Weaving Words

I love weaving words into inkle woven bands.

In this picture, Tottie Tomato is wrapped in the words of Dame Julian of Norwich’s prayer:

And all shall be well

and all shall be well

and all manner of things shall be well…

I love this prayer and say it allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the time……….

To pay homage to Dame Julian and her wonderful prayer,  I wove the bands that I used to shape her body (and her banner) on my inkle loom. I crocheted her hands and head, and wove the remainder of the elements of the sculpture on various other small looms.

I use a simple pickup technique for weaving words.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so I think I should put ‘do a video of  weaving words’ on my to do list!

  2. It just amazes me how you can crochet in 3D without a pattern.

    The prayer is beautiful yet simple – like a mantra. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hello Eileen
    Crochet is so wonderful- it’s painterly AND sculptural! I love the way I can go in any direction I want with it.
    I agree- Dame Julian’s prayer is beautiful place to rest our hearts and minds!
