Tottie and the Mermaids

Tottie Tomato thinks she’s dreaming!

Two Mermaids have come to live in the studio, and she is thrilled….

They have been singing beautiful songs to her

and telling her stories of the seashore,

and of ships that sail….

Tottie Tomato went to the ocean once, very long ago, the summer that she was born,

and she has been longing to go back.

Perhaps her dream will come true?

And, maybe the Mermaids will help her dream come true!

(And, if Mermaids are in your dreams, you can order my pattern from my website: LINK

or etsy shop: LINK or Ravelry shop LINK)

May the Mermaids sing sweetly to you!

Weave a Mermaid with the stick weaving loom

I love mermaids, and I never get tired of finding new ways to create more of them.

And, now, my newest mermaid is woven – on only 6 sticks!

Weaving sticks are probably the easiest loom ever – but that doesn’t mean that there is ANY  limit to their creative potential.

I have been having a wonderful time, designing all kinds of magical dolls with them.

I have just released the first of a series of VERY fun patterns for them-

The Mermaid….

I’ve woven these mermaids with hand spun yarn made by my beautiful daughter in law, LINK

using the  Weaving Stick loom kit from Lee Valley:USA Link  Canadian Link

If you are in Europe or England, you can buy weaving sticks from Suzanne in her etsy shop: LINK

By the way, there’s a wonderful group on Ravelry that is all about weaving with sticks and pegs: LINK

Here’s to Mermaids, and here’s to weaving, and, of course, here’s to sticks and string!!!  😀
