A lovely Scandinavian weaving workshop

Last week I enjoyed a wonderful weave along and slide show workshop on the zoom platform from the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts department at the University of Wisconsin.

The presenter was Laura Demuth. She was a lovely presenter- gracious and so well informed!

I am still swooning about the beautiful textiles that she showed slides of…. Scandianvian weaving is glorious!

I was delighted that the workshop participants were sent a sweet little loom from Hello!Loom.

When mine arrived in the mail, the first thing I did was to weave a little dress for tiny Willow, a doll that I carved a few months ago.

I started weaving the lady with flowers tapestry during the presentation as Laura demonstrated common motifs used in Scandinavian weaving. I finished the tiny tapestry the next day.

It was a lovely event and my thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make it happen!

Here’s a link to the workshop:

A Dragon tapestry for my husband

My husband really likes the dragon that I designed for my ‘Innovative Frame Loom Weaving’ book.

He asked me to weave him a dragon tapestry for Christmas, so I did.

I went a bit overboard on the beads, but he likes it, so that’s okay.

He hung it on the beam between the kitchen and the dining room to be the Guardian of the Hearth.

I am so glad that he likes it.

Woven with love in every stitch.

And, yup, I designed and made the frame for it.

I am so thrilled to have received the box of my copies of my new book:

It’s such a delight to hold this book in my hands- what with the pandemic and all it’s awfulness, I didn’t know if it would actually make it out into the world.

Welcome to the world, book!

But first, a cup of tea is needed and a moment to savor the happiness of all the hard work bearing its fruit! 🙂
