Weaving #2: How to Make Teneriffe Snowflakes

P1190812

Teneriffe Lace making is what Diane would refer to as "deep craft" a more "intense" craft that relatively few crafters will likely attempt. However, after struggling through the learning curve and actually finding teneriffe to be fun, I set out to create a very simple version of the sweet little circlets and thereby hopefully making it more appealing to a greater number of crafters. I call these "Teneriffe Snowflakes".

The next two weeks will be devoted to weaving! Lots of different kinds of weaving! And we are starting it off with Teneriffe and its "spin-off cousins" - flower looms.

Thinking some of you might be surprised at the sweet possibilities the flower looms offer - so I am sharing a few of them along with a link to one of the best free PDF's available for making loom flowers.

And in a couple more days - a tutorial from me to you for making a simplified Teneriffe lacy snowflake just like the one above! It is not as hard as it looks!

Truth! When I decided to join in on the Plastic Canvas Blog Hop hosted by Diane over at Craftypod, I had never in my life made one single stitch on plastic canvas. Tons of needlepoint and Bargello stitching yes, but never plastic canvas.

Welcome to a completely unplanned post! March was to have been pretty much set aside for eggs and Easter craft. However, at the end of February, I took Diane's new class on Craftypod - "Analytics Tricks" and by the time I completed the second class in the series "Understanding Your Top Content", I felt so empowered and excited by all that I was learning that I rearranged my post schedule to create room to share my enthusiasm!
