I have a passion for weaving toys that are not just for children, but also to light up the heart of adults, too.
Over the last year, I have been designing and weaving all manner of woven wonderfuls for my booth in all the heaps of artisan’s markets and maker’s faires that I have been doing.
Which is why I have been rather remiss in blogging – it’s all about the weaving, these days
It’s been a pleasure to let my imagination run wild and create one of a kind pieces without worrying about having to make sure that I can repeat the process to make patterns.
Not to imply that I don’t like designing and making patterns- I really do!
BUT…. it’s delicious to simply let my hands fly and listen to what emerges…. and to respond to what WANTS to emerge! In which case, I have had to build a series of new little looms to keep up with those ‘wanting weavies’.
Here are a few of my latest pieces:
I never get tired of weaving homages to Albert Einstein
Everyone in our family really likes gargoyles, so I had to weave one (and I feel the need to weave more! LOL)
And, we all quite like frogs- in fact, the joyous uproar of frog song in springtime is one of our favorite things!
This fellow seems very affable to me….
This Debonaire Ginger Cat is actually based on one of my patterns that is available on my website LINK or on my etsy shop.
And, for that matter, the pattern for dragons woven on the potholder loom is also available on my website:
And now, back to ‘one of a kinds’ – This is Dumpling Darling:
Ahhhhhhhh, babies….. I love to weave babies of all descriptions, like baby piglets:
and baby hippos:
Oh, yes, a monster or two….
And, sometimes, a fairy toadstool wants me to weave it….
At Christmas, I wove a capybara for my son in law:
and a fox:
So, now you see why my blogging hasn’t been up to scratch in 2013…. :) Too busy weaving….
But…. I do plan on being more active with my blog in 2014….
I have a lot of photos of pieces for my Woven Women show that I haven’t posted, so I need to get back to posting those. All in good time
I’ve been better at posting pictures to facebook, so if you would like to follow me on facebook, the link is:
