I got my shelf that my x made me forever ago up in my room, along with the boat shuttle candle sticks Ms. Carol gave me forever ago. I love it! All things woven, including my pine needle baskets! The one with the buttons is my first ever weaving. It used to be framed, but the frame died so I used leave it laying around so I can look at it.
On to the current piece...red and green for the Facebook Color Challenge group project. A new color challenge is posted every two weeks, when I decided to try and see if my arm would let me weave again, it was a red and green challenge. So I got out all of my scraps of red and green and this is what I came up with. It is warp face double weave and waaayyyyyyy too narrow. But I needed something easy and mindless. I am thinking it may turn into a bell pull when it grows up. Maybe.
Oh yeah, and I gave Max's son his skull band and it now resides happily around the neck of his favorite stuffed animal. Makes me proud, he sleeps with that silly dog every night of his little life. But I digress.
I decided to try some lettering on this piece as it is kind of narrow for motif. I used the Bedouin star for a Christmas star and then did one of my little 'wingin it designs' of a Christmas tree. The letter is "Ho Ho Ho" of course. Short and sweet. Here is what I have so far.
It is only 15 warps wide total...small. Maybe a little over a half an inch. The bells I bought are a little large...not sure what I will do with it in the end.
