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!

Springtime Wreath Recycle - From Ivy to Rainbows

Grapoe vine wreath with Rainbows and Punched Tin Butterflies

I am loving how this turned out! Inspired by seeing a lovely little tutorial last fall for wrapping a few of the vine sections of a grape vine wreath with colorful embroidery floss - a brilliant and beautiful idea shared by Katie at Duo Fiberworks.

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".

Playing with Finnish Tonttu and Danish Nisser

P1130412

Here he is! My very own little Finnish Tonttu! I love him to pieces!

Up until December 11th, I was convinced there were no little Christmas elves to be found in Finland. On December 12th, thanks to a lovely reader named Dawn, I was directed to Lene who offered a complete how-to for making Finnish Tonttu on her blog Dances With Wool.
