a hammock, a monk and a chick

I have finished weaving the flying trasmatta. The last 20 cm took me forever .

my husband has made the sticks and we’ve hung the hammock  in the garden (it’s quite a huge thing).

I get a bit dizzy when I lie in it, but other people feel quite comfortable.

and here is  a little zen monk for the  rag doll show in Landskrona museum.


his kimono  is sewn from vintage japanese kimono fabric


(while making him I had this constant thought – hmm, may be  I should sit on my zafu more often…)


few days ago a  tiny chicken came out of an egg that we forgot to remove from under one of our extremely broody hens and another one hatched today (we thought that the odds are probably not so high, but they thought otherwise  :)

    Sweet! Love your monk. We have a big hammock, not homemade, though, and I kinda like the feeling of being in a little boat on a lake. Which size yarn do you use for warp on these things?

    lovely – all of it. the hammock will be enjoyed for years. the monk is adorable, want to give him a hug – instead I’ll bow, palms together – to both of you.
