowl for my blogiversary giveaway and an organically shaped slab that I poked holes in to turn it into a weaving loom.

Weaving on a Clay Loom

After baking the clay slab, I painted it green with some pink flowers I learned how to make from our watercolor practice. Once the paint dried, I added my warp thread then got to work on the weaving, using bits of yarn/roving I had on hand. I'm not counting this as one of my goal of completing two new weaving projects this year since it doesn't use my new loom so expect to see more weaving projects!
