The pink cherry blossom is out in the garden now, making pink my colour of the week!
I decided to weave several small sample pieces (approximately 8 x 13 cm / 3.5 x 5 inches), experimenting with different patterns and ideas for each piece. The width of the loom allows for two sample squares to be woven at once (which was a little fiddly), or the piece can be woven using only half the width of the loom.
The individual tapestries are great quick projects, and a good way to use up any pieces of yarn left over from other makes. I plan to make a few more small tapestries, and then combine them in a project to be shown in a future post…
Bright greens make me think of spring- which is hopefully on it’s way!
After Monday’s post about mark-making tools I decided to have a go at lettering using a brush and ink. It was more awkward than I expected to achieve a neat result, but I quite like the slightly naive/rustic look that the technique lends itself to. I used water colours to add borders to the papers.
