Raffia Woven Star

Taking another look at the possibilities for Yarn Stars. Weave them with Raffia!

Honestly, I am loving the look and texture of this favorite star woven in raffia instead of yarn.

Perfect for fall!

How to Weave "Zen" Art Bookmarks

Saori (Zen Weaving) Bookmarks

Saori woven bookmarks headed to the Bookmark Swap hosted by Chris at ParabolicMuse.

I feel like a fish out of water - making bookmarks! Never made a bookmark in my life unless you count the wrinkled little scraps of paper that poke out of nearly every book in my library!

Enchanted God's Eyes (Ojos de Dios) - a Journey

P1130686

Gorgeous hand spun yarn rescued at a thrift.

Treasures left to be discovered on my path by crows, jays, sea gulls, robins and chickadees.

Inspiration from Susan, a reader who shared a picture of a gift she made a good friend.

The seeds of a new God's Eye (Ojos de Dios) to add to my collection.

I have never outgrown my absolute enjoyment of weaving a God's Eye. Perhaps it has to do with something Susan said about "the symmetry and intent of protection of the God's Eye".

Woven Gingerbread Man Ornament

P1130044

Just finished a couple more woven ornaments for Meg's Crafty Christmas Tree Challenge.

I decided after having success with my little heart, that I would see how far I could push this! There are lots of curves and nooks and crannies associated with the shape of a gingerbread man. I am happy to be able to report that it worked perfectly!
